Gum Takes Tooth: Pre-order 'Silent Cenotaph' (out 6th June) now and get another album free!
21 Apr 2011
Gum Takes Tooth are getting set to release their debut album 'Silent Cenotaph' on 6th June through Tigertrap Records, so we've set up a nice little 2-for-1 deal on all pre-orders through our shop.
Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments and bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.
The group decisively bring together their wildly varied influences of out-there noise, metal, primeval rhythms, spacious psyche, pan-ethnic oddities, primal punk, acid house and vintage electronics on their debut album, 'Silent Cenotaph'. Tracklisting here:
1. Young Mustard
2. Strychnine Motive
3. The Earth's Mantle Colonised
5. Peace in Your Middle Yeast
7. Rise From the Peat and Walk
8. Hermaphrodite and Nourishment
