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…

Saturnalia – San Francisco Bay Guardian

BY TODD LAVOIE San Francisco Bay Guardian Salvation can come to us in the strangest of places, but it takes a special person to search it out in the sordid, cigarette butt-cluttered back alleys where the daylight never creeps in. While most of us might cower in the darkness, vocalists Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan have each built careers from reveling in it, offering contrasting – but curiously compatible – dissections of life in the shadows. As frontman for the Afghan Whigs and the Twilight…

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…

Saturnalia – NJ.com

A match made in rock heaven – Music – NJ.com The waning of alternative rock’s commercial clout in the late ’90s left a lot of musicians bereft. Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan — who both had records stamped with the premier grunge brand, Sub Pop — lost their influential bands, Dulli’s Afghan Whigs, Lanegan’s Screaming Trees. But by dint of fertile minds and a survivor’s mentality, they have thrived into their early 40s. These two, long kindred spirits, resisted becoming casualties of substances, despite bad…

The Gutter Twins > SundayPaper.com 4 Stars Remember when you were a kid and your parents warned you against hanging out with certain kids—the ones who were no good and would only lead you into trouble? Yeah, well, that’s these guys. The Gutter Twins are Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers and Mark Lanegan from Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age.

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…
