    Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments and bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.

    The group decisively bring together their wildly varied influences of out-there noise, metal, primeval rhythms, spacious psyche, pan-ethnic oddities, primal punk, acid house and vintage electronics on their debut album, 'Silent Cenotaph'. Their incredible live set has found them in high demand, with storming festival sets including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Supersonic and British Wildlife Festival in 2010-11, plus supports with luminaries such as Napalm Death, Melt-Banana, Acid Mothers Temple and Otto Von Schirach.

    Both musicians have enjoyed disparate and involved travails through the musical underground, first playing together in the white noise pop outfit Infants. Brightmore featured in the pioneering I'm Being Good, the improvisational Milche Grand and Blood Stereo with releases on John Olson of Wolf Eyes' American Tapes, Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes' Gods of Tundra and alongside releases by Thurston Moore on Dylan Nyoukis' Chocolate Monk. Brightmore also co-germinated Chrome Hoof from its conception as a trio to multi-limbed prog juggernaut. Meanwhile Fuglesang, previously of Agoskodo Teliverek, now moonlights with Wart Biter and amongst numerous other projects. The track 'Hermaphrodite and Nourishment' features former member Valentina Magaletti (Bat For Lashes/$hit & $hine) providing double drum kit action.
