For those who needed to see it before they believed it, The Afghan Whigs are officially back. The band appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, performing the old-school Soul cover "See and Don't See" that was released as a free download recently. The band also played "I'm Her Slave," the first full song off of their second album for Sub Pop, 1992's Congregation.
"Slave" was posted as a "web exclusive" clip. Check it out below. We'll add the other tune when it's available.
The Whigs play their first concert in 13 years tonight at a sold-out Bowery Ballroom in New York City.
Check back later this week for an exclusive review of the show.
UPDATE: Here's last night's full episode from Hulu. You have to watch a ton of commercials but the Whigs play at the 37 minute mark. They sound better on this one (?uestlove plays with them as well). And they look fantastic throughout! Dig Greg Dulli performing without an instrument.
