Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

London 06 Review – Guardian

Guardian Unlimited Music Betty Clarke 4/5 Stars The nearest grunge came to glamour was Kurt Cobain’s baggy cardigans, with the furious tossing of long, lank hair passing for stage-craft for the likes of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. But nestling amongst the nihilism and drug-induced stroppiness of the Seattle scene stood the debonair leader of the Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli. Dulli was as much Rat-Pack raconteur as Generation-X rocker. Cigarette in hand, he’d opine, charm and entertain, his old-fashioned showbiz contrasting with the modern darkness of…

SPIN.com Thanksgiving

SPIN.com: Greg Dulli, Freaking Flicks, and Silly Hats I had the opportunity to see Greg Dulli and his band at Brooklyn’s Warsaw last week, and it served as an excellent reminder of two things. The first is that once I turn 30, I’m officially banning myself from rock clubs, because there is rarely anything more embarrassing than an old guy at a show. The second, though, is more important: Dulli is my favorite musician of all time. You can keep your Dylans and Bowies and…

Brooklyn 06 Review – CMJ

cmj.com Judging by last night’s Twilight singers show, Greg Dulli’s vices have been good to him. Puffing on cigarettes and downing drinks, Greg led the band through fan favorites (“I’m Ready”, “There’s Been An Accident”) and an assortment of covers . Former Screaming Trees singer and sometime Queens of The Stone Age collaborator Mark Lanegan joined the band for a handful of songs including a searing cover of the Leadbelly classic made famous by Nirvana, “Where Did You Sleep Last Night”. The band took the…

Boston 06 Review

Rock and role The Phoenix Greg Dulli may wear his tender heart on his suave, stylish sleeve, but it’s just bait — a lure for unwitting romantics who enjoy having their hearts broken. At least, that’s the role he played for more than a decade fronting Cincinnati’s Afghan Whigs, a ’90s Sub Pop band who took their grunge with less metal and more classic R&B groove and dark atmospherics than your typical Seattle-ite. Indeed, the Twilight Singers, the band that brought Dulli to the Paradise…

Dulli Interview – Omaha City Weekly

Omaha City Weekly By Jeremy Buckley Sometimes it’s something as simple as the death of a loved one or the birth of a child for a person with a drug problem to realize it’s time for some change. For Greg Dulli, former lead singer of the Afghan Whigs and someone that has battled drug addiction for years, it took one of the worst natural disasters in American history to set him straight. “Four of my friends lost their houses completely (during Hurricane Katrina) and it’s…

Twilight Singers Bring Sultry Sounds to Warsaw

Brooklyn Record by Jonny Leather. 1993’s Afghan Whigs album Gentleman could very well be the most underrated album of the ’90s, but it was able to gain front man Greg Dulli a legion of followers who will forever hang onto his every word. Now, 12 years later, Dulli has once again released an overlooked masterpeice, this time with his latest group, Twilight Singers. On Thursday last week, Warsaw played host to the Twilight Singers final show of their United States tour. The stage was set…

Dirty Tricks Campaign Dulli Interview

thedirtytrickscampaign.com: An Interview with The Twilight Singers’ Greg Dulli Portions of this interview ran in the Tampa Bay edition of Creative Loafing So is tonight the first night of the new tour, or tomorrow night? Tomorrow night. That’s San Francisco, right? Right. You didn’t have a whole lot of time off between tours this time around. Not much. Well, I guess we had six weeks, but it’s been a very busy season for Twilight Singers. Do you still enjoy spending a lot of time on…

Twilight Singers Play Warsaw

SPIN.com Brooklyn’s own Warsaw, the Polish National Home-cum-music venue, was again an unlikely nexus last night, bringing together music lovers and pierogi enthusiasts alike for Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers, who were playing the final installment of three special gigs for Zig Zag Live’s concert series. Portland’s Stars of Track & Field warmed up the crowd with their sheer enthusiasm and tightly knit hooks (though it helped that they were wearing ascots, as no one can resist the charm of a well-dressed man). With a candelabrum,…

Lazy-i: Omaha 06 Review

Lazy-i: Live Review: The Twilight Singers; Guster, Now It’s Overhead on Halloween night… It’s impossible to not be entertained by Greg Dulli and his band, the Twilight Singers. He is the consummate entertainer. Like the last time he was here back in ’03, Dulli came on stage dressed all in black, along with the rest of his band. He looked like a cocky middle-aged John Belushi, guitar over his shoulder, cigarette in hand (In fact, the entire band smoked throughout the set, making Sokol Underground…

60 SECONDS: Greg Dulli

Metro.co.uk Singer Greg Dulli was frontman with 1990s grunge rockers The Afghan Whigs when he would famously leave the stage for a 20-minute fag break.

They start a tour in Dublin on November 18. How would you compare The Twilight Singers to The Afghan Whigs? Similar but different. There’s more…
