Biography

“Whenever you’re here, you’re alive” are the first words sung on Dynamite Steps, the upcoming new album from Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers collective. That line comes from the opening track, “Last Night in Town.” Commencing a record with that title is a ballsy gambit, but there’s a method to his madness. “Last Night in Town” serves ...

So it has taken me a while to review this album.......... because I don't think that I can express just how good it is................
The Afghan Whigs drew my attention in the 90's with Greg Dulli's incredible emotion both lyrically and vocally, highlighted by what has continued to remain my favourite album of all time , 'Gentlemen'.
As the Whigs slid away into history and the Twilight Singers emerged I believed I would always feel deep down that the 'Singers would never fulfil me in the way that the Whigs did.
So Annie Mae was a great song , Blackberry Belle is a good album , She Loves you was a good idea , Powder Burns contains some superb tracks.......... and they are almost as great live........... Yes , that is the Twilight Singers............ but now....... here is Dynamite Steps.
Dynamite Steps does so much , it makes me feel the same as when I listen to Gentlemen. The reason being that all that Greg Dulli emotion in both the lyrics , and most importantly his vocals is back in force.
From the first track Last Night in Town, hauntingly , gently building up, ...'Whenever you're here you're alive...... it builds and builds , it lifts off , until it sinks you into the pain of ......'I promise to be with you till the end , or somewhere near there......' The paces slips back for Be Invited and slowly eases into Wave which then crushes you hard ........'muddy water ,broken glass' slightly distorted vocals ,full tempo, right through ,drums , guitar, alive!!!
Then it all eases back again , Get Lucky, piano, violin before presenting us with On The Corner.
The tempo slips away for Gunshots and She Was Stolen then into Blackbird And The Fox. It's the emotion , that emotion, the lyrics , the vocals....

Even before we hear one note of music the album's artwork
gives every indication that we are not going to be in for
a comfortable ride. 'Dynamite Steps' is a walk in the dark.
Greg Dulli is a master of the shadows which lurk in dusty
corners and long forgotten places where the sun rarely shines.
Listen to him bare his soul on the doom-laden opening track
'Last Night In Town' to fully appreciate his disconsolate muse.

This is not to say that The Twilight Singers are incapable of
producing a little human warmth when they set their minds to it.
'Get Lucky', for example, is a piano-led ballad which communicates
poetry, pathos and a substantial dose of cautious optimism.
Mr Dulli's torn and fractured vocal performance is truly moving.

The grumbling, throbbing bass which leads us into 'Waves', however,
presages a composition so violent in its execution that we are left
in no doubt that this is a band who have a firm grasp on how to
release a dangerous dose of primal energy into the listening world.
(The spirit of 1980's Husker Du came to mind for more than a moment).

Elsewhere we are occasionally surprised. The delicate acoustic introduction
to 'Blackbird and The Fox' makes way for a melody and harmonic arrangement
which is as powerful as it is memorable. One of the album's highlights.
'Never Seen No Devil' comes a close second with its whistful bluegrass
guitar and Rich Nelson's brooding cello decorations. Marvelously moody stuff!

The final song, title track 'Dynamite Steps', brings the album to a
hard-driving, emotionally uplifting, yet strangely ambiguous conclusion.

Catch it while you can before it disappears over the horizon without a trace!

I'm a fan of most things Greg Dulli has done, in particular his collaborations with Mark Lanegan and, of course, Powder Burns (more of which in a moment). Dynamite Steps has it's moments, soaring melodies, absorbing lyrics and some pretty cool electronica, Last Night in Town. On the Corner and Never Seen No Devil stand comparison with the best he's done, which means pretty damn good. But, and there is a but, it just isn't as diverse, textured or consistent as Powder Burns, there is none of the wonky, catchy brilliance of Bonnie Bray or Forty Dollars, the passion of Powder Burns itself, or the splendor of I wish I was. That's a lot of 'nones', which shouldn't dissuade anyone from buying this album, which is good, it's just not brilliant. Powder Burns is one of my favourite albums of the 21st century, along with Soulsavers' Broken and Mark Lanegan's Bubblegum. In that august company Dynamite Steps falls short of greatness.
