Herald Sun - Hit - - THE HIT LIST -

The hu­man voice is the most in­cred­i­ble in­stru­ment of all. No two are truly alike. We kid­ded our­selves Michael Jack­son sang Lisa It’s Your Birth­day on The Simp­sons but we all knew deep down it wasn’t MJ (con­firmed by cre­ator Matt Groen­ing many years back) be­cause the tim­bre was just a lit­tle cheesy. For­mer Scream­ing Trees’ front­man and ir­re­press­ible solo artist Mark Lanegan sings as if he’s be­ing led to the guil­lo­tine, a grav­elly mix be­tween Bryan Adams and Alice In Chains’ Layne Sta­ley. He’s given his all to col­lab­o­ra­tions with Moby, UNKLE, Warpaint, Mas­sive At­tack and Queens Of the Stone Age and knocked out 15 solo al­bums; all dark night of the soul. The Crox­ton, 607 High St, Thorn­bury. Sat, 8pm. $69.90.
