Afghan Whigs: "Miles Iz Ded" (1992)

Short film for The Afghan Whigs' "Miles Iz Ded," the hidden track on their 1992 LP Congregation. The reunited Afghan Whigs perform in San Francisco tonight and tomorrow before heading to Los Angeles where they will play Friday on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" and then two sold-out shows to wrap up this epic tour. Rebirth of the cool, to be certain.


  1. Of the bands that rose to fame in and around the “Teen Spirit” era, the Whigs were among the most interesting.
    Screaming Trees are another.  And those early Mudhoney records still sound delightfully weird.

    1. Greg Dulli of the Whigs had a side project a few years ago with Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees called the Gutter Twins. They put out one LP and one EP of great dark, gritty music. A few years ago their video for Idle Hands was post on Boing Boing…

  2. Was always a big Whigs fan back in the day, and have continued to follow Dulli through his multiple bands through the years. I had the chance to see them in Boston on this last tour, and despite everyone being a little bit wider and moving a little bit slower around the stage, they put on almost as good a show as Ive seen from them through the years.  
    If you have a chance to see a show before the tour ends, this is a really good one to see.

  3. Wow… I must have heard them two nights a week for years at City Club (Detroit) all through the 1990s but never saw the video before.  Interesting to say the least.  I wonder how many other videos out there I missed that are now available on youtube.

  4.  There’s one I haven’t heard in many years.

    So the tour’s wrapping up? I must have missed them. Still, I’ve got tickets to Jonathan Coulton and Rush on consecutive nights. Fitzgeralds is kind of a small venue for Coulton. Great view of Sixth Ward and Downtown from the north bank of White Oak Bayou though.
