The Afghan Whigs cover ‘The Police’

The Afghan Whigs covers "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" by The Police, recorded during their 'Do The Beast Sessions' The Afghan Whigs play next 8/26

The Afghan Whigs have turned in a slow burn cover of The Police’s Ghost in the Machine classic, “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.” The track was recorded during the sessions for the band’s current Sub Pop album Do to the Beast.

The Afghan Whigs will kick off their North American trek with a performance on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” the morning of Monday August 25th. The tour begins the following evening on August 26th with a two-night stand at Doug Fir in Portland, OR. Joining the band on drums for the North American tour will be Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs, Greenhornes). Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, the band’s August 31st show in Boise, ID has now been cancelled.

Earlier this week, Sub Pop also announced The Afghan Whigs’ leader Greg Dulli’s collaboration with author & longtime friend Danny Bland for I Apologize in Advance for the Awful Things I’m Gonna Do. …Awful Things… is a 120-page, full-color, paperback collection of haiku written by Bland and is the first published collection featuring Dulli’s photography, with calligraphy by Exene Cervenka (co-founder of the band X).
