Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

Rising Above the Flood

playbackstl Written by Jim Dunn “We’ll work on a riff, we’ll see where the riff goes, then we’ll go drinking.” Greg Dulli, formerly of the Afghan Whigs and currently big papa of the Twilight Singers, is a man of many desires, not all of them good for his health. He pours those passions into his albums and various projects too numerous to mention, though, and we are all better for it. It makes for an outsized character that is respected but can also be seen…

I’m Ready – Manchester Music

Manchester Music By Simon Brown “Powder Burns” pointed the way for Greg Dulli’s return and “I’m Ready“ is another example of his more firebrand sounding rock . Burning along with the grim rattle of shaking guitars and the former Whig’s browbeaten lounge room vocals, it looks as though the Twilight Singers continue to invigorate with their incendiary reinventions. Better still is the Lo Fidelity Allstars Remix, which extracts the twangy guitar and Dulli’s rough sawn soul fuelled vocal lines, themselves assisted by Joseph Arthur. A…

I’m Ready – Single Review

Drowned in Sound Nick Cowen 8/10 According to the rumour mill, the lead-off single from the new Twilight Singers’ platter was supposed to be ‘Bonnie Brae’. It’s probably better not to speculate on why this didn’t happen; besides, if you’ve heard said song, and you know the geography around MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, you can draw your own conclusions. It doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things: there are no dull moments on Powder Burns and this two-tracker stacks up real nice….

Readexpress.com Interview

Express LIKE SOME KIND of rock ‘n’ roll St. Augustine, Greg Dulli’s lyrics always seems to cry out, “Lord, give me chastity and temperance — but not yet.” The mastermind of the Twilight Singers knows whereof he sings. His larger-than-life persona is built on 20 years of rock hedonism — including 15 as leader of alt-rock darlings the Afghan Whigs. Greg DulliAnd on his ownership of two hip L.A. bars. So temperance might threaten the bottom line. But before he began recording the Twilight Singers’…

Hollywood, CA June 21 2006 Review

Tone and Groove The Twilight Singers/Afterhours/Jeff Klein June 21, 2006- The Avalon, Hollywood, CA The Twilight Singers ended their US tour with a show in Hollywood on a Wednesday night, and what a show it was. Regrettably, I got there too late to see Jeff Klein, whom I have heard good things about. Jeff is going to continue with the Twilight Singers on the European leg of their tour, and I advise you not to miss him. The second opening band was Italy’s Afterhours, The…

London, Highbury Garage, 12th July Review

whisperinandhollerin.co.uk ‘London, Highbury Garage, 12th July 2006’ Our Rating: 9/10 Punters were in for a sweaty night at the Garage – the whole venue stank of beer and body odour, nice! Ah well, everyone was in the same boat, and by the end of the stunning opening act from JEFF KLEIN, pretty much everyone was drenched, but the general mood was gleeful and no-one seemed to mind. Needless to say, it was highly pointless for the ladies to put make-up on in a venue like…

BBC – Nottingham – Entertainment – The Twilight Singers @ Rescue Rooms 11/7/06 The Twilight Singers @ Rescue Rooms 11/7/06 Anthony Allcock Our Ant is hooked – he says it’s the best gig he’s seen in years and years.

The Twilights are in town so black out…

Seattle 06 Review

Static Multimedia – The Twilight Singers – Seattle, WA The Twilight Singers – Seattle, WA Neumo’s The cracking snare of the Roots’ “The Seed 2.0” signaled Greg Dulli’s arrival on the stage of Neumo’s, and if you think that’s weird, then you don’t know Greg Dulli. Despite strapping on a guitar for the first time in years for his band’s new album, Powder Burns, Dulli has always been in possession of soul. Other bands might stick choruses of “Little Red Corvette” or Culture Beat’s long-forgotten…

London 06 Review – PowPowPow

powpowpow.com The Twilight Singers – Garage, London 12 July 2006 Written by Storm Roberts Thursday, 13 July 2006 Strolling down towards the Garage with the heat of the setting sun burning in my eyes, the sultry, grittyness of a humid London summer’s evening: the perfect precursor for an evening with the legendary Greg Dulli and the Twilight Singers. Opening act, Mr Jeff Klein from New York City, was a perfect appetiser, skilful, rhythmic guitar enhanced by stage recorded loops, layered with husky, gravel edged vocals…

T in the Park Preview

T for twenty THE TWILIGHT SINGERS King Tut’s Tent, today SOME music doesn’t come into its own until you experience it live, and so it is with the Twilight Singers. The soul-rock outfit based around the talents of grunge veteran Greg Dulli may not be a headline act, but you can bet they’ll put on one of the best shows at T in the Park. Dulli is one of the most charismatic of entertainers. Formerly frontman of the Afghan Whigs, the hugely underrated grunge outfit…
