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
