Photos: Stones Fest @ Fonda Theatre, Hollywood 5/30/13

Coinciding nicely with the recent run of Rolling Stones shows in town, the culprits behind the Petty Fest conjured up another stellar night with Stones Fest.

The Afghan Whigs’ 13 Most Vicious Songs

Greg Dulli is the quintessential wounded animal-as-frontman. Across six albums and a handful of stellar EPs throughout the better part of the '90s, Dulli and the Afghan Whigs left a swath of emotional and sexual destruction. Their early Sub Pop records were as raw lyrically as they were sonically, with a careful mix of confrontational… More »

Greg Dulli Covers Leonard Cohen

Greg Dulli, the once and future leader of the Afghan Whigs, is a man who knows a few things about whiskey-soaked baritones and libertine poetics, so he's the kind of guy you'd want to hear covering a Leonard Cohen song. And he's now done just that, participating in Rolling Stone's Cohen cover series "Old Idea… More »

Afghan Whigs Reunite For ATP

Back in the day, Greg Dulli's wailing soul-rock band the Afghan Whigs lent a much-needed air of sex and danger to an alt-rock era dominated by Seattle-style self-flagellating. The band broke up in 2001, but next year, they'll get back together to headline two big shows for All Tomorrow's Parties. More »

The Twilight Singers – “On The Corner”

"Blackbird And The Fox," the first single from the Twilight Singers's fifth album Dynamite Steps, featured Greg Dulli and Ani DiFranco in a slow-burn duet. Dulli goes it alone vocally on "On The Corner": After the cheap drum machine ducks out things open up considerably, so feel free to continue with the fire metaphors. More »

Every Good Boy Deserves Grunge: Blender‘s Brief Oral History Of Sub Pop

Sub Pop's celebrating its 20th Anniversary: We told you about that and the SP20 festival. Blender did an oral and visual history titled "Going Out of Business Since 1988!" to honor the occasion. It's not Please Kill Me-sized or on the scale of Thurston Moore and Byron Coley's upcoming No Wave book, but… More »

New Gutter Twins Video – “Idle Hands”

Props to the Gutter Twins for harnessing the inherent "this makes me want to run around and blow shit up"-iosity (technical music term, guys) of "Idle Hands" in this video featuring nothing more than kids running around, blowing shit up. OK, that's not true. They also use flame throwers to light-on-fire shit up. There'… More »

Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan Talk Internet Music Writing And “Snarky Hipsterism”

In an interview with Pitchfork today, alt-rock heroes Greg and Mark spend some time talking about the genre-sweeping stable of artists at Sub Pop, often home to the both crooners' endeavors, with and sans bands, and now place of residence for the duo's rather kick-ass Gutter Twins project. Dulli takes the lead here, confessing… More »

New Gutter Twins Video – “All Misery / Flowers”

The initial push for Dulli and Lanegan's Gutter Twins project revolved around shit-kicking love anthem (yes, there is such a thing) "Idle Hands," with the MP3 and the Letterman performance and the so on. Now the focus shifts to the weather-beaten oddity "All Misery / Flowers," and as that slash suggests, there are… More »

The Gutter Twins Offer Letterman Their “Idle Hands”

Dave shows his soft spot for good rock here and there, so we weren't surprised to see him tip his cap to Dulli and Lanegan's rough and road-grizzled, shit-kicking tough-love anthem "Idle Hands" last night. The so-called 'Satanic Everly Brothers' floored us with the song a few months ago, and here they remind… More »

New Gutter Twins – “Idle Hands”

That's it, we're calling it: Hands are the indie appendages of 2008. Destroyer showed off his "Foam" ones in an advance listen of this March's Trouble In Dreams, now the mighty Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli answer the call with a handy track of their own. Of course their turn's about as dark a… More »

Greg Dulli Covers José González

The generally awesome Greg Dulli cut his teeth as a sweaty, oversexed r&b-infused Ohio heartbreaker in Afghan Whigs and then got himself some New Orleans gospel swagger in Twilight Singers. José González, on the other hand, rose to fame with some colorfully bouncing balls as an achy Swedish folkie covering his pals the Knife's "Heartbeats."… More »
