Alt-rock veteran keeps active

Eye – Gleam On

Eye – Gleam On – 05.25.06 Gleam On BY STUART BERMAN It’s Greg Dulli’s birthday — “my 27th,” quips the 41-year-old — and he’s celebrating it as any normal Los Angeles resident would. “I’m going to the LA gun club to do a little shooting,” he says excitedly. “I don’t actually own a gun, but I go down there and rent a few big ones to blow off any aggression I may have lingering inside of me.” You’d think after two decades of spilling his…

Twilight Singers retire the smoking jackets

Twilight Singers retire the smoking jackets | Chicago Tribune Twilight Singers, at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St. $16. 773-549-0203. Greg Dulli has made a career out of assuming the role of a smoking-jacket-clad playboy, the debonair crooner with lascivious desires, rotten habits and an insatiable thirst for between-the-sheets affairs. In the past, he’s let this devilish alter ego and self-loathing persona overwhelm his art. But on Twilight Singers’ “Powder Burns” (One Little Indian), the frontman begins burying the addictive demons that almost killed him. He…

Ohio native was determined to finish album in ravaged city

Aaron Beck THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH Sometimes a record’s history equals the listening experience. Powder Burns, the Twilight Singers’ fourth album in six years, is one such record. On their first three releases, the Singers — led by Greg Dulli, a Hamilton native and former frontman of Cincinnati’s Afghan Whigs — played gauzy, serene yet dark soundtracks for Dulli’s street-wise, nocturnal lyrics. Although Powder Burns incorporates some of that recipe, it is very much a loud, brash rock ’n’ roll statement. Dulli, during a recent phone…

Chicago Twilight Singers Preview

Illinois Entertainer – Steve Forstneger Before coming to Chicago for the first time in nearly three years, ex-Afghan Whig/current Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli agreed to a chat. IE: I don’t know if you follow them, but your Cincinnatti Reds are flirting with first place. Greg Dulli: Of course I know, dude. I got ‘em on fucking TV out here [in Los Angeles]. I got the package. Of any sports team, the Reds I follow completely. The four games they play here, I go to…

Reborn Amidst the Ruins

Pulse of the Twin Cities by Rob van Alstyne Greg Dulli has long been a creature of the night. In the two decades since the former University of Cincinnati film student first let his inner rock ‘n’ soul wild man out to play with the Afghan Whigs, his modus operandi has remained largely unchanged: simultaneously shaking the ass and scaring the pants off of every listener in the vicinity while spinning tales of afterhours delights and betrayals guaranteed to keep the faint of heart up…

Twilight’s Last Dreaming

Cincinnati Citybeat Greg Dulli assembles his masterpiece with the Twilight Singers’ Powder Burns Interview By Brian Baker Greg Dulli and The Twilight Singers’ latest album, Powder Burns, was recorded primarily in New Orleans, before and after last year’s catastrophic hurricane. There is an almost unearthly calm 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 wants to, but because that is its nature. In the past, Dulli had…

CiN Weekly – Powder burns

CiN Weekly – Powder burns Greg Dulli talks about music, the Reds and recording in New Orleans CHRIS VARIAS | CIN WEEKLY CORRESPONDENT On the other end of a long distance call to Los Angeles sits Greg Dulli, tugging on cigarettes and opining about his beloved Cincinnati Reds. He has lots to say. The Reds need another starter, or they’ll be done by August. Kearns is on the brink of greatness, and Griffey’s the odd man out in the outfield. He has contemplated picking up…

Album confronts Dulli’s demons

The Enquirer – Album confronts Dulli’s demons By Gil Kaufman There must be easier ways to record an album. But even if there were, former Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli wouldn’t have tried them. When it came time to work on the fourth CD by the Twilight Singers, Dulli waded into the waters left behind by Katrina to lay down tracks in his adopted home of New Orleans. The results can be heard on “Powder Burns,” which blends chilled-out tracks with Dulli’s patented mix of…
