Twilight Singers Bring Sultry Sounds to Warsaw
by Jonny Leather.
1993’s Afghan Whigs album Gentleman could very well be the most underrated album of the ’90s, but it was able to gain front man Greg Dulli a legion of followers who will forever hang onto his every word. Now, 12 years later, Dulli has once again released an overlooked masterpeice, this time with his latest group, Twilight Singers. On Thursday last week, Warsaw played host to the Twilight Singers final show of their United States tour. The stage was set with candles and incense, and Dulli approached his fans with a cigarette, a cup of beer, and an unpenetratable display of confidence and swagger that can only be gained through a long history of captivating performances…
Besides the typical Twilight Singers standards from past and present, the set included a wide array of covers, including “Amazing Grace,” Echo and the Bunnymen’s “Killing Moon,” and TV on the Radio’s “Playhouses.” And if that’s not enough,Mark Lanegan, of Screaming Trees fame, joined the Twilight Singers for a few of songs, for a show that was every bit as good as it promised to be.
