On the one hand, In Spades is as quintessentially Afghan Whigs as anything the group has ever done – fulfilling its original mandate to explore the missing link between howling Midwestern punk like Die Kreuzen and Hüsker Dü, The Temptations’ psychedelic soul symphonies, and the expansive hard-rock tapestries of Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the same time, this new record continues to push beyond anything in the Whigs’ previous repertoire – another trademark, along with the explosive group dynamic captured on the recording.
Boxset numbered slipcase includes ‘Champion Versions’ EP (red 12”), ‘The Patty Patty Sound’ EP (double yellow 12”) and ‘Los Amigos Del Beta Bandidos’ EP (blue 12”). CD included.
