Mark Lanegan's voice cannot be mistaken for another. It is gritty and raw, stained with alcohol and cigarettes but can lull you smoother than a Brahms melody. The American baritone is also one of the last original grunge rockers that are still around, but none of the forementioned is his trademark. Throughout his 30 year career, Lanegan has managed to become the voice of Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Trees, UNKLE, Soulsavers, Twilight Singers and more, without ever ceasing to be Mark Lanegan himself. His return to Athens is a much anticipated one, especially since his new album Somebody's Knocking is being released this October, and rock sanctum Gagarin205 is the perfect venue for a night of the blues.
