I’m Ready – STV

STV Twilight Singers – I’m Ready Article by Ed Hurley Announcing itself like the sleaze rock cousin of The Prodigy’s Break and Enter, Twilight Singers’ latest effort breathes down the neck and serves up a stiff whiskey with a quickness. Although hardly the showstopper of latest LP ‘Powder Burns’, when placed in context this is merely an appetizer to pull the listener into the latest wicked web woven by Greg Dulli and co. The notion that I’m Ready could just as easily be perceived as…

Carling Weekend 2006

Drowned in Sound – Features – Editorial – Carling Weekend 2006 – Friday The Twilight Singers found rain to accompany them, not that it was needed with the soaked and stirred missives of an unsurprisingly Afghan Whigs flavour, duly aided by Mark Lanegan’s liquor gold vocals on ‘Where Did You Sleep Last Night’. Poised, ripened, covered in hope, this is the tang of time honoured blues men at their peak – a truly refreshing spectacle near the end of a very average day of music.

London 06 Review – This is London

This is London 4/5 Stars A bark and a growl By David Smyth, Evening Standard 23.08.06 For a man with seemingly the charm and outgoing nature of a boulder, Mark Lanegan is very popular. Since leaving Seattle grunge pioneers the Screaming Trees, the 41-year-old has been seen glowering and impassive on stage with rockers Queens of the Stone Age, and recently picked up a Mercury nomination for his dark duets with impish ingenue Isobel Campbell. Now he’s touring with fellow early-Nineties survivor Greg Dulli, also…

Helsinki 06 Review

8 Tracks Written by Taru Lindfors “Have a drink with me”. That was Greg Dulli’s invitation for an intense two and a half hours show in a packed Tavastia club. The night was hot and cigarette smoke filled the air. It was one of those nights when everything seemed to be right, when the band and the audience connect through the music. It is a special night; it is not just another concert. It is The Twilight Singers at their best. The long summer night…

Twilight in New Orleans

offBeat :: Fresh :: Twilight in New Orleans Former Afghan Whigs front man and part-time New Orleanian Greg Dulli is one whose heyday shined so brightly that the rest of his life’s output might inevitably seem less important. Dulli may not produce as many perfect songs as back when SubPop Records signed the Afghan Whigs as the label’s first non-Seattle band — his masterpiece remains his simultaneously tender and macho major-label debut, Gentlemen. But the new Powder Burns, by his Twilight Singers, features some of…

Toronto 06 Review

Twilight Singers Lee’s Palace, Toronto ON – May 27, 2006 By Stuart Green July 05, 2006 If there’s a more suave, sophisticated and just plain cool front-man than Greg Dulli, I’ll smoke my CD collection. Not since Bryan Ferry crooned a ‘Song for Europe’ swirling a snifter of brandy while wearing a white tuxedo jacket with a cigarette dangling from his lips has rock seen such a debonair character. Dulli’s super-coolness was on display in spades this night. From the moment the roadies lit the…

London 06 Review – New-Noise

new noise The Twilight Singers – Live@ Garage, London By James Hickie He may look like a cross between Frankie Howerd and Joaquin Phoenix but Greg Dulli is a man who has had countless relationships with women, the tormented nature of them fuelling his songs in his previous band The Afghan Whigs and now in The Twilight Singers. It helps that these songs – more recently showcased on the radar-dodging but critically lauded album ‘Powder Burns’ – have a sexy blues swagger, which makes them…

Nottingham 06 Review

thisisnottingham.co.uk The Twilight Singers, Rescue Rooms, Tuesday 11th July DRESSED in regulation black but radiating a surprising bonhomie, former Afghan Whigs front man Greg Dulli has the look of someone who has conquered his demons and come back smiling. (Well, perhaps not all of his demons: with his microphone stand niftily customised to hold an ashtray, Dulli’s constant chain smoking puts champion chuffer Ryan Adams in the shade.) Although his songs mostly deal with the dark, dysfunctional side of human relationships, you sense Dulli has,…

London 06 Review – Rocksound

Issue 88 Tarik Algin The Garage, London Such is the heat tonight that despite the efforts of two huge fans at generating some air circulation, the capacity crowd may as well be crammed into a sauna in hell. But if there’s one band that can cope with such grimy conditions it’s The Twilight Singers. As streetwise troubadour frontman Greg Dulli steps on stage crashing into “I’m Ready” with a strut and a sneer, it’s obvious that he’s familiar with the dark, sleazy underbelly of life….

London 06 Review – Kerrang

The Garage 7.12.06 4 Ks Alistair Lawrence Combustible Soul-Rockers Increase the Heat “Can You Dig It?!” cries Twilight Singers’ Greg Dulli, standing stage-centre, drenched in sweat. The sold-out crowd can, of course. Quoting the most famous line from cult ’70s action flick “The Warrior” has its own resonance for Dulli, who appears to have defeated every personal and professional trauma imaginable at least twice, but tonight everyone in the place is fighting a common foe: the sweltering temperature. That the battle’s being fought to a…
