Rock Bottom | Jerusalem Post

Rock Bottom | Music | Jerusalem Post In one of my favorite scenes from the life-altering film Fight Club, Tyler Durden and the narrator look at a photo of a model of which Tyler comments, “self-improvement is masturbation, self-destruction on the other hand…” Listening to The Gutter Twins’ first album Saturnalia one thing is certain: they are not a couple of masturbators.

The Gutter Twins, Komedia, Brighton

The Independent 4/5 Stars A satanic howl from the Gutters Reviewed by Fiona Sturges They could be secondary schoolteachers. If you saw them setting up for an afternoon’s busking you would probably hold on to your change, assuming a dreary MOR rock band. But looks can be deceiving.

Night & Day: In search of transcendence

The Prague Post Online By Darrell Jónsson In 2007, when Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan’s long-awaited collaboration Saturnalia was released (on Sub Pop records), expectations were extremely high — and no one was disappointed.

After their former groups disbanded in the late ’90s, both artists pursued musical choices and projects that served their musical evolution well. For Lanegan, this included a stint with California…
