Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan's solo albums are sufficiently dissimilar in tone from those of his regular group, Screaming Trees, to make listeners wonder where his true interests lie. His records often employ a much more acoustic tone, and address much more serious, personal concerns. Despite ample critical acclaim, Lanegan always kept the Screaming Trees his primary concern (that is, until their breakup). The original plan for Lanegan's first solo recording was to do an EP of blues songs with Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and Chris Novoselic, as well as Screaming Trees drummer Mark Pickerel. That didn't work out, and The Winding Sheet ended up being recorded with Pickerel, guitarist Mike Johnson (later bassist in Dinosaur Jr.), and noted producer Jack Endino on bass. Released in 1990, the album included a cover of the Leadbelly folk number "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" from the aborted sessions with Cobain and Novoselic; it became the basis for Nirvana's version on MTV Unplugged. Despite a good reception from the underground, it took until 1994 for Lanegan's brilliantly assured follow-up, Whiskey for the Holy Ghost, to surface, which again featured Johnson in a prominent role. Afterwards, Lanegan once again returned to Screaming Trees for what proved to be the band's final album, 1996's Dust. With the Trees on hiatus, Lanegan resumed his solo career with 1998's Scraps at Midnight, which followed in the vein of its predecessors. The follow-up appeared much more quickly this time; 1999's I'll Take Care of You was a quietly stunning covers album drawing on Lanegan's interest in roots music. Two years later, Field Songs arrived.

In November of 2003, after a short stint as vocalist with Queens of the Stone Age (he sang on the album Songs for the Deaf and appeared as part of the subsequent tour), the newly formed Mark Lanegan Band released Here Comes That Weird Chill: Methamphetamine Blues, Extras, and Oddities, an EP that anticipated the Lanegan Band's first full-length album, Bubblegum. Featuring guest appearances from Polly Jane Harvey, the Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli, Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri of QOTSA, and former Guns N' Roses members Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan, Bubblegum was released in August of 2004. In 2008, Lanegan, who had at this point been collaborating on and off with QOTSA and recorded albums with Belle & Sebastian's Isobel Campbell (2006's Ballad of the Broken Seas, 2008's Sunday at Devil Dirt) and the Soulsavers (2007's It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land), released Saturnalia as part of the duo the Gutter Twins (whose other member was none other than Greg Dulli, with whom he'd been touring as part of Dulli's outfit the Twilight Singers for the past couple of years). 2012's Blues Funeral found Lanegan drawing inspiration from the past six years, and included appearances by Dulli and Josh Homme. Recorded in Hollywood by Eleven's Alain Johannes, the album was released on February 7, 2012. His next project was a collaborative album with iconoclastic multi-instrumentalist and composer Duke Garwood. Entitled Black Pudding, it was issued by Ipecac in May of 2013. Lanegan returned later that year to release a collection of cover versions. Entitled Imitations, it touchingly featured songs that he remembered from his childhood, it included versions of songs by artists such as Neil Diamond, Hall & Oates, Neil Sedaka as well as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and The Twilight Singers. ~ Richie Unterberger & Steve Huey, Rovi

Very cool

Fantastic music, And I'm not quite sure why trigun fans are a fan of Lanegan, but it seems to be the case. The beast in me, is a great song to compare to the challenges that Vash must face. Dark, and vibrant, this music really speaks to me.
More depressing drivel.
Anything he does is awesome. He could sing twinkle twinkle little star and it would be cool
No mention of his collaboratio n with Soulsavers here
Just saw him in concert last night in San Francisco... . AMAZING!!! he threw in a an old Scream Trees song in the middle.

The BUBBLEGUM album was one of the coolest releases I've heard EVER!
I was @ 432 am. Listening, and, and was just wondering what kind of motor vehicle mark has parked outside. ( 78 eldorado ? 76 corvair ? ) a man that can more than likely cab it everywhere, now that i think ? one cant drive when one has pen to paper as much as he has to. but you Shay, could just assk Mom. mr. Shay, one day i am comin thru that rite-aid Drive thru. i will call from my 78 nissan pick-up, 3 colors and all.
Love his music. I live in Ellensburg now and go to the University and work at the local Rite Aid. His mother comes in all the time to talk to me. He'll be playing at the Gorge soon, I can't wait to see him!
Read that the Trees last (dust) was scrapped many times before final production, after Sweet Oblivion i can understand why, few bands can claim even one masterpiece. (Beatles, The Who, Zepplin,) no b-sides. I need a smoke, out.
Met him when I was 10 years old at his cousins house,mocked his then garage sounding trees tape he played us,several years later he's now my favorite singer,wheth e r with the trees,Q.O.T. S . A , g u t t e r twins,isobel campbell,or solo.who knew? ha ha
The more i listen to him, the better it gets- all of it, Screaming Trees through the most recent Isobel Campbell disc- love it all
@ triqun666: Under-apprec i a t e d ? No.
Weird coincidence. . . . n e v e r knew that..oh well, good have a good mix of interests!!A l t h o u g h Vash and Lanegan have nothing in common..
Interesting to note how many "Trigun" fans like his music...coun t another for me then.
mark lanegan is under-apprec i a t e d . . s u c h a great voice..every song sounds dark and foreboding.. . . .
the gutter twins are worth checking out!
"The greatest singer/songw r i t e r to exist."

hahahaha

...sure
The greatest singer/songw r i t e r to exist.
I can't believe they haven't added Bubblegum to the discography. One of his best albums yet and now 5 years old...

He is the most under appreciated artist of our time. Everything he does is amazing. I have seen him with QOTSA and as the Gutter Twins. I hold my breath every time in hopes it never ends.
Listen to The Winding Sheet angel of anarchy. It is a beautiful album... His other solo work isn't for everybody, but Winding Sheet is timeless...
Lanegan is music. Listening to him makes one appreciate the artist in a very honest and real way. His music encompasses all emmotion in a simplistical l y complex, original manner. His solo work, the Gutter Twins and anything he does with QOTSA is created in a such a way that true musicians should aspire to attain the inherent qualities that make his music great.
Marks newest project, The Gutter Twins, in which he teams with Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, is amazing. Mark and Greg worked together on several Twilight Singers projects as well. If you like Mark or anything else he has done, you HAVE to check out The Gutter Twins and Twilight Singers
Amazing. I have seen him live 3 times, going again in about a month to see the Gutter Twins. The most twisted, bourbon wracked voice of distress that has ever recorded a song. Live is a spiritual experience.

Back when Screaming Trees were making music, the only thing that stuck out in my mind was the voice. I have since discovered other things by Mark Lanegan and find his voice to be the most haunting and painful beautiful thing out there.
