My friend John Curley played bass in the dark soul-rock band Afghan Whigs
, the first non-Seattle group signed to Sub Pop records. For more than a decade, the Whigs released consistently stunning albums, concluding with 1965 on Columbia records in 2000. The following year, the group disbanded. Singer Greg Dulli continued with his Twilight Singers
, guitarist Rick McCollum became Moon Maan

I was thrilled to hear that John and the Staggering Statistics have released their full-length debut recording for free online. Link
