I’m Ready – Manchester Music
By Simon Brown
“Powder Burns” pointed the way for Greg Dulli’s return and “I’m Ready“ is another example of his more firebrand sounding rock . Burning along with the grim rattle of shaking guitars and the former Whig’s browbeaten lounge room vocals, it looks as though the Twilight Singers continue to invigorate with their incendiary reinventions. Better still is the Lo Fidelity Allstars Remix, which extracts the twangy guitar and Dulli’s rough sawn soul fuelled vocal lines, themselves assisted by Joseph Arthur. A splintered delight, mixing gravity defying melodies and quickfire guitars, “I’m Ready” most probably gives us a Robert Palmer for the 21st Century – only much cooler – and of course not dead.
