The Twilight Singers | Live With Me
Yes, Greg Dulli, like a stripper with a bucket of hot fudge you have full license to cover whatever the hell you want. If you don’t know, being the great live bar band that they
are were, The Afghan Whigs had scores of covers that are still floating around as bootlegs. The Supremes, TLC, The Pixies, The Smiths, etc. The dudes did a fantastic job of carrying the soul from whatever they were singing and porting it into their upbeat, smoke stenched sound.
So I’m very thrilled that Greg Dulli hasn’t stopped doing exactly that with his new band, The Twilight Singers. I found a cover for “Hyperballad” by Björk yesterday but was only slightly warmed up by it. But then Ben found a cover of the most recent Massive Attack single (and one of their best songs to date), “Live With Me” featuring Mark Lanegan from the Screaming Trees. It ‘s good wax.
