The Twilight Singers performed an acoustic set on The Big Room (or, as Greg suggested, “The Bigger Than Your Office Room”) for CD101 in Columbus today.
Dulli also answered a few questions sent in from listeners. The questions and abbreviated answers were:
Jill in Fairfield – What do you get the most pleasure of, being a musician?
“It’s perk city”
Anthony – What’s the band’s position on downloading and bottlegging?
“If you want some apples, go up and make a deal with the apple tree owner.”
“Unless it’s Cheap Trick at Budokan, I don’t need to hear it all over again.”
Michael – Will the Reds contend for a playoff position this year?
Tammy – Blackberry and Black Love feel like a movie script. Were you influenced by Demme, or is this style a holdover from the Whigs? How much of your life is reflected in your music?
“Unfortunately most of it. (joking)”
“Having a beginning, middle, and an end is kind of important to me.”
Other tidbits – Gutter Twins record almost finished. Covers album almost finished. First time the band has gigged acoustic.
Hearing the songs acoustic was a nice change. The arrangements were shifted to highlight the subtleties in the songs. Fantastic.
