The Gutter Twins
The two legends of present pop scene, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan have joined together to form The Gutter Twins. They were contributing in each other's work since 2000. But in July, 2007, it was announced by pitchforkmedia.com that they have officially united. It is reported that their album has been prepared and going to be launched on March 4, 2008 under the title of Saturnalia.
If you ask about the merging of such musical giants by themselves, they would only say that a matte of innocence brought then together. But it is a hard known fact that these people have formed a bond on the mystical grounds. The name of their first album suggests that they are more into exploring the mysteries of the universe attached with the human race and are necessary for its existence. The deep dark reality in the form of music has truly created a history among the contemporary artists of the same genre.
If we look at the thematic interpretation of the album it leads us to the concept of transgression, transcendence, sin and the personification of it in the form of Saturnalia. The desperate search like moods gets us close to the psychological build up the team members as well. They claim that their mood at the beginning was entirely different from the time they had ended it as they had moved towards the darkest side of reality. Their personal attachments like Lanegan's attachment with the Screaming Trees led out a way to the Nirvana and Mudhoney, amongst others.
Greg Dulli linked with Lanegan first as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs, not only were the Whigs the first non-Northwestern band to sign to Sub Pop Records, they also proved to be one of the most revered bands of the era In many ways, the heavy psychedelic roar of the Trees and the messianic, psychosexual soul-rock of the Whigs proved different yet oddly parallel: both groups epitomized the times, yet went beyond them in their idiosyncrasy, as did their distinctive front-men in later efforts.
Both Lanegan and Dulli pursued their solo careers after the split of Whigs and Screaming Trees by the end of 90s. They tried to have affiliations with others like Lenagen had closely linked with the Belle & Sebestian and others. While Dulli, kept on fusing the innovatively fused indie, soul and electronic sounds in a very innovative way. The Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight as Played by The Twilight Singers, in 2000; the most recent Twilight effort, 2006's Powder Burns, proved a crowning achievement, landing on many year-end best lists.
Both Dulli and Lanegan's pshche got a change as they kept a closer look at the subjects of mortality, betrayal and decay of life in a philosophical way. They had to fuse their thought sin Saturnalia as their soulful child. They can not tell you the main theme of their album in a single line as they find it open to so many perceptions of the listeners tell you what Saturnalia's theme is, because it's open to interpretation, but there's a seeking of transcendence that's new.
I have never written songs like this before. Lyrically, there's no obvious protagonist or antagonist; spirituality is there, however, both musically and lyrically. They have presented the foreign lands with classic details and how fate acts as a master to turn everything upside down for a man. It is an experience of its own as the melodies seem nostalgic at many times and even the modern themes and styles are so much infused in it.
Dulli and Lanegan along with the band's unofficial third member Mathias Schneeberger, tried it in an intentional way as to evoke a narcotic look by combining the Indian sitars to Appalachian folk and Delta grit. Idle Hands fuses Middle Eastern exoticism with shocking guitar riffs that shoot AC/DC boogie into another fucking galaxy. I Was in Love with you evocatively hybrids smoky, old-school soul with shimmering modern sounds and Petra Haden's gossamer violin. On All Misery, meanwhile, Lanegan's relentless vocal pulses with a new tribal syncopation, splitting the difference between Kurt Weill's whiskey bars, Eminem's flow, and associative Dylanesque wordplay.
The cumulative effect ultimately proves internal yet epic: the netherworld symphonics of Mogwai, Sigur Ros and Bohren und der Club of Gore are touchstones, alongside the sprawling emotions of Pink Floyd, the melodically catchy paranoia of the Beach Boys, the primal confessionals of John Lennon. Still, what Dulli and Lanegan achieve here ultimately feels like the determinedly individual product of two superstars coming together.
When Lanegan's ghostly baritone fuses into Dulli's world-weary rasp, the spine-tingling fusion proves unforgettably uncanny. The album definitely has its own universe, Lanegan says. I don't know what I would really compare it to- it's totally different. They both agree on ane aspect that they really wanted to create something really different from their own backgrounds and to break the grounds for a new experiment in music.
Dulli and Lanegan, collaboration remains a crucial aspect of what they do in the past. In addition to Queens and Isobel Campbell, Lanegan's history of alliances defies genre categories- he's worked with everyone from PJ Harvey and Kurt Cobain to electronic producers Soulsavers to Guns 'N Roses' Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin. Collaborating for me is what keeps me interested in music, says Lanegan. Dulli as well has an large string of collaborations to his credit, from producing and co-writing a smash album for Italian superstar rock group After hours to working with the likes of British dance-music producers Lo-Fidelity All-Stars. In 2007 alone, Dulli performed onstage with Lucinda Williams and contributed the title track to Intramural's debut album.
The Gutter Twins' mutual chemistry was cemented by the evolution of Front Street, Saturnalia's trenchant closing epic that's one of Dulli's most intimately raw, confessional performances. The pair came together on that song following a Twilight Singers appearance on the legendary radio show Morning Becomes
Eclectic:http://www.kcrw.com/music/programs/mb on L.A. radio station KCRW, repairing afterwards to Dulli's house for an impromptu recording session. They wrote songs by complementing each other and at the end they have been able to find each other work like and added in their first ever mutual album expected to be released in the start of 2008.
