Police Teeth

If naming songs were an Olympic sport, the necks of Police Teeth would be glowing with gold. Thankfully, jams like "Taking A Shit On Company Time" and "Bob Stinson Will Have His Revenge On Ferndale" aren't just great punchlines; they totally eclipse their nomenclature. Taking inspiration from that no-excess, reactionary school of 80's college punk, Police Teeth write catchy, riff-heavy punk songs that come from a blue collar, utilitarian mindset. Their songs are as meat and potatoes as they come, stripped of delay pedals, keyboard flourishes, and all of the excess fat that covers up the actual heart and purpose of the song. A typical Police Teeth show will more than likely involve some PBR cans being crushed mid-air, some fist pumping, perhaps some spitting, and a bunch of hairy, sweaty bodies ramming into each other; in other words, all the good stuff with none of the bullshit. With Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death, Victory and Associates, DJ Heather Hydra. GREGORY FRANKLIN
