The Twilite Kid
When Greg Dulli disbanded the Afghan Whigs he already had another project on the go The Twilight Singers. In 2000 the demos for the band's first album were leaked and so Dulli decided to rework the songs with dance remixers from Hull , Fila Brazilia, a bold move for a man who's work was firmly placed within the rock genre.
The resulting album "Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers" is not without it's merits but as a whole it lacks the punch of subsequent releases, the vocals are there, as are the dark lyrics but the music isn't quite there, I think that this might have something to do with use of Fila Brazilia but can't be sure as I don't own a copy of the original demos.
Here is one of the highlights off the album
