The Afghan Whigs - Uptown Avondale

Uptown Avondale is an EP by the band The Afghan Whigs.

It bears the Sub Pop catalog number SPCD 53/215 and is representative of the Cincinnati band's soul influences.

The EP contains covers of 4 classic Stax/Motown-era tracks:- Band of Gold, which was made famous by Freda Payne - True Love Travels On A Gravel Road, an Acuff/Rose composition recorded by Elvis and Percy Sledge among others - Come See About Me, a Holland/Dozier/Holland song that was a hit for The Supremes - Beware, by the Rev.

Al GreenIt also contains a stark, robotic remix of the Whigs song "Milez Is Dead" as a hidden track - the original was itself a sinister funk-tinged hidden track on the 1992 album Congregation.

This version takes the song and gives it a bit of a menacing dancefloor tweak, complete with a looped drum track (same bed as The Stone Roses' "Fools Gold", and dozens of other tracks from the same timeframe) and some heavy effects on the vocals and guitars.

Cue track #4 to 4:28 for the beginning of "Milez Is Dead"'s remix, which the band playfully referred to as "Rebirth Of The Cool".
