  • Afghan Whigs

    One of the more critically acclaimed bands of the ’90s, Cincinnati’s Afghan Whigs released seven albums between 1988 and 1998, but never broke out of their cult status. Characterized by frontman Greg Dulli’s tortured tales and a soul-inflected post-punk sound, the Afghan Whigs fit right in on Seattle’s Sub Pop label – though they were the first non-Pacific Northwest band on the indie label’s roster. Receiving airplay on MTV and song placement on the television series My So-Called Life, Afghan Whigs released two full-length albums, Up in It and Congregation, and an EP of soul and R&B covers, Uptown Avondale, on Sub Pop before signing with the major label Elektra. Replacing Earle with Paul Buchignani, the band took a darker turn on 1996’s Black Love, and contributed two songs to the Ted Demme film Beautiful Girls. Citing geographical separation, the Whigs split in 2001, making their 1998 Columbia Records release, 1965, their last.
