Cincinnati music legends the Afghan Whigs return to Bogart’s this weekend on the heels of the release of their brand new album, “How Do You Burn?” Songwriter Greg Dulli continues to mix his garage-rock and R&B influences, this time incorporating synths and expansive vocal textures.

Interpol:A drummer-on-drummer Q&A with Sam Fogarino

We recently spoke about the record, his connections to the ’90s Cincinnati music scene, including the recently defunct Ultrasuede Studio, and his unconventional mix of influences.

Question: Tell me about the Cincinnati music scene when Afghan Whigs were forming.

Answer: There were a bunch of bands that I loved watching. When I first got to town, my roommate played in this band called Dream 286. My friend Janette Pierce Davis played in that band and her boyfriend at the time was my friend Dave Davis who passed away a few years ago. He had a band called Somebody that was great. There was BPA. There was the Wolverton Brothers. There was Red Mass. There was Human Zoo.
