  • 33 1/3: Afghan Whigs' Gentlemen


Greg Dulli's liquor cabinet confessions are chased with some of the blackest sounding rock ever committed to tape by a white band. Hopped up on primal energy, the mesmerizing R&B, funk, slide blues, garage, and chamber-pop strains are tied to a come-hither soulfulness perfumed with hyssop and stained with nicotine. To this day, GENTLEMEN remains as cursed as its controversial narrator, an album out of time even in its time. Drawing on new, in-depth interviews with all of the band members, Bob Gendron dissects the record's charisma, arrangements, and lyrics. He also delves into the memories, histories, experiences, and influences of the Afghan Whigs, most notably those driving Greg Dulli , a polarizing frontman whose fierce pretentiousness, GQ appearance, and gloves-off boisterousness concealed deep-rooted mental depression and chemical dependency. Keep up with 33 1/3 series news.
