The Gutter Twins 

With Great Northern. Wednesday, March 12, at the Beachland Ballroom.

The Gutter Twins include two of modern rock's greatest, if chronically neglected, singers: former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli and Screaming Trees' Mark Lanegan. The two whiskey-voiced crooners have long been running buddies in the loosely knit Twilight Singers, where their interaction has been curiously limited. That's not the case on the Gutter Twins' just-released Saturnalia, which finally sees the full integration of elements from both singers' careers. "All Misery/Flowers" borrows the Twilight Singers' mesmeric trip-hop beats, but they're played on a real drum kit, complete with a grungy blues backdrop. With Lanegan's voice in the shadows, "Circle the Fringes" is as dark as any of the Whigs' material, while "The Stations" puts the spotlight on Lanegan. Joseph Arthur, violinist Petra Haden, and trip-hop diva Martina Topley-Bird — who sang on Tricky's best work — guest on the CD. Can't wait to see what they do with it live.
