Today's band Broken Teeth is not what you would call Stoner Rock or really anything remotely close to it, but what this band does do is rock your freakin' head off. I have always been a fan of bands such as AC/DC (the first band I ever saw live), Rhinobucket, The Four Horsemen, etc. and Broken Teeth has done a tremendous job of paying tribute to those previously mentioned bands. Their new album "“Viva la Rock, Fantastico!” features 13 blistering specimens of pure kick ass, in-your-face all out rock n'roll.
Broken Teeth formed in Austin, Texas, in 1999 when Jason McMaster (Watchtower and Dangerous Toys) recruited former members of Dangerous Toys, Dirty Looks and Pariah for a side project that allowed band members to have some fun indulging their dirty rock influences including AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Circus of Power and The Four Horsemen.
More than a decade later, Broken Teeth has firmly established its own tattered and frayed identity with a discography that includes the self-titled debut, “Guilty Pleasure,” “Blood on the Radio” and “Electric.”
Helping Broken Teeth fan the “Fantastico!” flames is blood-sweating Canadian rocker, Danko Jones. The rock-n-roll outlaw from the Great White North lends backup vocals to the album’s tequila-spiked title track as well as the shout-along stormer, “Big Spender.”
If you like your rock music, loud, fast and hard, then check out Broken Teeth. You will not be disappointed.
