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.

twentysixteenAlso on tap for the program is a very cool cover of ‘You Spin Me Round’ from Gregg Stewart.  This sounds completely different than what Pete and the boys in Dead or Alive came up with.  And Mr. Stewart has an an entire record of covers from artists who passed in 2016, appropriately titled ‘TwentySixteen.’

We will also have some #LookingBackIndie from Van Morrison and Crowded House.  We are also continuing our quest to get one more show from Smug Brothers!  Say it with us “One! More! Show!”  And although everyone thinks that Madness — yeah that band! — has not put out new music since ‘Our House,” we have a cool song from a record that they released just last year!

Co ManAnd since attendance is mandatory at the Company Man Retreat on August 4th we have a few songs from Company Man in the set!   We cannot wait for our net worth to move from boring billions to terrific trillions!  Thanks CO man!

See you Tuesday, August 1st around 3pm over at WUDR.udayton.edu!

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.
