Dillon Covers Whigs?

Date: 11.18.05
E-Mail Entry

From Jerome Dillon's recent interview:

Also, my friend Greg Dulli had expressed interest in wanting to be involved in the record [-- nearLY]. So I picked an old Afghan Whigs song that I was a fan of, one of his songs. We ended up redoing that as a cover and I tried to turn it into a torch song without it sounding like “Endless Love”. You know, a terrible duet between two people that are shitting on each other musically.

Update from

The debut record from Jerome's solo-project, [nearLY : reminder], will be released by KUFALA recordings/LA COSA NOSTRA records online and in independent retail stores on December 20th.

The Whigs track covered is "Step Into the Light."
