I’m Ready – Gigwise
by Chris Reynolds
Straight from the pounding drum intro it’s clear The Twilight Singers have concocted a thoroughly sleazy sounding single. This track would be happy festering around in the dirt at the bottom of a beggars soiled mattress but this is the beauty to the track. From the seedy down tuned bass to the vocal effects on Greg Dulli’s voice it has everything to add that feel and yet retain a hook in the chorus. The fact that the recording process of the album ‘Powder Burns’ was quite literally ripped through by Hurricane Katrina perhaps explains the downbeat and desolate nature of the song. It’s a stripped back, up front offering which slides into the gutter without a single care in the world and ends up a more powerful track because of this.
