From Brighton in England: Ross Robertson (Vocals / Guitar), Larry Marks (Vocals / Bass) and Simon Gledhill (Vocals / Guitar) – who are looking for a full time drummer – form the psychedelic-garage outfit Teetotum.
You know that moment when you are watching a spool of thread unravel in-front of you to disappear into the far distance? Teetotum too play with guitar strings stretching to the far horizon and what a joy it is. The elasticity of the strings gives Teetotum the warm feeling of four track analogue recordings and taken in combination with vocals one can’t help but call to mind The Kinks and consequentially want to spend more time in their company.
Although there are only five tracks available to hear for those who don’t have the opportunity to hear them live in their regular local performances – on the basis of the recorded material, it is little surprise they are generating their own hot-spot.
My only hope is that Teetotum are able, swiftly, to discover a full time drummer as the skins do form an integral part of the out-put.
From the four track EP – Mind Your Teeth which came out last month and is available on bandcamp – the opener Night & Day.
