Gum Takes Tooth - TRI

Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments, bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.

In fresh sonic territory located between the noise-rock attack of Lightning Bolt and the galactic frequency exploration of the Silver Apples, the group decisively bring together their influences of out-there noise, grunge rock and vintage electronics on their second record, TRI. Released on clear, triangle-shaped 10” vinyl, planted cosily within hand-built screen-printed reflective sleeves, it contains the tracks 'Strychnine Motive' and 'Rise From the Peat and Walk', and is limited to only 40 copies.

Both musicians have enjoyed disparate and involved travails through the musical underground, first playing together in the white noise pop outfit Infants. Brightmore featured in the pioneering I'm Being Good, the improvisational Milche Grand and Blood Stereo with releases on John Olson of Wolf Eyes' American Tapes, Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes' Gods of Tundra and alongside releases by Thurston Moore on Dylan Nyoukis's Chocolate Monk. Brightmore also co-initiated multi-limbed prog cabaret juggernaut Chrome Hoof. Meanwhile, Fuglesang moonlights with Agoskodo Teliverek and Wart Biter, amongst numerous other projects. Gum Takes Tooth are also regularly joined for live double-drum kit action by Bat For Lashes/$hit & $hine member Valentina Magaletti.
