Gum Takes Tooth – Whitechapel Gallery, London – 12/02/10 – Live Review

Originally Published: NME

Gum Takes Tooth are aural terrorists, you are suspected of crimes against logic, and noise is their weapon of mass confusion. It takes but a few seconds for the Hackney-based three-piece to violently assault the senses with what can only be described as the soundtrack to Guantanamo Bay interrogation techniques. Rhythmically abrasive, Thomas Guflesang and Valentina Magaletti eyeball each other over independent drum kits, beating out a paroxysm of tribal drum loops. The war cry comes from Jussi Brightmore who sonically regurgitates a white noise of electronics in fits whilst screaming. Think Lightning Bolt striking twice: pointless.
