I Will Try Again, . . Shall I?



I am going to try once more to persuade you of the genius of Greg Dulli. When I have posted anything before by either the Afghan Whigs or The Twilight Singers there has been a distinct lack of interest.  Apart from Tommy Bolin they have been the least downloaded tracks, christ,  Bonnie Tyler was downloaded more, for fuck's sake!

Anyway, this track comes from the final release on Sub Pop by The Afghan Whigs, Uptown Avondale which was an ep of covers apart from the tune posted which was a remix of the final "hidden" song on the Congregation album.

The track shows that Dulli had been listening to what has been going on over the previous few years on this side of the pond,  as included in the heady brew of alternative rock, 70's funk and Motown which are prevalent in all of Dulli's music he has also added a bit of indie dance to the mix.

Therefore, please listen without prejudice (the only time a George Michael reference will ever be made on this blog) and give it a go,

It's good, trust me!

I'm not a major fan, but I do like them. My problem was that I thought they were much better live. They were on fire live so anything less....

You're preaching to the converted with me - I've loved them ever since I saw them playing Debonair on TV back in the early nineties. Simon's right - an amazing live act, throwing in covers of Prince and New Order and the Supremes at will.
