gold-teeth-can-see-the-futureWhat? Gold Teeth

I’ve been singing the praises of these guys for ages now and thankfully people are starting to take note including the BBC, Telegraph and Dazed and Confused. Their sound is a really fresh one, a kind of wonky global pop/rock combining elements of calypso, prog, ska, electro and rock. Hard to get your head around? Take a listen to a sample track below. Their perhaps less political but sonically at least I think they’re a better version of The King Blues.
For Fans Of: Gorillaz, The King Blues, Blur, The XX Teens.

Support:

Battant, are one of those bands who are inexplicably not massive, hopefully tonight’s show will go someway to rectifying that leaving the French three piece with another room full of converts. For those yet to be seduced by their dark charms expect to be swept away by their goth tinged electro-rock, that has already mades fans of the likes of Andrew Weatherall. – http://www.myspace.com/battantbattant
For Fans Of: The Stooges, The Velvet Underground, Depeche Mode.

Disasteradio
is computer game obsessed New Zealander Luke Rowell who essentially aims to soundtrack a night driving around town in a flame red Lambourghini with a computer created Kelly LeBrock at your side. It sounds good to me.
For Fans Of: Kraftwerk, Sparks, Neon Neon.

Shock Defeat! a play post-punk disco clatter that’s so good it provoked Felix from Hot Chip to say “I only like one Band in the whole of London and it is you”. Grand praise indeed. It sounds fresh. Kind of like Mark E Smith jamming with DFA.
For Fans Of: The Fall, Talking Heads, DFA.

When? Saturday, May 23rd.

Where? Proud Gallery, Camden.

How Much? £10

Gold Teeth @ Camden Barfly, Feb 09 by musicmule.co.uk

What? Gold Teeth + Crystal Fighters

Gold Teeth are one of the most exciting new bands in London. I was very impressed by their blend of pop, reggae, electro and rock (yep quite a mix but it works!) when I caught them last month. They headline this new Go West club night at The Paradise.
For Fans Of: Gorillaz, Blur, The XX Teens, Team Waterpolo.

Support from Spanish group Crystal Fighters and their ear popping electro. Sounds a little annoying to me though.
For Fans Of: Crystal Castles (you think they’d avoid the Crystal things but no), Soulwax, CSS.

When? Thursday, March 19th.

Where? Paradise, Kensal Rise/Kensal Green.

How Much? £4 each advance but deals available for more tickets/ £5 door

Gold Teeth – Bread and Butter

Tonight the occasion is Gold Teeth’s single launch party for ‘Everybody’ released yesterday through Pure Groove but more to that later.

Voluntary Butler Scheme (VBS) play as main support at this Camden gig getting busier by the minute. VBS is really Rob Jones and his bedroom pop tunes made of admirable loops of guitar, keys, synth and drums and Rob’s tongue-in-cheek vocals. Live however he’s joined by an energetic, pretty shit hot drummer and a less notable third member on keys who if it wasn’t for the occasional movement of his hands, I could swear was a mannequin. Technical trouble means that the band start later than scheduled and have to zip through a set of about five songs. To begin with I’m not won over, songs like ‘Launderette’ fizz along with a mid tempo Beatles meets Beck vibe and get my toe tapping but I can’t help feel I’d be happier listening to it on my headphones on my way home on the tube where I could pick out all the idiosyncrasies a little easier.

His last two songs thankfully manage to take it to the next level though, especially ‘Tabasco Sole’ with it’s catchy ‘stepping in the devil’s shoes’ chorus and winning line ‘if you ever start to feel square wear a De La Soul t-shirt from time to time to make you feel more hip-hop than you are’. It’s fun, it’s clever but it’s not too fresh.

Gold Teeth on the other hand are just that. An EXCITING new London five piece who are hard to pigeonhole musically, which is usually (but not always) a good thing.  Continue reading

What? Gold Teeth

There are some pretty exciting London bands around at the moment but none more so than Wimbledon’s Gold Teeth. They sound like a breath of fresh air, combining indie guitar and vocals with a bit of electro and even afro/reggae influences. This is the launch party for forthcoming single ‘Everybody’ which you can pre-order from Puregroove.

Support comes from the also hotly tipped Voluntary Butler Scheme who uses loops and effects a plenty to relate his tales of towers ( BT & Eiffel) amongst other things!

When? Monday, Feb 23rd.

Where? Camden Barfly.

How Much? £5
