Description

Ascension presents
Gum Takes Tooth(Rocket Recordings UK)
w/ special guests BB84

Doors 8pm / €10

"A consistently blistering live outfit, the duo of Jussi Brightmore
and drummer Tom Fug crated Gum Takes Tooth in 2009 and quickly
established a unique approach whereby drum-triggered electronics
are manipulated to achieve a dynamic, rhythmically driven and
flagrantly unclassifiable fury that has flirted with both speaker-ripping
psych-rock pyrotechnics and synapse-shredding acid house
deliverance whilst stubbornly avoiding any of the trappings or
cliches of either.
Forging their own distinct geometric trajectory through two
albums in 2011’s ‘Silent Cenotaph’ and 2014’s ‘Mirrors Fold’,
their polyrhythmic sleight-of-hand proved itself as much a strength
as their unique take on vocal processing. Thus, the band mapped
out a landscape in which the influences of Coil, Warp Records,
The Knife and Lightning Bolt were alchemically transformed into
an innovative and pulverising onslaught.
Mavericks to the last, perpetual square-pegs and a band intent
on forging onward to break all or any paradigms before them,
Gum Takes Tooth have created a collection of kinetic anthems
to battle everyday oppression their forthcoming album, ‘Arrow’;
a searing and visceral work of machine-driven mania suffused
by melancholy and elegiac atmosphere with its very human heart
onits sleeve.
The band have played amazing sets at Supersonic Festival (UK),
CTM Festival Berghain (DE) and Villette Sonique Grand Halle
de Villette (FR).
The new album ‘Arrow’ is due on 25th of January 2018
via Rocket Recordings."
