The Quietus, one of the most influential UK music websites, has announced a series of fundraising gigs this month. The Gum Takes Tooth and Wrangler gigs still have available tickets (as the Pigs/Dawson one has all but sold out – there will be some tickets on the door first come first served).

Sat 13 Jan

Gum Takes Tooth in support of the Quietus ( Tickets from here )

Mighty psychedelic shamans of noise dance, Gum Takes Tooth stage one of their legendary third eye hoedowns with the laudable aim of helping tQ reach (and celebrate) it’s tenth birthday. Support comes from the powerful punk Kraut choogle of Lower Slaughter (like Joan Jett fronting Status Quo in ’74 shot forward in time to a Black Flag gig) and mysterious* acidic occult noise geezer Mighty Lord Deathman. (*He’s not that mysterious. It’s Mat Colegate, ex-Teeth Of The Sea.)

Eight pounds in. Slightly more on the door.
