» Reviews: The Great Escape – Gum Takes Tooth

Record label idiots: you should have been at this gig. Forget your pant-wetting folk hipsters, simplistic synth goons and lame chillwave. Gum Takes Tooth represent all that is uncommercial, unpalatable and puts the ‘great’ in Great Escape. The drums and sampler duo confounded possible expectations of eighties foolishness with a madly heavy half hour of doom metal meets dubstep meets stoner rock, punk and anything else noisy in-between. Eardrum-bursting, complicated drumming burst into black metal screeches and F*ck Buttons electronic dissonance as perhaps the heaviest band you could see at this year’s event, with or without guitars, immediately stole the show.

One Response to “Reviews: The Great Escape – Gum Takes Tooth”

  1. Gum Takes Tooth Says:

    Thanks for the lovely review.

    Just wanted to clear one thing up. We don’t use a sampler or any samples. It’s all drums and synthesizer and vocals. But at least you didn’t copy the description from the Great Escape programme which said something about “mashing it up on the decks”. No idea where they got that from.

Would you like to comment?

» Brighton Lights 31

Our new programme for sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to
