Biographie der Mitwirkenden
Where some artists write from the head and others from the heart, Whigs' songwriter/frontman Greg Dulli writes from the groin. His lyrics are filled with dark images of romantic obsession. Perhaps no other band can play with such restraint, letting musical tension build until it can do nothing other than explode. Dulli in his finest voice can move from desperate screams to a quiet sinister crooning at the turn of a chord. The band split up in 2001. Greg Dulli continued recording and performing as part of the Gutter Twins (with Mark Lanegan) and The Twilight Singers. 1965 is the name of their sixth and final album originally released in 1998. Its cover photograph shows astronaut Ed White on the first American space walk as part of the Gemini 4 flight which took place in, you guessed it, 1965. This release comes with an astonishing amount of no less than 7 bonus tracks (previously issued on the 'Somethin' Hot' and '66' EP's) and an extra 8-page full color booklet.

Das ist so eine Platte die sich sehr gut für eine Cabriofahrt durch eine sommerliche Großstadt eignet.

For the price of a "new" CD you could probably find a used one much cheaper with the packaging complete.
Four stars for the music. One star for the packaging.
Picture this - it's 1998, and the kind of bleak alt-rock that your band has specialized in for the past decade isn't exactly in fashion anymore. Facing sagging sales and general public distinterest, what do you do? Reinvent your sound in favor of something passionate, soulful, swaggering, confident, unique, intelligent and real.
Ten years later, I was in a record store chatting with some folks I know who work there. One of them puts on some early Afghan Whigs, which reminds me that I used to listen to this band way back when but have since lost touch. So I go home and take a look at their catalogue on amazon, and figure I'll order this one because of some of the reviews it received. Back then, just a few weeks ago, this CD was in-print (looks like for some reason it's not now - an injustice to the music-listening public for sure). A few days later it came in the mail. I put it in the player and was absolutely blown away.
This is unlike anything I have ever heard before - a perfect synthesis of raucus hard-edged alt-rock and pure, classic soul (complete with keys and female backup singers, sometimes even horns). It has a huge, wide sound as deep in breadth and scope as a U2 record. Greg Dulli struts and swaggers across the front, he's overtly lustful while recognizing the complexities of romantic liaisons. It's that duality which gives his performance character - instead of wallowing in self-pity he carries himself with the confidence of the man of the world we all know he was/is. Plus the sax solo on "John The Baptist" just kills me. I can't believe anyone could not appreciate this record - there is just so much going on.
I wish I had discovered this one when it was new, but it really doesn't matter - it's sound is timeless and will always be fresh. It's a pity that this band broke up after the release of this record, but then perhaps this was a one-time-only creation, a moment in time that can't be replicated. Whatever the case this carries my highest recommendation.
Black Love was an arc of those dark recesses, hinted with the gritty cities of the Northeast, Cincinnati, or elsewhere, their music is not really appropriate for say Miami or LA, it's built from the toughness of the rustbelt mixed with despair and elation, even putting them in the Big Easy doesn't necessarily take them away from their northern lackluster economy area roots, only adds some fire to the struggle. 1965 ads just a tough more sin to what was already there, and dare I say... fun? Fun as much as the Whigs could produce, the type of fun that happens in the AM hours where a light anesthetic of drinks or other libations has brought out the inner "don't give a f***" in someone and is putting all their carnal efforts towards motivations questionable but primal and more real than that person who may sit in a cubicle or act in a way society expects them too. It's raw, it's powerful, it's everything the Afghan Whigs were, and hopefully will be again.
Because sin, sin is in, and so we begin.
