    Here's to hoping there's a stream up somewhere before Weekend 1!

    Nice!

    Everyone in my group is responding pretty much the same way... They're all like "We know Ed's been obsessed with these guys forever... so now's a good chance to check them out"... and they've all come back saying that the band is nothing like they expected and loving everything they've heard.

    Makes me happy to see... and will make it even more entertaining, being with them as they get to see The Whigs for the first time in April!

    I wish my friends would be like that.
    I'll probably be by myself most of friday. For the Whigs, Replacements, bryan ferry, jon spencer blues explosion at least. Pretty much for all the best stuff.

    Crossing my fingers hoping this means we get a Localchella date on album release day.

    Now on my list I heard some of their songs, but never knew the artist.

    Did the Debonair video play on MTV back when it came out?
    odd question, but that video seemed so familiar to me. I may have watched that with my brother a few times when i was like 2 or 3 years old.
    Am I an Afghan Whigs fan almost 20 years in the making?

    Fuck
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Today's Coachella Song of the Day: “Faded” from The Afghan Whigs’ Black Love

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli backstage at Lollapalooza 2012 for Guitar World. The interview didn’t go as well or as long as I had hoped, with Dulli giving short answers to my basic questions that, in hindsight, were begging for quick replies. That’s not to say he wasn’t friendly, because he was very nice to me. I just wasn't expecting a question like “When The Afghan Whigs regrouped in 2011 after being away for most of the last 12 years, did you guys click right away?” to be met with a simple “Absolutely.”

    My big mistake was trying to keep my questions related to Lollapalooza, which I did because the piece I was writing was a recap of the three-day Chicago festival (you can read it here: http://bit.ly/1hNKujg). The above question was the only one not concerning the festival itself, and in retrospect I realized that The Afghan Whigs reunion demanded more focus. Maybe it was the fact that he was already running 30 minutes late and there were more writers in line or perhaps it was the 47-year-old Dulli’s intimidating aviators, but I wrapped the whole thing up after about two minutes.

    So has anyone else listened to the album yet? Right now I think my favorites are Matamoros and These Sticks. But I really need to listen many more times and with a better quality set up than through my iphone earbuds.

    For those who haven't come across this: if you've pre-ordered the album from sub-pop, you can access a stream of the full album.

    The new song The Lottery is cool, although it sort of sounds like they are going for a U2-esque sound with that lead. I am not listening on great speakers, but Greg's vocals sound a bit ragged as well. Solo at 2 minutes sounds Pearl Jam-esque, into it.

    Whatever they play, them on the polo fields is going to be amazing.

    There was a couple behind me that I wanted to fucking smack last night... and back in the day, if Dulli had heard them, he'd probably have told them to fuck off. Spent the entire set cussing the band out after every song because they weren't playing Gentlemen.

    Were you the one that told them to fucking leave if they didn't like it? Thank you if so, I was standing right next to them (was trying to tell them to chill but to no use) and they were on a whole 'nother level of fucked up. Guy was singing the theme to the Flintstones before the set.

    I thought the Whigs sounded fantastic, but I didn't know a few of the songs. Didn't matter.

    Sadly, I can not take credit for that... at some point I ended up moving a little closer and they were a little less annoying as a result...

    On a tangential note: With the Whigs doing "Heaven on Their Mind" and Pet Shop Boys doing "Somewhere" last night... I really want to know if someone will keep the "one showtune per day" streak going today

    Thought they were fantastic, but the tent was only 1/3 full. Sort of a bummer, but they sounded excellent. Even my GF who had never heard them before thought they were great.

    Yeah this was great. I'm also pretty sure they had four guitar players during the first song. rad.

    Wasn't a fan. New stuff is fine but has yet to do much for me. Still worth going just to hear Something Hot, tho.
