Reissued 9/8/17, originally released 1992
Founded in Cincinnati, OH in 1988, The AFGHAN WHIGS have long stood out from their peers, with a savage, rapturous blend of hard rock, classic soul, and frontman Greg Dulli's searing angst and obsessions. Both Congregation and Up In It have been out of print on the format for several years and Uptown Avondale has never been available in the U.S. until now. 1992's Congregation, The Afghan WHIGS' breakthrough third album, finds the band's soul and psychedelic influences shining through like never before, elements which would help shape their sound for years to come. Congregation has been out of print on vinyl since it's original pressing sold out many years ago.
