Like a grunge version of Zelig, former Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli has worked with everyone from Dave Grohl and Mark Lanegan to Lo-Fi Allstars.
His eclectic background comes to the fore on an album veering from the knowing Steely Dan harmonies of Esta Noche to a darker, more narcotic take on The Thrills with the smokey No 9.
It’s all handled with a veteran’s unhurried expertise. It won’t change Greg’s outsider status, as he continues to fascinate from the margins.
