By the time the single for “Turn on the Water” was released in 1992, The Afghan Whigs were relatively cemented in the underground alt rock scene and either had or were about to release their third album and second on the then go-to Seattle label for the burgeoning grunge scene: Sub Pop.Read More »The Afghan Whigs | Turn on the Water | 7-inch Single
The Afghan Whigs
The Afghan Whigs is an indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio that formed in 1986. They continue to release new music and tour to this day. The band consists of primary members Greg Dulli, Rick McCollum, and John Curley, though others have been and are in the band.
Mudhoney split in 2001, but reunited briefly in 2006 for a Rhino Records compilation titled Unbreakable: A Retrospective 1990-2006 before disbanding again. They officially returned in 2011 and haven’t stopped since.
The band remained with Sub Pop through their 2017 LP In Spades. Their latest, How Do You Burn? from 2022, breaks from that tradition.

If you’ve been a record collector for any notable length of time, you’ll probably have a few albums in your collection of — well — questionable quality. I’m not talking about ones that are guilty pleasures, or ones that are a little embarrassing to admit you have in your collection. (Though I’m sure those exist as well, but that’s a subject for a future list…) I’m also not talking about ones where it’s just a flat out shity pressing. The terrible condition I’m talking about: the records that are truly beat to hell.Read More »7 Records in Terrible Condition that Will Never Leave My Collection

Last weekend I did something a bit taboo. No, nothing that bad. What I did was this: I took my email inbox, and I cleared it. I archived everything — over 15,000 unread messages. It had just gotten a bit too out of control. Then, this week, I checked ALL my emails, filtered out what I wanted to cover, and pulled some select ones to add to my radio show.Read More »Fense’s Radio Show: May 25, 2012
