about

Gum Takes Tooth, the London duo of Jussi Brightmore and drummer Tom Fug unique approach whereby manipulated drum-triggered electronics achieve a dynamic, rhythmically driven and flagrantly unclassifiable fury that flirts with both speaker-ripping psych-rock pyrotechnics and synapse-shredding acid house delivered avoiding any of the trappings or clichés of either.

Borrowed Lies (Radio Edit), the second track to be released from bands debut Rocket album ‘Arrow’ is a three and a half minute rhythmically driven stomp like a heavy strobing LCD Soundsystem from the future.

“It concerns the small change victories and comforts our culture portions out to us to placate us and prevent action towards change - the lie of self-empowerment and paranoia is the ‘weapon offered as a gift’”elucidates Jussi the bands singer. “It ends with a call to arms to look inward to find the weapon to overcome this”.

The stunning b-side of this single is a ‘rework’ of Borrowed Lies by Italian astral-voyaging collective Lay Llamas. Led by Nicola Giunta, he has masterly produced an afrofuzz cosmic funk rework as a travelogue powered by a pan-global tribal fascination with rhythmic hypnosis and an unquenchable experimental mindset.

The track centres around an addictive percussive groove and climaxes with a heavily overdriven fuzzed organ that create a psychedelic mantra in the vein of some of the early 1970’s tracks from Ethiopiques series albums.

Gum Takes Tooth are mavericks to the last, perpetual square-pegs and a band intent on forging onward to break all or any paradigms before them, creating a collection of kinetic anthems to battle everyday oppression - a work of machine-driven mania with its very human heart on its sleeve.

about

Gum Takes Tooth London, UK

Two man everything machine endlessly seeking what-the-fuck aural mesmerism in a maze like arrangement of sound system culture, riffs and pan-cultural psychedelics. Dark primal frequencies are felt and not heard, unremitting circular drums shatter and rebirth whilst vocals provide an astral guide through dizzying new sound worlds. ... more
