Album Review

With 1965, the Afghan Whigs finally made the gritty soul record just always out of their reach — seamlessly integrating the R&B aspirations which have textured the band's sound since the beginning, the music simmers with raw energy, its deep, dark grooves not so much white-boy as simply white-hot. Recorded in New Orleans, the album is plainly the product of its environment — sultry, sleazy, and more than a little menacing; here more than ever, Greg Dulli is the frontman you love to hate, strutting and swaggering his way through standout tracks like "Something Hot," "Uptown Again," and "John the Baptist" with predatory aggression. (Who else would deliver a lyric like "I got the devil in me, girl" as though it were a pickup line?) Still, for all its cocksure arrogance, 1965 is nevertheless a sincere tribute to the classic music recalled by the album's title — lyrics aside, even if Dulli did sell his soul, he's somehow managed to get it all back.

Customer Reviews

one of the best records of the 90s

I heard "St Jean the Baptist" at Sam The Record Man in 99 and bought it. Subsequently bought all Whigs & Twilight Singers releases - this still tops them all. Many will say Gentlemen is the definitive Whigs album and perhaps it is in mood but 1965 seems to be the real expression of the Motown R&B spirit that seems to motivate Greg Dulli. This is a mostly lustful positive album while all the others have a lot of darkness and control themes to them (though I love them too). If you like this I would also suggest Twilite and She Loves You by the Twilight Singers.

Great

Gentleman is supoosed to be their star but Black love exceeds every album for emotion

Biography

Formed: 1986 in Cincinnati, OH

Evolving from a garage punk band in the vein of the Replacements, Dinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney to a literate, pretentious, soul-inflected post-punk quartet, the Afghan Whigs were one of the most critically acclaimed alternative bands of the early '90s. Although the band never broke into the mainstream, it developed a dedicated cult following, primarily because of lead singer/songwriter Greg Dulli's tortured, angst-ridden tales of broken relationships and self-loathing....
