Surviving the storm

theage.com.au The Twilight Singers cleaned up after Katrina. Imagine being booked in to record a new album only to have a hurricane rip through your recording studio. That’s what happened to Greg Dulli of the Twilight Singers as he prepared to record Powder Burns in New Orleans in 2005. Most musicians would delay the recording or move it elsewhere.

Philly 06 Review

Plug In music November 13, 2006 – Twilight Singers Theatre of Living Arts Philadelphia, PA, USA In art and music, getting the ideal mood and ambiance is incredibly important. Once the equipment had been set up and sound checked, the cigarettes, drinks and towels brought out, set lists taped down, the incense and candelabra lit, things were almost ready.

Glasgow 06 Review

The Skinny The Twilight Singers @ Oran Mor, 21 Nov Written by Gareth K Vile Bar-room keyboards tinkle in the softer moments, the band are by turns reflective and aggressive The Twilight Singers are a post-grunge super group – led by Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs and featuring a guest appearance from Screaming Trees’ Mark Lanegan – and their music is nostalgic without being out-dated.

Harp Magazine He’s a former Afghan Whigger and current Twilight Singer. He’s allergic to shellfish but rather partial to the odd crab cake. He possesses X-ray vision, has been sawed in half and firmly believes that Eddie Van Halen has discovered the cure for cancer. He’s Greg Dulli, ladies and gents, and he doesn’t give a shit. 1) I am allergic to shellfish, which is ok, actually, because I find it all quite disgusting. However, I had a dream about 10 years ago where I…

Bad News Boys

Guardian Arts Tattoos, drugs, beatings, stalkers, prison, betrayal and years of making great music – could Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan be any more rock’n’roll? They talk to Paul Lester Mark Lanegan can make the most benign enquiry sound like a veiled threat. We’re backstage at Koko in Camden, north London, waiting for Greg Dulli to finish soundchecking for tonight’s Twilight Singers performance, and for some reason the conversation has turned towards the prissy journalist’s preference for Diet Coke over the regular full-sugar variety. “Did…
