The Age Interviews Mark Lanegan

The Age: From the Gutter to the Bars MARK Lanegan has one of the most in-demand voices in music.

Belle and Sebastian singer Isobel Campbell, Melissa Auf der Maur and Martina Topley Bird are some of the female singers who have weaved their voices with his deep caramel baritone. His most recent muse has been his old friend…

Greg Dulli Faster Louder Interview

Greg Dulli interview at FasterLouder.com.au “Sometimes I forget that I was in another band,” says Greg Dulli, discussing the legacy of his years as the frontman for The Afghan Whigs. The band released a string of albums through the ‘90s that earned Dulli a reputation as a dark and complex character. The Ohio band successfully melded rock, soul and RnB at a time when grunge was king. Since their breakup in 2001, Dulli has continued to explore the shadows of the soul in various guises….

Saturnalia Makes Spin’s Best of 2008

The 40 Best Albums of 2008 | Spin Magazine Online No. 32 – The Gutter Twins Saturnalia No big surprise that the long-awaited collaboration between ’90s-vintage gloom kings Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli wasn’t exactly the feel-good hit of the year. But the former’s narcoleptic, baritone moan and the latter’s mischievous, soulful wail give these mid-tempo dirges, awash in revelations and Revelation, a touch of grace that recalls their classic work without repeating it. The most upbeat moment: the synthy “Idle Hands,” in which the…

The Gutter Twins Darken Brooklyn for a Night

NYU Local Twins in the Lemmon and Matthau sense, The Gutter Twins are longtime buddies Mark Lanegan (of Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age fame) and Greg Dulli (of Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers). ‘90s rock fans will eat this stuff up: an indie act with purebred Seattle grunge pedigree and an unlikely pairing that works because it operates in stark contrasts, rocking out with hard-hitting fuzz one moment, hushing down to ethereal shimmer the next. Lanegan possesses the voice of God,…

The Gutter Twins darken the TLA tonight

The Delaware County Daily Times By Michael Christopher, Times Music Columnist The teaming of Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan is a music lover’s dream: Two alternative rock icons, both with a twisted and dark psyche, getting together to see what trouble they can get into. Initially, it was to dabble in each other’s projects — a guest spot here, a backing vocal there. But earlier this year, the two banded together for a full length under the oh-so-appropriate moniker The Gutter Twins. The result, “Saturnalia,”…

Twin Peaks

philadelphia weekly online by Jeffrey Barg Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan rise from the ashes of the ’90s. Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are survivors. Few heavy alt–rock bands emerged standing after the ’90s—the Afghan Whigs and Screaming Trees included. But Dulli and Lanegan, those bands’ respective erstwhile frontmen, have combined forces in the Gutter Twins to salvage the loud guitars and melodic songwriting, while mixing in the doom and gloom of eight years’ worth of the Bush presidency. ”It’s a bit slower, a bit…

Gonzalez on Gutter Twins

From Jose Gonzalez’s interview with New York Magazine The Gutter Twins just released a cover of “Down the Line.” What did you think of it? I love it. I thought it was great, and I got to meet them in Canada at a festival, and they were really nice. I got to see them live and Greg Dulli was telling me, “Yeah, it is about time someone else covered one of your songs.” There have been a couple of other artists that have done it…

Greg Dulli Comes Full Circle

Greg Dulli Comes Full Circle With Gutter Twins and His Return to Sub Pop – Spinner.com by Steve Baltin Filed under: Spinner Interview Greg Dulli has experienced indie hero worship before — most famously when the Afghan Whigs’ brilliant 1993 release ‘Gentlemen’ garnered the band both remarkable reviews and a major cult audience. But now 15 years older, Dulli is savoring the success of his current project, the Gutter Twins. A partnership with fellow indie stalwart Mark Lanegan, the album brought Dulli back to play…

Rock Bottom | Jerusalem Post

Rock Bottom | Music | Jerusalem Post In one of my favorite scenes from the life-altering film Fight Club, Tyler Durden and the narrator look at a photo of a model of which Tyler comments, “self-improvement is masturbation, self-destruction on the other hand…” Listening to The Gutter Twins’ first album Saturnalia one thing is certain: they are not a couple of masturbators. The album is dark, depressing, cleansing and totally embodies the sex, drugs and violence so elemental when channeling the true spirit of rock…
