1965 is the name of their sixth and final album originally released in 1998....a really sexy, white rock record, one that hit you at loin level then started crawling and spreading through your heart, soul, body and mind! (NME)

There's a lot of balcony romancing, angst, woman-done-me-wrong self-pity and heavy metal sexual fantasy but surprisingly little honest, horny, unhung-up celebration of sexualit in this album. The Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli has wrestled with this problem half his career - on 'Gentlemen', he was full of ironic self-loathing, this being the PC age. On 'Black Love' he was down in the dumps but with '1965' he's finally come up with an unabashedly sexual record that reconciles lust for women with respect for women, gets it on without resorting to strutting machismo. The sex on '1965' is on a fuck-me-fuck-you basis. "Take me, taste me... anything for a lover", he croons on 'John The Baptist'.
White American boys aren't supposed to make records like this in 1998. '1965' is a triumph against the grain of post-grunge. (
Its cover photograph shows astronaut Ed White on the first American space walk as part of the Gemini 4 flight which took place in, 1965. This edition, includes 7 bonus tracks and an 8 page booklet.
