The Afghan Whigs recorded UP IN IT, their second album, in 1990 on Seattle's soon-to-be influential independent label, Sub Pop. The album was released with two different track listings--one including the song "Now We Can Begin," the other replacing that track with "Hey Cuz" and featuring three songs from the Whigs' debut album, BIG TOP HALLOWEEN. Set to a dense musical backing--led by Rick McCollum's searing guitar--the album is a collection of travelogues through the murky waters of singer Greg Dulli's twisted mind.
The standout track is "I Know Your Little Secret," which opens on a plaintive note before using the cracked steps of Dulli's ravaged voice to build itself into an insistent and genuinely threatening piece of rock & roll. While UP IN IT is perhaps not the most cohesive version of Dulli and Co.'s vision, it is a lot more emotionally credible than anything else previously associated with Sub Pop. The record is a clearly marked signpost in the Whigs' simultaneous trips to the bottom of the bottle and to the lowest possible plateau of relations between men and women.
