Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

Leeds Festival 2006 Review

the twilight singers – live gig review Greg Dulli and his new line up perform to a packed out Carling Tent and you can only feel sorry for those misguided souls who would rather watch Franz Ferdinand than be here. With no previous The Twilight Singers knowledge I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but what I got was one of the musical highlights of the weekend. With material not a million miles away from the sounds created by Dulli’s previous incarnation The Afghan Whigs,…

Edinburgh 2006 Review

Evening Telegraph: Features: Grapevine The Twilight Singers featuring Mark Lanegan Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh the organisers of T on the Fringe scored another coup this year by bringing two of the best voices in rock to the capital, writes Stefan Morkis. The Twilight Singers, led by former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, would be a pretty strong draw on their own, but adding Mark Lanegan into the mix only adds to the occasion. Of course, the novelty factor of seeing two of rock’s most chemically-battered characters…

Too Tough to Die

The Skinny The Twilight Singers feat. Mark Lanegan: Too Tough to Die Written by Dave Kerr Monday, 21 August 2006 If I pull out a Whigs song at a show, you can bet your ass that my heart is all the way behind it. “It’s a voyeur’s paradise; I started feeling the pull of the unhealthy and backed away…”, Greg Dulli isn’t talking about a night out on Lothian Road , he’s calling out the more sinister properties of every kid in the land’s latest…

Cabaret Voltaire 06 Review

The Skinny Twilight Singers ft. Mark Lanegan @ Cabaret Voltaire, Aug 27 Written by Dave Kerr Rating: 4/5 ImageToo tough to die, too strange to change, therein lies the secret of their conviction “Daylight is creeping, I can feel it burn my face…” With his protégé Jeff Klein and old friend Mark Lanegan by his side, Greg Dulli and his Twilight Singers are invincible tonight. Though, as they pull the mask away from vice and addiction, their dark introspection leaves an element of confessional purgery…

Postcards From the Twilight Zone

Paste Magazine :: Feature :: Greg Dulli :: Postcards From the Twilight Zone (Page 1) Greg Dulli Postcards From the Twilight Zone It’s 4 p.m. the day after a late-night Chicago gig, and Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli still hasn’t peeled himself from the previous night’s floor. Dulli’s appetite for self-destruction is legendary, and not long ago, one might’ve concluded he was sleeping off a coke/smack ménage-á-trois. But sobriety has given him a new sense of clarity. “Did I have a drug problem? Absolutely,” the…

Powder Burns – Atomicduster

Atomicduster – Album Reviews Fourth album from erstwhile Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli’s latest outfit. T: The dog’s bollocks have grown hair since his operation. T: Hmmm…there’s not really much I can say to that is there? What I can say though is that Greg Dulli is rapidly proving himself to be on a similar level of genius to Ian McCulloch, in that whatever he puts out is beautifully put together, full of depth, ballsy and ultimately very satisfying. One of the great relatively unsung…

I’m Ready – Gigwise

GIGWISE by Chris Reynolds Straight from the pounding drum intro it’s clear The Twilight Singers have concocted a thoroughly sleazy sounding single. This track would be happy festering around in the dirt at the bottom of a beggars soiled mattress but this is the beauty to the track. From the seedy down tuned bass to the vocal effects on Greg Dulli’s voice it has everything to add that feel and yet retain a hook in the chorus. The fact that the recording process of the…
