I had the great fortune to interview Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs last month for PopMatters. I don’t conduct interviews very often, but as a Whigs fan since 1994, I jumped at the chance. It came a difficult time for Dulli and everyone in the Whigs/Twilight Singers extended family–it’s explained in the article–so I really appreciate his time and generosity.
You can read the interview here.
You’ll notice an extended discussion of Prince during which I bring up the relationship between Prince’s “Housequake” beat and the Afghan Whigs’ “Going to Town.” Here, then, for your consideration:
This version of “Going to Town” drops in a bit of “Le Grind” from Prince’s The Black Album courtesy of Shawn Smith.
