50 Greatest Pop Songs Recorded in Cincinnati

From Cincinnati Magazine 24. “Miles Iz Ded” Afghan Whigs (Sub Pop, 1992) The Whigs weren’t being coy when they made the best song on their 1992 album Congregation a hidden extra track.

Dulli Live Review: Chicago

by John Dugan, Time Out Chicago In the near future, GQ readers will be advised that alongside their Hemingway, great bottles of bourbon and bespoke suits, they must have a few great Greg Dulli albums within arm’s reach at all times, or at least, the end of the night.
