Afghan Whigs Tribute: Silver Bridge Disaster Covers “Gentlemen”
When we first solicited recordings for the Afghan Whigs tribute album, we were overwhelmed with the response. There were a number of songs that we loved but just couldn’t fit onto the album. Over the next few days, we’ll be making some of our favorite non-album tracks available for download.
Silver Bridge Disaster: “Gentlemen”
When planning this album, it was always our intention to include a young Cincinnati band. While it didn’t work out that Silver Bridge Disaster’s contribution made its way to the final track listing, it stuck with us as a reminder that Cincy’s music scene is still very much alive and thriving.
Named for the 1967 Ohio River bridge collapse that took 46 lives, SBD takes its local roots seriously. However, they injected their take on “Gentlemen” with a good bit of irreverence and fun, making the song their own. The two-pronged Prog guitar duel at the 2:05 mark will bring a smile to your face.
