Video of the Day: The Afghan Whigs featuring James Hall – You Want Love (Pleasure Club Cover)

The Afghan Whigs’ new single is a cover song that they recorded in tribute to the band’s late guitarist Dave Rosser, who passed away last month following a brave battle with inoperable colon cancer.  Rosser’s incredible guitar work can be heard on 2014’s ‘Do To The Beast’ and the album released this year ‘In Spades.’  Rosser had also played with Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan in The Gutter Twins and in the post-Whigs project, The Twilight Singers, prior to the return of The Afghan Whigs in 2011.

“You Want Love” was first recorded by the now-defunct New Orleans band Pleasure Club, whose musical force James Hall contributes vocals to The Afghan Whigs’ new version of the song.  Thank you for the fine music Mr. Rosser.

Video of the Day: The Afghan Whigs – ‘Oriole’

The Afghan Whigs have returned with yet another great new record, ‘In Spades’ that captures the raw energy of Mr. Greg Dulli and Companies’ sonic textures, vocals that bridge the divide between a sexy whisper and a caterwaul of emotion within a deep rhythm that makes even the most ardent non-dancer sway.  This record marks the continued significance of this band’s powerful evolution.  They are on tour.  Make the plans now.
