The Devil’s Own

Rip It Up by Scott McLennan The annotated biological etching of a two-headed baby on the sleeve of The Gutter Twins’ debut album sums up with macabre humour the twisted bond at the heart of Saturnalia. The much-mooted project between former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and The Twilight Singers’ musical mastermind Greg Dulli, Saturnalia finds the gifted reprobates unleashing an incredible collection of Gothic blues and haunted rock. Greg laughs when it’s suggested the dissected baby image is an apt depiction of the pair’s…

The Gutter Twins, Glasgow – Review

The Independent By David Pollock A certain irony, you might imagine, informed the decision by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to refer to themselves as the Glimmer Twins. Whatever the glimmer of redemption they saw within themselves was, the term was first adopted in the mid-Seventies when their prodigious hedonism was still in cruise control. There’s surely no way the Gutter Twins’ name isn’t a reverent homage to Mick ‘n’ Keef, albeit one which cuts out the irony and goes straight to the dark heart…

Pitchfork Feature: Interview: The Gutter Twins

Pitchfork Feature: Interview: The Gutter Twins Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan are two of the most intimidating dudes in rock’n’roll, their lengthy discographies littered with bad drugs, bad women, and the violence (physical, emotional, and spiritual) that surrounds these bad situations. As the frontmen for the Afghan Whigs and the Screaming Trees, respectively, they spent the mid-1980s through the late 1990s on the fringes of grunge and alt-rock, building up loyal followings among those searching for something just a little more evil. When those bands…

Live Review: The Gutter Twins, Los Angeles

Live Review: The Gutter Twins, Great Northern – Avalon – Los Angeles, CA – ARTISTdirect News Though it started out as a joke when the affable, and mostly facetious, Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers frontman, Greg Dulli, told a journalist that he and former Screaming Trees singer, Mark Lanegan, were going to start a band, they’re the ones who are laughing (maybe even cackling) now. So, here’s the punchline: The Gutter Twins. Get it? Climbing out of the bowels of their ’90s indie-rock star trauma,…

Twins climb out of the gutter to reach for stars

Independent.ie The Gutter Twins The Ambassador, Dublin You don’t need to be au fait with the torrid biographies of Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli to know they’ve been in the wars. It’s written on their scarred, time-furrowed faces. Drug addiction, band implosions, tumultuous shifts in the musical topography — far from bringing these grunge warhorses to their knees, such travails have only made them stronger. Both are now in their mid 40s, an age when most grunge veterans are happy to luxuriate in old glories….

Saturnalia – Hofstra Chronicle

The Gutter Twins’ latest album was worth the wait By Tim Lee Hailed initially, albeit by themselves, as the “Satanic Everly Brothers,” the Gutter Twins finally delivered their long-awaited full length, “Saturnalia.” The group pairs the duo of Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age) in an early 90s grunge super group, or wet dream. Luckily or not, depending upon one’s sensibility, both artists have matured lyrically and musically leading up to the record. With a…

Sixty Seconds

Colorado Springs Independent Indy: Similar to the fateful day when chocolate deliciously mixed with peanut butter, take us through how you (The Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees/Queens of the Stone Age) came together to record the recently released debut Saturnalia. GD: Mark and I were friends first, and the first songs that we played together were sung on my front porch in Los Angeles. So Mark conceived The Gutter Twins in his own mind. Indy: The song that is seriously kicking our…

Dulli And Lanegan Are Total Music BFFs

Chartattack.com The Gutter Twins sound like every Gen-Xer’s wet dream: Two perennial ’90s favourites, Screaming Trees’ Mark Lanegan and The Afghan Whigs’ Greg Dulli, coming together to create a project to provide an intersection between northwestern grunge and midwestern college rock while recalling the late ’80s-early ’90s heydays of both — and, of course, released on Sub Pop. But while most of those things happen to be true about The Gutter Twins and their recently released Saturnalia full-length debut, Lanegan and Dulli’s brainchild isn’t nearly…
