NYC Review – NYPress.com

New York’s Premier Alternative Newspaper After a pretty lame applause from the crowd, Greg Dulli emerged to the stage. Smoking his hundredth cigarette of the night, the Gutter Twins co-frontman quickly confronted the crowd as to why the rest of the band remained hidden in the shadows on the side of the stage. Saying something like “We walk off stage, 5 people clap, and we’re supposed to come back out and play more songs,” he criticized the crowd for their incredibly weak call for an…

Many peaks at Gutter Twins show

Many peaks at Gutter Twins show – BostonHerald.com by Jed Gottlieb Imagine little Mark Lanegan scribbling a fifth-grade paper on what he wants to be when he grows up. Other boys are aspiring firefighters and astronauts; Lanegan’s designing a destiny of dingy clubs and dark rock ’n’ roll. The other kids probably teased him until he belted out a few bars with his Jack Daniels-and-Lucky Strike vocal cords. Maybe Lanegan could have fought fate and tried another career path, but a teeming Paradise was glad…

Gutter Twins play out their hearts of darkness

At Paradise, the Gutter Twins play out their hearts of darkness – The Boston Globe By Sarah Rodman With the precise distances unknown, we’re going to guess that the gutter is closer to hell than it is to heaven. Or maybe it’s just the intersection between the two. The Gutter Twins With Great Northern At: Paradise Rock Club, Tuesday night. more stories like this * Critics’ picks – pop music * Rock * Hooray for Earth * It certainly sounds that way on “Saturnalia,” the…

Superstar Duos Debut

East Bay Express …In the case of the Gutter Twins, Lanegan and Dulli, both veterans that got their start in the ’90s alt-rock scene, are Noise Pop virgins. The collaboration began with a rumor, when an Italian journalist asked Lanegan about a project with his longtime friend. On the spot, Lanegan played along, and penned them the Gutter Twins. The name (and idea) stuck. The moniker is rather appropriate given the singers’ penchant for wrist-cutting melodrama. Lanegan’s gravely voice, like a built-in sorrow instrument, could…

From the Gutter to the stage

PopMatters by Glenn Gamboa Newsday (MCT) For a couple of guys best known for dark, intensely brooding rock, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan certainly do a lot of joking around. In fact, their new band The Gutter Twins began as a joke. “We had worked together before – played on each other’s records, played in each other’s bands,” explains Lanegan, staring down at his hands. “It was an offhand comment to an Italian journalist that sort of took on a life of its own, so…

Concert Review: Toronto 3/14/08

CANOE — JAM! Music By JASON MacNEIL TORONTO – If The Gutter Twins intend on going to hell, they better have room in their hand baskets for their fans. Not to be confused with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Steven Tyler (The Toxic Twins) or The Stones’ Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (The Glimmer Twins), the duo of former Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli and former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan are The Gutter Twins. And for 90 minutes early Friday night at Toronto’s The Mod…

village voice > Gutter Twins (the Extended Yin/Yang Remix)

village voice > blogs > Sound of the City > Interview: Gutter Twins (the Extended Yin/Yang Remix) A few minutes before heading to this interview, I was told by a colleague that Mark Lanegan had once told him he was illiterate, and was learning to read on tour. Just to fuck with him. “So, good luck,” were his final parting words. We did the interview at the Bowery Ballroom for the print version of this fine here publication, as they were prepping what would be…

EYE WEEKLY – The Gutter Twins

EYE WEEKLY – The Gutter Twins BY Stuart Berman The Gutter Twins is the latest project from two guys hardly lacking for extracurricular activities: former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, now leader of R&B-noir ensemble The Twilight Singers and a successful bar proprietor; and former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan, who, on top of his own solo career, moonlights with everyone from ex-Belle and Sebastian siren Isobel Campbell to Queens of the Stone Age. But an official union between these two black-lunged belters — both…

Gutter Twins Unite

village voice > by Michael D. Ayers There were a few phrases I promised myself I wouldn’t utter when sitting three feet from Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan, two of ’90s alt-rock’s most worshipped frontmen. Alt-rock, for example. Flannel shirts. Heroin. Reunions. I succeeded in avoiding those first three. But in a fit of stammering, passive-aggressive non-rage, I let it slip: “With everyone hopping on the reunion bandwagon, you guys seem to keep pushing forward.” Lanegan, who was the life of the consistently ignored garage/grunge…

CiN Weekly – The Gutter Twins

CiN Weekly – The Gutter Twins Welcome to Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan’s dark world One image is a shoddy X-ray of conjoined twins. Another is a snapshot of a desolate neighborhood. And another is a sinister portrait of Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan. Together they make up the art for The Gutter Twins’ new album, Saturnalia. It’s the debut disc produced by Dulli and Lanegan, arresting frontmen of now-defunct alt-rock bands The Afghan Whigs and Screaming Trees, respectively. It marks their willingness to plunge…
