Will perform at Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee on July 13… Talks collaboration with The Church's Steve Kilbey... Leaves door open for more Whigs
Greg Dulli will be celebrating his past at Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee this summer in Seattle, but the Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers leader is also planning for a prodigious musical future.
"I write songs all the time, so I've got a ton around -- a couple hours' worth, at least," Dulli tells Billboard. But, he adds, he's not sure what he'll be using any of them for yet. "They're me, and right now I really like when songs are kind of stripped-down and haven't been put through a band machine yet. They're very kind of pure and innocent, and I want to perform them this way before or if I decide to run them through a band machine. I have a studio in my house and I'm happy not rolling all over the world for a little while and just kind of hanging out and living my life and watching baseball games and taking walks."
The Sub Pop celebration is set for July 13 -- "They're my family, man, a significant portion of my life," Dulli says of the label and its principals. He plans to roll out some of his new songs at the show, where he'll be accompanied by guitarist Dave Rosser and multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson. It’s Dulli's only show planned for this year, so far.
