The Afghan Whigs - Debonair [7"]

This 7" by THE AFGHAN WHIGS is one of the things i bought while i was in London in May this year for the Slowdive concert, at a store called Flashback Records. A really nice record store based in Islington, with a cellar full of awesome vinyls. I bought quite a few 7"es there, so you'll be reading more about those on this blog sooner or later. (There's actually another record store there close by called Haggle Vinyl, but that owner was so extremely rude and being a total arrogant asshole, that i walked out of there thinking i must have dreamed it had happened. Never experienced anything like it and it was actually the only record shop in London that i didn't buy anything, despite the fact that i initially wanted to). Alright, back to this single. DEBONAIR is probably the band's best known song, and a pretty fine one as well. That whole Gentlemen album is fantastic of course. The single comes in a nice gatefold sleeve, with a cool "Stax rip-off" logo on the front. On the B-side there's album track My Curse, and non-album track Ready which is a cover of a song by a band called Scrawl. Both songs feature vocals by Marcy Mays, who was the singer for Scrawl.
