The Gutter Twins, Komedia, Brighton

The Independent 4/5 Stars A satanic howl from the Gutters Reviewed by Fiona Sturges They could be secondary schoolteachers. If you saw them setting up for an afternoon’s busking you would probably hold on to your change, assuming a dreary MOR rock band. But looks can be deceiving. The two men before us – the ex-Screaming Trees singer and sometime Queens of the Stone Age contributor Mark Lanegan, and Greg Dulli, formerly of the Afghan Whigs – are low-key legends in the realms of American…

Night & Day: In search of transcendence

The Prague Post Online By Darrell Jónsson In 2007, when Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan’s long-awaited collaboration Saturnalia was released (on Sub Pop records), expectations were extremely high — and no one was disappointed. Following Lanegan’s Screaming Trees and Dulli’s Afghan Whigs, critics and fans alike were primed for their collaboration as the Gutter Twins. After their former groups disbanded in the late ’90s, both artists pursued musical choices and projects that served their musical evolution well. For Lanegan, this included a stint with California…

Gutter Twins – Rescue Rooms Review

Thisisnottingham.co.uk It’s not every day you come face to face with the Prince of Darkness. Emerging from the gloom of the near-dark stage, Mark Lanegan looks gaunt; battered by years of hard-living and hard-rocking. He’s quite simply mesmerising: eyes closed throughout, swaying gently as he clutches the microphone stand. As one half of The Gutter Twins, his job is to rasp out gnarled vocals, while Greg Dulli blasts the audience with frenzied guitars and howling harmonies. With a blistering backing band (I’ve never seen drums…

Double trouble with The Gutter Twins

Double trouble with The Gutter Twins | Metro.co.uk The formidable pairing of US vocalists Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs, The Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age) as The Gutter Twins resembles a powerful reincarnation. The slow-burning Gothic blues of their debut album, Saturnalia, has marked both men’s return to the seminal grunge label Sub Pop and further sharpened their creative juices. Dulli, the more loquacious of the duo, certainly sounds like he’s relishing the experience as they approach their…

Turn It Up – Lollapalooza Review

Chicago Tribune | Blog Before the festival began, it was a toss-up between the Kills (the spectral co-ed duo who played Friday) and Gutter Twins, who are up now, for the band least-suited to playing on a sun-smacked stage in the middle of the afternoon. The Twins — former Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli and former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan –– are nocturnal animals, and their music is well-suited for post-midnight activities, not all of them appropriate for “G-rated” audiences. But the Twins provide…

Ifans, Gutter Twins Controversy

CELEBRIFI [Welsh actor] Rhys Ifans is causing an outrage in the UK over recent comments on a radio interview for Radio Q. When asked to comment on a track by the band The Gutter Twins (a musical collaboration between artists Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan), Ifans was quoted as saying: “It’s kind of like being date raped, which I liked.”

The biggest Looza

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Jim DeRogatis The Gutter Twins It takes a truly extraordinary band to transform a sunny Saturday in the park into the early-morning hours at a derelict bar on Bourbon Street or an S&M club on the Lower East Side, but then Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are two of the most extraordinary singers to emerge from the alternative era. The former leaders of, respectively, the Afghan Whigs and the Screaming Trees set a high standard that other veterans of the first Lollapalooza…

Dulli in Kerrang

There’s a short Q & A with Greg Dulli in the current issue of Kerrang! UK. Transcript below: Greg Dulli The Gutter Twins My Favourite Film “It’s still gotta be Jaws, man. More recently, I loved The Diving Bell And The Butterfly. It’s remarkable on many levels: it showed a new way of making a movie, the story was compelling and it transported me. If you’re in any way a self-pitying person, you should watch that film and realise how hard another person had it.”…

Gutter Twins in LVRJ.com’s 2008 Best of (So Far)

SOUNDING OFF: This year proving good for your ears With the year half over, it’s time to take stock of the best of albums of ’08 thus far. Here are my current favorites: The Gutter Twins, “Saturnalia”: A mix of bourbon and, well, lots more bourbon, this pairing of the dead-voiced Mark Lanegan and the whiskeyed come-ons of Greg Dulli is like a pox on sobriety. Two of rock’s best, most distinctive vocalists hiss and moan at one another over a bed of serpentine electronics…

Gutter Twins Not Looking Past Album, Tour

Billboard.com With their first album out, 45 shows behind them and another 50 or so coming up, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are pondering the future of their joint project, the Gutter Twins. And theyve come up with … well, no discernible conclusions. “I think well do it again,” Dulli tells Billboard.com. “I dont know when. I dont know if itll be the next record that we do; it may, it may not. Right now were just kind of in it. We still have 50…
