Men in Black

sfweekly.com Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan tangle with trouble By Jennifer Maerz Beyond grunge’s punk bulldozers existed ’90s alt-rock giants Afghan Whigs and the Screaming Trees; they were simpatico with the bombastic angst of the Northwest superstars, but traded rattling sludge for melodic heaviness.

Of the…

Greg Dulli: In the Twilight Zone

Harp Magazine By Randy Harward It’s 10 p.m. in Greg Dulli’s Stockholm hotel room and 1 p.m. at Harp’s satellite office. The business at hand is to discuss Dulli’s latest Twilight Singers album, Powder Burns. It’s one helluva record, the same intensely soulful rock ’n’ roll we’d expect from Dulli—even more so. It rocks, in spots, like Gentlemen the 1993 album by Dulli’s former band Afghan Whigs. No matter which flag the guy runs up his pole, it doesn’t move with the wind—it makes the…

Katrina, sobriety color Dulli’s ‘Powder Burns’

Scripps Howard News Service By MATT SEBASTIAN Scripps Howard News Service 16-JUN-06 For Greg Dulli, “Powder Burns” is a record of beginnings and catastrophic ends. The album _ the fourth CD the former Afghan Whigs frontman has issued under the Twilight Singers’ banner _ not only finds the swaggering alt-rock Lothario newly sober, it was recorded in New Orleans just before and right after Hurricane Katrina ripped through the region and devastated the Crescent City. “Oh my goodness, you know, it really was the apocalypse,”…

Greg Dulli dons the grace, doffs the pressure

Seattlepi.com By TIZZY ASHER As frontman for the Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli wrote some of the most virulent relationship songs in the modern musical canon. It was as if anger and betrayal resided inside his pillow in place of feathers, leeching into his head while he slept. When the Whigs dissolved in 2001, Dulli carried that perspective forward to his new band, The Twilight Singers. He just changed the sound in which it was wrapped. Where the Whigs were gritty and aggressive, The Twilight Singers…

Afghan Whigs: Hello Goodbye

Mojo June 2006. They met in the drunk tank and were off to the races. But a random act of violence sank the ship. This month it’s…Greg Dulli and The Afghan Whigs. HELLO October 1986 I went to this Halloween celebration in Athens, Ohio. I was pissing on a wall and got put in jail, cited for indecent exposure. And in the drunk tank I met Rick McCollum [guitar], who had been selling weed. We had John Curley [bass] in common. Rick found Steve Earle,…

Rocka Rolla

The Stranger When the Levee Breaks BY HANNAH LEVIN Despite the fact that he hasn’t lived here for years, former Afghan Whigs frontman and current Twilight Singers leader Greg Dulli is still considered one of our own by many Seattle music fans, so the Twilight Singers’ show at Neumo’s on Saturday, June 17, will undoubtedly have that family-reunion vibe going—especially with Dulli’s longtime friend and collaborator Mark Lanegan joining him onstage. Also on the bill will be Afterhours, the Italian rock band that Dulli produced…

Rock ‘n’ roll cravings

Salt Lake Tribune Like his beloved New Orleans, Greg Dulli has survived life’s storms and stays hungry for more of the unexpected By Dan Nailen I’m here to make the case for Greg Dulli, leader of The Twilight Singers and formerly of Afghan Whigs, as the personification of the American rock ‘n’ roll dream. Consider the evidence. Dulli grew up in suburban Cincinnati, where he formed the Afghan Whigs in 1986. Three years later the Whigs became the first non-Seattle band to sign with Sub…

OregonLive.com Return of a Twilight man Greg Dulli Lead singer of the Twilight Singers “Whatever you heard about me before, believe me, things ain’t what they were.” — “I’m Ready,” by the Twilight Singers Coming from a such notorious character as Greg Dulli, leader of the Twilight Singers and, before them, the Afghan Whigs, such a statement might well be worthy of suspicion. Not only has Dulli cultivated a reputation for wildness and excess, but his lyrics long have been remarkably open about the contradictory,…

In the Twilight zone

NOLA.com Former Afghan Whigs lead singer Greg Dulli finds inspiration in New Orleans for his new band’s latest album Friday, June 02, 2006 By Keith Spera Music writer For years, Greg Dulli fed his appetite for destruction in seedy bars along lower Decatur Street. But weeks after Hurricane Katrina, with the city still largely abandoned, the former Afghan Whigs and current Twilight Singers vocalist strode down an empty Royal Street early one morning.
