Music Review: The Gutter Twins – Saturnalia By Kevin Eagan Before you even open the disc or listen to a single second of the album, The Gutter Twins’ debut release Saturnalia speaks to you through its striking album cover. The cover is a photo showing classic urban prairie, an abandoned lot between two shotgun houses, where the greenery only grows as weeds between the cracks of a neglected sidewalk and life seems to have gone underground. Two chairs sit in the center of the photo,…

The Gutter Twins Live at First Avenue Review

My Old Kentucky Blog reviews the Gutter Twins in Minneapolis …by far the juiciest plum of the night was Saturnalia’s quiet finale, Front Street. Taking a page from the crooners of yesteryear (or Lou Reed circa Berlin) Dulli set aside his guitar and performed the majority of the song perched on a barstool at the front of the stage. For the next eight minutes, Dulli, rockstar, was replaced by Dulli, random lecherous guy you might find yourself sitting next to in any bar, as he…

Saturnalia – allmusic

allmusic ((( Saturnalia > Review ))) The Gutter Twins’ first full-length record may not have shown up until early 2008, but Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan had been working together since the early part of the millennium, Dulli with Lanegan on his solo work and Lanegan with Dulli’s group the Twilight Singers, even touring as part of the band and showing up twice on the 2006 EP A Stitch in Time. It therefore makes sense that much of Saturnalia sounds quite similar to the Twilight…

Saturnalia – Yahoo! Music

Yahoo! Music 7/10 Are The Gutter Twins the most dysfunctional rock duo going? Possibly – it’s certainly part of the dark allure of a group featuring Greg Dulli (Afghan Wigs) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees/QOTSA). Even though most drug habits are as tedious as they are dangerous, in this case it’s quite pertinent to this lush and epic debut album. In most other universes the pair would have collaborated years earlier given that they met at a party in 1989 and then even shared a…

Saturnalia – Dusted

Dusted Reviews – The Gutter Twins There are few surprises on the debut album from the Gutter Twins, ’90s renaissance rockers Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees and Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs. As was the case with each of their previous bands, the songwriting on this record sits upon a dark throne through which themes like dysfunctional love, personal tragedy, and self-doubt are exhaustively considered. Such grim lyrics and accordantly moody instrumentation have long been the preferred tools of these two eminently troubled…

Saturnalia – Blender

The Gutter Twins : Saturnalia Review on Blender :: The Ultimate Guide to Music and More Brothers from another mother can’t escape their sinning ways Reviewed by Mark Yarm Over the past 20 years, grunge-era survivors Greg Dulli, former frontman for the soul-inflected Afghan Whigs, and Mark Lanegan, raspy baritone for late psychedelic rockers the Screaming Trees, have recorded their share of songs about decadence and despair. United, they make for a compelling team of antiheroes: Gutter Twins powers activate! Shape of … an inveterate…

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…

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…

Saturnalia – The Badger Herald

The Badger Herald – Grunge era singers explore dark human psyche in ‘Saturnalia’ When members of two failed bands of even the smallest notoriety combine forces, all too often they’re labeled a “supergroup” and set up to meet impossible standards. This cycle seems to be repeating itself with the Gutter Twins, a collaboration between the frontmen of the grunge-era bands the Screaming Trees and the Afghan Whigs. While their contemporaries seemed to find instant success in the early ’90s, Mark Lanegan’s Screaming Trees and Greg…

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…
