Glasgow's Damn Teeth (featuring current and ex-members of Thin Privilege, Black International and Joanna Gruesome) produce a synth-heavy sound that touches on the dance-noise of Six Finger Satellite, the melodic hysteria of Xiu Xiu and the pop sensibilities of LCD Soundsystem gone sour. In their four years as a band, Damn Teeth have toured the UK twice over, racked up support slots with Future Of The Left, Self Defense Family, Dead Rider and Hop Along amongst others, and have appeared at festivals such as Doune The Rabbit Hole, Shetfest and Restless Natives. Their debut album was released digitally and as a limited-run cassette via Good Grief Records in 2015 - the latter presented in heat-sealed latex packaging.
Lyrically, Real Men takes a deep dive into the horrors of male sexuality and the masculinist mindset, drawing influence from pornography, media coverage of figures such as Larry Nassar and Joseph DeAngelo, and the writings and sound collages of Peter Sotos. In the process of siphoning this Power Electronics-esque subject matter into a pop framework, lead singer/lyricist Paul McArthur explores his own complicity in patriarchal abuse, and attempts to tease out a pro-Feminist message from within the mire. With Real Men, Damn Teeth crawl into the mouth of Men’s Rights culture and explode it from the inside.
TOKYO TEA ROOM (Canterbury)
Tokyo Tea Room are the psych pop lovechild of Canterbury natives Daniel Elliott and Ben Marshall. A meeting of melodic bass lines, hypnotic guitar riffs and dreamy synths form a unique sound with a soulful personality.
With Daniel on guitar/vocals and Ben on bass, the duo is joined by four of their closest friends and fellow musicians. On vocals and keys, Beth Plumb. On Drums, Sam Teather. On Guitar, Ryan Debling. On synth, Graham Nunn.
From the calm countryside to the big smoke, drawing inspiration from wherever life takes them, Daniel writes, records and produces with the band behind the walls of his studio Roswell Recordings.
Female fronted DFLs Lazy Pilgrims are regulars down at the excellent Elsewhere venue in Margate so we had to get them to The Crash Of Moons Club sooner or later didn't we? Expect dreamy vocals floating breathy over audacious guitar lines flirting with 90s rock, dream pop and grunge, all delivered with bags of vibe on the side. The Margate four-piece concoct mesmeric melodies, threaded together amidst expansive choruses in weird, meandering structures. Progressive shoegaze, with excessive pedal-board interaction.
