Twilight Singers - Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

I saw The Twilight Singers three times in 2006. Two of those dates featured the incredible Mark Lanegan. There is nothing sexier than Greg Dulli's voice, in my book, but combined with the genius of's an intense combination.

Watch these boyos tear through a cover of Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night". Leadbelly's version was more downtrodden and mournful, and Nirvana's cover more desperate and frantic. Lanegan, on the other hand, growls out the lyrics with such sinister menace, it's downright frightening. And sexy. His voice sounds like it's been drowned in whiskey and cigarettes and then thrown in the drunk tank with a group of burly men from the Irish Mafia.

Check out a concert clip heeyuh.
