Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

London 06 Review

Independent Online Edition > Reviews When I say that Greg Dulli, the former leader of American alt-rock legends The Afghan Whigs, is a man of substance, it isn’t purely a weight gag (the extra pounds on his Greek-American frame notwithstanding). There’s a magnetism, a charisma and a gravitas to him you simply don’t get with most rock singers. Dulli’s new band is The Twilight Singers and if they are half as good as the breathtaking gig I saw at the Islington Academy in 2004, I…

The Twilight Singers/Jeff Klein London Review

The Twilight Singers/ Jeff Klein – First night reviews – Times Online by David Sinclair – Garage, N5 On a sweltering night, the air thick with smoke and the floor awash with beer, the Garage is the venue from hell. It seemed to suit Greg Dulli, the leader and mainstay of the Twilight Singers. A swashbuckling survivor, who started the Afghan Whigs in Cincinnati 20 years ago, Dulli is now on to his fourth album with the Twilight Singers and is still making some of…

Greg Dulli | The Onion A.V. Club Interview

Greg Dulli | The A.V. Club Interviewed by Marc Hawthorne July 12th, 2006 Greg Dulli Greg Dulli has always seemed more confident and in control than most of his peers, but the 41-year-old leader of the ’90s alt-rock underdog The Afghan Whigs and the mastermind of The Twilight Singers isn’t a stranger to setbacks, including depression, heroin use, a club fight that resulted in a fractured skull, a meltdown in an airport that sent him to the hospital and put him in restraints, and the…

NYC Review – AvoidPeril.com

AvoidPeril.com There are several schools of thought out there regarding Greg Dulli. Some folks will go see Dulli every time he comes to town for the entertainment factor as much as the music. Anyone who has ever attended an Afghan Whigs or Twilight Singers show knows that Dulli can sometimes do as much colorful shit talking as he does singing. Others feel that Dulli’s hambone stage persona seriously undercut his credibility as an artist, and it’s easy to see their point. It isn’t always easy…

Being There: Twilight Singers

The Cleveland Free Times Grog Shop, Wednesday, May 24 By Shelly Greenberg Greg Dulli, the mastermind behind the Twilight Singers, completely mesmerized a packed house at the Grog Shop. The band came on stage as “Toward the Wave” filtered out of the speakers, and Dulli and his cohorts emerged from the crowd to take their places to deliver the powerful “I’m Ready.” Instant pandemonium broke out as audience members moved to the front. With his Baldwin Brothers good looks, Dulli smirked at bass player Scott…

Soundtrack: New Orleans

newsobserver.com Excerpt: While the many musical tributes to New Orleans in the months immediately after the storm tended to focus on the city’s widely recognized musical heritage, “Powder Burns” is instead a meditation on loss and disaster. Dulli said he continues to find meaning in the songs as he plays them on tour, including a stop Saturday at the Cat’s Cradle. “I had to capture it for me personally,” he said. “It’s not rife with hurricane imagery. It’s certainly not literal. I’m still figuring out…

Hot Night in Dulli’s Inferno

Randomville “He’s a pimp.” “He is the man!” You tend to hear a lot of this whenever Greg Dulli is in the house. Holding court—Dulli is the exalted leader of an international underground cult of horny young bucks who would give their left nut for five minutes in his shoes. Cigarette dangling—he is the dream lover of women around the world who should know better. Unapologetic—he takes every crowd by the throat and taunts and teases them; ultimately, owning them. He might steal your girlfriend,…

AFTER THE STORM

Amplifier Magazine Issue #54 By Brian Baker There is an almost unearthly calm that emanates from the phone as Greg Dulli speaks. It’s reminiscent of the deathly silence that comes moments before a tornado heedlessly levels everything in its erratic path, not because it has any malevolent intent, but because that is its nature. There was a time when Dulli had more in common with the tornado’s demolition than the uncharacteristic peace that precedes it, but times have changed. Greg Dulli has found serenity. In…

When The Lights Go Down In The City

SFist How about that Twilight Singers show on Monday? It blew our socks off, and now we’re inspired to fill in the holes in our Twilight Singers album collection. Our friend Jeff Klein is on tour with Dulli and company, so we had a chance to spend time with them on their Sunday night off in San Francisco. A trip to Tommy’s Joint for dinner followed by drinks at the excellent new Mission bar Homestead revealed all the band members to be rather mellow: just…

Twilight offers dark celebration of rock ‘n’ roll

Reuters By Paul Gargano LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – “It’s the first day of summer, and tonight we are pagans,” Greg Dulli declared before launching into “I’m Ready,” the opening song of a two-hour hometown set on Wednesday night at the Avalon. The Twilight Singers frontman has never been one to pine for salvation, instead using his music as an outlet for his addictions, afflictions and angst. While the resulting music is dark, onstage in Hollywood it was delivered with an engaging charm and candor…
