A Stitch in Time was the second EP released by The Twilight Singers and was first released on iTunes on October 10, 2006. Hard copies were later released in the UK on December 4, 2006 and in the US on January 23, 2007.

A Stitch in Time features guest appearances by the great Mark Lanegan and Joseph Arthur and includes some great covers including “Live with Me”, a Massive Attack cover, and “Flashback”, a Fat Freddys Drop cover.

When former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan joined The Twilight Singers for the August 06 leg of their European tour, Kerrang Magazine declared the London show at The Scala felt like “a wickedly illicit hit from a masterfully controlled substance.”

Here we see that very special chemistry first laid down on record with the release of this EP, on One Little Indian U.S. exclusively through iTunes.

Leading with the showstopping moment from their recent tour, the hypnotic cover of Massive Attack’s “Live With Me” the five track EP not only features the Twilight Singers alongside Lanegan, but guests Joseph Arthur and Rick McCollum from Greg Dulli’s former group, The Afghan Whigs.

SPIN Magazine named “Live With Me” Number 1 on their “Songs You Need To Download Now!” list in 2006.

“Live With Me” was one of two new tracks featured on Massive Attack’s 2006 greatest hits compilation “Collected”. Dulli has long been recognized for bringing eclectic influences to his live performances since his Afghan Whigs days when, as noted by Q Magazine recently, “their sound stirred comparisons of The Rolling Stones circa 1971 fused with Prince”.

Other tracks on the EP are “Sublime”, co-written by Dulli and Joseph Arthur, and featuring Arthur on guest vocals, “Flashback”, a cover of New Zealand’s finest high-tek soulsters, Fat Freddy’s Drop and features Mark Lanegan again on vocals, “They Ride”, co-written by Dulli and Rick McCollum, and “The Lure Would Prove Too Much” written by Dulli.

The EP release follows the heavy praise The Twilight Singers received for their latest album, “Powder Burns“, and offers a preview to the highly anticipated collaboration between Dulli and Lanegan, who later recorded an album under the moniker of The Gutter Twins.

Dulli and Lanegan have regularly contributed to each other’s projects since 2000. Lanegan was recently shortlisted for a Mercury Music Prize in the UK for his previous collaboration with Isobel Campbell, “Ballad Of The Broken Seas”.

Additionally,for the first time since parting company in 2001, former Whigs bandmates John Curley, Rick McCollum and Michael Horrigan recently joined forces again with Dulli to record new tracks for an upcoming Rhino retrospective Unbreakable, at Ardent Studios in Memphis,TN with longtime collaborator Jeff Powell.

It was during the last U.S. tour in support of the release of Powder Burns that the Twilight Singers were first joined by Mark Lanegan at an emotional show at One Eyed Jack’s in New Orleans. Both Dulli and Lanegan have strong ties to the city devastated the year before by Hurricane Katrina.

The Gutter Twins – Adorata (2008 iTunes exclusive EP)

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

The Gutter Twins – Adorata (2008)
iTunes exclusive EP
Mp3 @ 320 kbps / 68.5 MB
Released: September 2, 2008

Label: Sub Pop (SP #45932)
Recorded: 2003-2008
Genre: Alternative rock
Length: 33:03
Producer: Greg Dulli, Mark Lanegan


Man, this has set things off well for the fun filled weekend in store! Yap, The Emergency Room Gogo bar is reopening with half-price women, sorry drinks, tonight!

Almost as good as that – well, in the ballpark, but not really! – is the wonderful new EP from the Dirty Duo!

Yap, Adorata is the new iTunes exclusive EP from The Gutter Twins aka whiggy Greg Dulli and the wonderful Mark Lanegan!

On this 8-track EP, the Twins stick pretty close to the blues rock that they established with their full-length, Saturnalia, earlier this year.

IN fact, the EP was mostly recorded during sessions for Saturnalia.

We get one original Twins composition, the mellow “Belles”, and an eclectic series of covers of songs by the likes of Jose Gonzalez, Scott Walker, Primal Scream, and Vetiver.

The boys stamp their own authority on these rather excellent songs. The results are some beautifully wrenching tracks.

All in all, Adorata, is a very good EP, as strong as one would expect given the exceptional track record of Dulli and, especially, Lanegan!

Of very significant note is the fact that a portion of the proceeds from the release of Adorata will, very kindly, go to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund.

Natasha, a long-time friend of the band, was the lead singer for Eleven – a band we really liked – and was also a member of Queens Of The Stone Age.

Very sadly, on July 2, 2008 Natasha passed away following a battle with cancer. She was only 32.

Proceeds from the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund will be used to defray the costs associated with Natasha’s illness.

Therefore, please buy the original GT work.

You can donate to this very worthy fund directly by going here … http://www.natashashneider.org/

No links for this one, my friends. We did have a big moral qualm (I haven’t had one of those since the Vicar’s daughter blew me behind the bike shed, back in High School!) about this specific release, which we revisited on foot of a comment from a GT fan because of the kind artist donation to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund.

We’ve already said that a portion of the proceeds from the release of Adorata will, very kindly, go to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund – established to defray the costs associated with the late Natasha’s illness.

We really respect the generosity of this gesture by The Gutter Twins. Therefore, we encourage true music fans to please buy the original Adorata.

Live with me by the Twilight Singers (Greg Dulli et al) and Mark Lanegan

Great cover of Massive Attack’s Live with me by the Twilight Singers with Mark Lanegan.

The lyrics aren’t exactly Dylan-like, but the song, especially with Lanegan’s presence, has a distinct power.


Nice vid too.

That chick sure can drink! Must be a distant relative of mine!

It don’t matter, when you turn
Gonna Survive, live and learn
I’ve been thinking about you, baby
By the light of dawn,
My midnight blues,
day and night
I’ve been missing you.

I’ve been thinking about you, baby.
Almost makes me crazy,
Come and live with me.

Either way, Win or Lose,
When you’re born into trouble,
You live the blues,
I’ve been thinking about you, baby.
See it almost makes me crazy

Times, Nothing’s right, if you ain’t here
I’ll give all that I have, just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, I tried to, make it clear
You just don’t believe that I’m sincere
I’ve been thinking about you, baby.

Plans and schemes, hopes and fears
Dreams that deny, for all these years
I, I’ve been thinking about you, baby
Living with me

I’ve been thinking about you, baby
Makes me wanna [hoooo, hoooo,hoooo,hoooo]
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Times, Nothing’s right, if you ain’t here
I’ll give all that I have, just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, darling, tried to make it clear,
But you just don’t believe that I’m sincere

I’ve been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me, wow
I’ve been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me
