The Whigs

Right Hand on my Heart

The Whigs' main claim to fame: they were the last big thing out of Athens. This song is a really good example of how garage rock can be beautiful even in its simplicity: about 75% of the song is based on one note. It's catchy as hell, I keep getting it stuck in my head, so I figured why not post it up here. This is really the only encounter I've had with them, but it might be enough of a basis for me to buy a ticket to their upcoming 40 watt show. Enjoy.
