The Afghan Whigs "Gentlemen" (demo)

The Afghan Whigs "Gentlemen" (demo)
Cincinnati-bred alt-rock figures the Afghan Whigs are celebrating their much-loved 1993 album Gentlemen with a 21st anniversary reissue later this month, but the group have chivalrously unveiled a slightly less refined demo of the title track ahead of time.

The early version really does play true to what would pop up on the LP proper, with a rawer drum sound being one of the key differences. Greg Dulli still seethes and seduces with his dissemination on a dragged-out, rocky relationship.

Give "Gentlemen" your attention, please, and stream the song down below via Stereogum. Gentlemen at 21, meanwhile, arrives October 28 through Rhino.
