Whigs Influence Still Strong
Two Afghan Whigs references from major media in the past week.
In Popmatters.com’s review of the Damien Rice show at TLA in Philadelphia, they say it was “the greatest rock and roll show that the Theater of Living Arts has seen since the Afghan Whigs blew the doors off in 1999.”
The Oregonian’s review of the Interpol show in Portland said, “Interpol also showed the influences of more modern, guitar-drenched bands such as the Afghan Whigs, Shudder to Think, Radiohead and even fellow New Yorkers the Strokes. ” The Whigs are keeping pretty good company in that list.
