Order The Afghan Whigs' 20th Anniversary Black Love Reissue

Last Story Best Album

The Last Story has named Blackberry Belle its top album for 2003. Excerpt: Blackberry Belle has something kids like Justin Timberlake just donít haveóand thatís a pair of balls the size of an elephantís genitalia. Timberlake is obviously petrified of failure and is spoon-feeding the public what the studios advise him to peddle. Dulliís only barometer is his soul and passion. If he fails, he failsóbut at least itís something worth failing for, my friends.

Blackberry Japan

The Twilight Singers’ Blackberry Belle will see a Japanese release on December 17, via the Teichiku/Imperial Records International label. The Japanese pressing will include the song “Wicked,” which was previously only available as a 7″ promo single from DIW magazine. No word yet on if the track will be massaged into the running order, or simply tacked onto the end (like most exclusive track pressings).

It Wasn’t Me!

Summer’s Kiss made press this week, unfortunately not in the most appropriate manner. In an overwhelmingly positive tease for the San Francisco show, East Bay Express included the following passage (ellipses mine): A recent weekend stand in Chicago ignited a firestorm of righteous rage, engulfing incensed critics like the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot … and fansite message-board jockeys alike (“a pretty dreadful show — one of the worst I have ever seen,” ranted SummersKiss.com). Don’t get me wrong, several people in the forum expressed personal…

Dulli on New Lanegan EP

Mark Lanegan’s new EP “Here Comes that Weird Chill” is set to be released next Tuesday (Dec 9) on Beggar’s Banquet. Twilight Singer Greg Dulli provides backing vocals on the track “Methamphetamine Blues.” Lanegan is the ex-vocalist for 90s rockers The Screaming Trees and is a member of the Queens of the Stone Age. His next full length album, “Bubblegum,” is due out in the spring. Lanegan sang lead vocals on the track “Number 9” from the Twilight Singers album “Blackberry Belle.” In addition to…

Top Indies of 2003

It’s that time of year again. Time to read (and write) those end of the year lists. Largehearted boy’s “Top 11 Albums” list includes The Twilight Singers’ Blackberry Belle in the number 8 spot. Here’s what he had to say: 8. Blackberry Belle, Twilight Singers – Greg Dulli returns with his second Twilight Singers album and focuses on songwriting while bringing in experienced session men to handle the musical load. The resulting album makes me fondly remember the Afghan Whigs, but look forward to Dulli’s…

Missed Connection in Chi-Town

Always willing to help out, here’s a post from the Chicago Reader’s Missed Connections: TWILIGHT SINGERS, DOUBLE Door 11/9.

Seattle Show Tonight

The Twilight Singers finish off the first leg of their US tour tonight in Seattle. Should be a great time in one of Greg Dulli’s former “hometowns.” Travel safe.

Portland Show Tonight

Get out and see the boys in Portland tonight! Only two shows left on this leg…

San Francisco Show

Slim’s in SF tonight! On the road, celebrating the holidays. Back to full operation soon.

LA Show Tonight

After a brief rest, the Twilight Singers roll into LA tonight for a show at the El Rey. This promises to be a great night, as it is a homecoming for the band. Let’s hope that Greg’s feeling better and that the remaining shows go off as planned. Whether or not he’s sick off-stage, his on-stage demeanor is sure to be in fine form in front of an audience of friends. There is a full meet-up thread in the forum, which seems to be evolving….
