The Big Issue in the North – Afghan Whigs Tribute Review

BITNFrom the June 29-July 5 issue of The Big Issue in the North

Summer’s Kiss: A Tribute to the Afghan Whigs Buy Now
4/5 Stars

Coming up alongside Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Mudhoney, the Afghan Whigs stood apart as a rock band with an appreciation for soul and Motown. This tribute album features some big names alongside lesser known artists. Capturing the early, frenzied melodies from album Up in It, Sweden’s Sounds Like Violence do a rapturous version of Sammy. Mark Lanegan adds an even more sinister undertone to Tonight and Joseph Arthur is suitably hypnotic on the lonely Step into the Light. A mix of album tracks and singles are tackled, making it a treat for fans and a perfect introduction for the uninitiated.
