As a practicing masochist, the Afghan Whigs’s Greg Dulli uses bad judgment as a matter of artistic principle. For their 1993 release Gentlemen, the Whigs went to the same studio where Big Star recorded Third and emerged with the ’90s most twisted break-up album: the hellish testament of a relationship so mutually disruptive you’d think those involved were participating on a dare. In one of the many instances where Dulli claimed to be getting some pleasure from the pain, he sang, “I get dressed up…

The title says it all, really, and “Bulletproof” warns that “this time we go a little lower”.

This Cincinnati band was several Sub Pop records and many more feverish live dates into a career when its soulful experiments cohered into Gentlemen. By that time, it happened to be 1993, so the songs’ crack guitar-architecture behaved with the expected distorted-post-Nirvana involvement. Yet everything else about singer and songwriter Greg Dulli’s band seemed less literally generic: the cinematic drifts, the actorly immersions, the disregard for metal, the uncanny union with ’60s and ’70s R&B. Black Love, Afghan Whigs’ new album, wisely emphasizes the band’s…

In a world that’s becoming filled with cookie-cutter alternative bands, what’s most appealing about Afghan Whigs is that its dark, seductive sound goes back further than the heyday of Nirvana’s influence.
