  • Angel, I'm sober
    I got off that stuff
    Just like you asked me to
    Angel, come closer
    So the stink of your lies
    Sinks into my memory
    She said baby, forever, but I don't like to be alone
    So don't stay away too long
    Baby, forever, well it's Tuesday now
    I hear him breathing inside of her
    Let me drink
    Let me tie off
    I'm really slobbering now
    Let it stink
    Let it dry up
    It's impossible
    How?
    Angel, forever
    Don't you promise me what you cannot deliver
    Angel, together
    I'll be waiting for you on Fountain and Fairfax Writer/s: GREG DULLI

  • Dlleeman from Kingston, Ontariothe Whigs are criminally underrated, their songs have so much deeper meaning then the lyrics on the surface suggest. I would love to pick Greg Dulli's brain if he was so willing to take a deep dive into a few of the songs and what they are actually about.
  • Annikki from Cincinnati, OhUh, I'm a Cincinnatian. I appreciate you trying to honor the memory of Sudsy's, yet this is NOT where the Afghan Whigs first played out in the region. I am just old enough to remember the actual venue where they played: The Jockey Club. It closed in '88 when I was in high school. There is a website honoring the Jockey Club. On this site, there is a full calender of all the bands that played the venue. The Whigs played there in '86. If you ever want to really understand local music, learning about the JC is a must. Guided by Voices also played out there in the 1980's. Thanks guy from Thistle! Here's the link: http://home.fuse.net/hohorecords/jockeyclub_calendar.htm
    Oh, Whigs fans- if you go to this site you can see a pic John Curley took of Henry Rollins of Black flag. Also, the Whigs first played under the name The Black Republicans.
  • John from Levittown, NyOne of the greatest mean spirited sounding songs out there. They managed to run the gamut from heartbreak to hatred and never look out of place doing either.A shame that so many crap bands make millions while bands like the Whigs and the Replacements never got their due.
  • John from Levittown, NyThe Whigs were huge Motown fnas, as witnessed by Uptown Avondale, an album of cover songs released on the Sub Pop label. Allegedly, Martha Reeves jined them on stage at a concert for a few songs
  • Montgomery from Florence, KyThe Afghan Whigs hail from my hometown of Cincinnati, Oh. They got their start playing at a bar/laudrymat concert venue called Sudsey Malone's, and at a bar concert venue called Bogart's...Bogart's just so happens to be accross the street from Sudsey's!
