Saturday Song to Get Stoned To

Sunday To Clean Your Teeth To

  • Kip Wingerschmidt


A few years ago, an ex-lady Wingerschmidt whose father was a former bigwig at the Colgate (/Palmolive) company told me stories about her dad getting her and her brother to move Colgate toothpaste to the front of the shelves at the pharmacy when they were kids, and her brand loyalty has remained through present day.  My own Papa Wingerschmidt has been a Colgate man for as long as I can remember, but somewhere along the way I switched to the delicious taste of Crest regular-flavored teethpaste.  And I’ve NEVER had a cavity (knock on boner) — coincidence?  Perhaps.  Before I became such a bearded beast I used to use Colgate shaving cream but frankly their paste never quite did it for me.  Palmolive is the shit though!

toothpaste-toothbrush_cartoonAll this is a roundabout way of reminding you to CLEAN YOUR TEETH, folks — no matter what brand you endorse.  And while you’re at it, listen to Brooklyn’s mighty doomsters Cleanteeth.  Featuring current and former members of Goes Cube, Hull, and Godmaker, this is a thick expansive sound that just may loosen your wisdom teeth and eradicate any tartar you may have. Theirs is a fresh take on intelligent doom worthy of your earholes — just fucking do it.

Their solid debut full-length Pushing Rope (release date unknown) is sure to pummel your earholes into sweet sublime submission soon enough, but in the meantime you can check out an album sample of five tracks on Cleanteeth’s Bandcamp page.

Here are a couple live songs from a late February show, followed by a full set (complete with technical difficulties!) from November 2012 when Cleanteeth opened for Eyehategod:
