Gutter Twins bring Dulli to hometown

The Enquirer – Gutter Twins bring Dulli to hometown Greg Dulli is on the phone from Portland, Ore., a month into his tour for his new project, the Gutter Twins. Dulli, never known as a politically correct kind of guy, is bemoaning he was booked in a nonsmoking hotel. “They charge a $150 cleaning bill if they smell anything,” he says. “I’m going on an incense and Lysol search.” It is typical Dulli, who has always had a gonzo, anti-hero rock reputation since the days…

Dynamic performance combines recycled material with new

The Badger Herald/a> by Brett Myers Fresh off the release of their debut album Saturnalia a week ago, the Gutter Twins have hit the road to try out their material for the public. Following sold-out warm-up gigs in New York and San Francisco, the Gutter Twins’ latest stop was a Sunday night performance for an at-capacity crowd at the High Noon Saloon. The twins whom the band’s name refers to are grunge-era survivors Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli. Accompanied by a four-piece band, the duo…

Chicago ’08 Review

chicagotribune.com Sharing checkered histories and predatory voices, Gutter Twins Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are both accustomed to darkness. So it was no surprise that the former Afghan Whigs leader and ex-Screaming Trees frontman, respectively, strolled onto a dimly lit Metro stage at 1:30 a.m. early Saturday morning. The vampiric hour befit the 90 minutes of otherworldly music that followed. Streaked with religious references and soulful undercurrents, the duo’s collaborative songs sought salvation as they confronted demons, sickness and desires. Tempos lurched and crawled; spiritual…

A Dark Night With the Gutter Twins

Seattlest: We Went Try as they might Tuesday, Great Northern couldn’t bring much levity to a heavy night at the Showbox. Their fuzzy, bordering-on-pop sound was like the prologue of a bad dream—when you know something bad’s coming, but for the moment, things are truly swell. In this case, badness (in the coolest sense of the word) was the looming presence of Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli: The Gutter Twins. While the place was still pretty well-lit, Rachel Stolte’s beautiful, rich voice swirled around the…

From down in the dark: The Gutter Twins step into the light

Drowned in Sound by Dave Kerr Are you just up? “Nah, I’ve been up for a while.” DiS fills another agonising silence by suggesting Mark Lanegan’s monosyllabic reticence might be down to something other than an indifferent disposition. Consciously or not, his distance puts the kibosh on the zillionth attempt to demystify some small part of his growling, gothic lexicon. The ‘Fire and Ice’ analogy torn straight out of a James Ellroy novel by Lanegan’s tag team buddy Greg Dulli to describe the bluesy duo’s…

Two Princes

Portland Mercury The Original Sin of the Gutter Twins by Ezra Ace Caraeff It’s dirty. The idea of combining the heavily tattooed, sullen skulk of Mark Lanegan—he of ex-Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age fame—alongside the glutinous howl of Greg Dulli—he of Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers fame—is just plain wrong. But, thankfully, there is no law against bringing together these two mammoth forces of sinfulness on the same stage, the same record, and the same band. Say hello to the Gutter Twins….

Alt-rock vets join forces as Gutter Twins

Reuters/Billboard By Cortney Harding NEW YORK (Billboard) – For a duo who refer to themselves as the “Satanic Everly Brothers,” Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are rather polite, friendly fellows. Over lunch at an Italian restaurant in New York, they chatted easily about favorite TV shows (Lanegan is partial to AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Dulli is obsessed with “Lost”) and gamely retold the story of how an offhand comment to a writer finally compelled them to finish and release the long-gestating Gutter Twins record. That album,…

Electric Cafe Interview

Read the full, very well formatted article at Blacklodges.com Not just in context of the album but also you personally, what is your relationship towards art and commerce? Greg: Well, it takes money to make art, so to engage in commerce to continue making your art is absolutely necessary. At the same time we’re living in a time where short cuts are taken and liberties are taken by people to obtain music, so you know, we’re sort of in the wild west again, in my…

Between the Gutters

Citybeat.com BY Brian Baker Over the past four years, nearly every conversation with former Afghan Whigs/current Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli has invariably included some fleeting reference to The Gutter Twins. The rotating collective with Dulli and former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan at its swirling core has been a project that both have been committed to but only in concentrated bursts of activity dictated by each artist’s demanding schedule. That effort has finally paid off with the release of Saturnalia, The Gutter Twins’ darkly…

Forged in the Shadows

Gutter Twins: Pair forged in the shadows is thriving in the dark By TIM APPELO The Gutter Twins are the most hotly anticipated antihero rock act of the moment, not just in Seattle, but especially here, since the gloomy duo of former L.A. roommates have deep roots in our scene. Ellensburg-born Mark Lanegan’s stygian rasp made Screaming Trees almost famous at the dawn of grunge — “I Nearly Lost You” remains the best-sung tune on the “Singles” soundtrack — and Greg Dulli’s comparably semi-renowned Afghan…
