About:

The Afghan Whigs were a soul-influenced American punk/rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio. While they achieved moderate success in the 1990s -- Rolling Stone described the band as spending "the bulk of their career on the brink of stardom" -- they "never quite broke beyond a substantial legion of devotees enamored of their thinly veiled sleaze."
