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. Released 25th January 2019, their album ‘Arrow’ “taps back into a post-punk sense of dread and sonic freedom. It’s a totally modern sound with a vintage driven sense of disconnectedness to everything else.” – The Wire Magazine, Jan 2019
