I love the Afghan Whigs. My wife loves them even more. Like, *a lot* more (Greg Dulli superfan #1). Our first kiss was to a Whigs song. We’re psyched for the band’s first new album in 15+ years and we like the first song they just put out, “Algiers.”
But the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the Very Serious Western-y video for the song was Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” from 1986. So I recut it :-)
Sorry Mr. Dulli. I first saw you guys around 1990 at Sudsy’s in Cincinnati and last saw you for the Whigs’ “final” show NYE 2012 in Cincy! Here’s a pic I shot in 1992.
Hey YouTube! This is fair use parody. Please don’t send me another copyright infringement notice.
*Update: YouTube has blocked this video in “some countries” (actually, 249—which is more countries than even exist). “Sorry about that.” says YouTube! It’s now on Vimeo so we’ll see how that goes.
