From the Archives – Venice Magazine

Things are starting to slow down, post-tour and pre-She Loves You. Time to feature some of the archives. In their November 2003 edition, Venice Magazine ran a multi-page interview with Greg Dulli. It has a lot of the standard album release questions (Demme, Amber Headlights, makeup of the band); but it has three unique photographs to accompany the piece. The article and photos are archived here at Summer’s Kiss. Many thanks to the anonymous tipster that sent it in. Greg Dulli – Venice Magazine Interview

Jazzy Jeff and DJ Dulli

For you uber-collectors out there, Millenium Series Volume 5 – The 90s is our featured eBay auction. I can’t think of anyplace else (aside from your cousin’s sick mix tapes) that you can segue from Tag Team to Turn on the Water. You don’t really want this, do you?

Guttertwins.com Redesign

Rob has redesigned GutterTwins.com. Stop by and take a look around. Nice job as always.

Death Cab for Dulli

In a Seattle P-I interview, Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard had this to say about his influences: “I think the music I write and the music we play has an emotional weight to it. And the bands that I’ve always related to and loved, like Red House Painters or Afghan Whigs, are bands that write intellectual love songs.” Death Cab is currently promoting their new album, Transatlanticism.

Curley & Horrigan Support Almond

Former Afghan Whigs members John Curley and Michael Horrigan will be backing Todd Almond Saturday night at the Southgate House in Cincinnati. The show is a CD release party for both Almond, who starred in the local production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and headliners Ruby Vileos. More Info

New Orleans – One Eyed Jacks – Tonight

Safe travels to all those headed out to the last scheduled Twilight Singers show of the spring. New Orleans is always a great city to visit; but when the band is in town, it’s something special. One Eyed Jack’s is the former Shim Sham Club, located at 615 Toulouse St. Ah, memories. Tickets are day of show only (yep, today); but you’ll probably have a wait if you show up before mid-afternoon. The postponed Seattle and Portland shows remain to be scheduled. Stage Setlist: Feeling…

The Twilight Rabbit

This is a real treat. For your consideration: A review of the Twilight Singers show in London. An obvious fan, the review is raving and the writing excellent. The fabulous part, however, is the illustrations. You’ve got to check this out. Kitten Painting’s TS Islington Review -Thanks Bea

Looking Forward to GT

In a recent interview, Greg had this to say about the Gutter Twins tour: The next time “we tour, we will perform songs from the Gutter Twins, the Twilight Singers, Mark’s solo stuff, the Screaming Trees, the Afghan Whigs — and any other covers that we’ve done along the way,” says Dulli. “We’ll be able to pick from a couple hundred songs.” What back cataglog tunes from these guys would you want to hear live? Which old songs would benefit most from the collaboration? Keep…

Moon Maan Update

The Star Tribune was at the Moon Maan debut. MOON MAAN LANDS This year’s award for best use of a theramin in a rock gig goes to Rick McCollum, whose new band Moon Maan made its local debut last Friday at the 400 Bar. Throughout the show, the former Afghan Whigs guitarist interlaced his six-string with the electric-whirring instrument (see: “Good Vibrations”). That was hardly all that was interesting about the set, though. While his singing is only passable, McCollum is still wicked as ever…

Portland & Seattle Postponed

The Twilight Singers’ Portland and Seattle shows have been postponed. Greg is experiencing a bout of laryngitis. The dates will be made up this summer. The New Orleans show (April 29) will go on as planned.
