The Afghan Whigs’ Gentlemen, 20 Years On
The Afghan Whigs, a band that would have never crossed my radar, if I did not see Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at the Fillmore west in San Francisco in 1994. Being a Nick Cave fan since his days with Birthday Party. Little did I know that the warm up band, The Afghan Whigs was going to give performance and an album that became one of my favorites still to this day.
Gentlemen the album – explores the rise and the long fall of relationships. It is all said in the opening line of the first song “What should I tell her”, “she’s going to ask”. So if you ready for angst felt lyrics with haunting guitar work. Give this a run through your ears and see.
