Baby Teeth’s Final Show: The Last Schmaltz

After a decade of service to the international light-rock community, Baby Teeth are hanging up their golf shoes, as bassist Jim Cooper relocates to LA to pursue a new career as a film composer. But first, they’ll drive the ol’ Lamborghini Countach off the cliff in one more blaze of glory. In other words, one … Continue reading

“White Tonight” Record Release Show — Friday March 2nd!

In the melodramatic vein of LCD Soundsystem’s “Losing My Edge,” Sloan’s “Fading Into Obscurity,” and Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd., Baby Teeth present their new LP White Tonight, a look into growing old(er) ungracefully in indie rock.  The band celebrates with a headlining slot at Schubas, Friday March 2nd, joined by Outer Minds and Bobby … Continue reading

His Songs Were Good

It’s retro week here at 52 Teeth.  This new recording, “His Songs Were Good”, showcases a song that I wrote a long time ago.  Maybe 1998.  Remember Lewinsky, the blue dress, etc.?  Around that time.  The lyrics are a true story about someone I knew back in high school who was an extraordinary songwriter — … Continue reading

World of Nothing

Yes, friends, I’m emerging from winter hibernation for the purpose of delivering some nihilistic bedroom garage-pop, “World of Nothing”.  I was aiming for something in the vein of the Velvet Underground’s White Light/White Heat.  When I was finished I thought the end result wasn’t grimy enough.  And I still think that.  But…. after listening to … Continue reading

Welcome to Our World

While Jim trots the globe (or at least, the European continent) with Bobby Conn, Peter and I keep the home fires burning.  Things have been getting so slow lately, and my mind has been getting so peaceful, that I actually stopped to think that we had a BAND WEBSITE, and that I hadn’t touched it … Continue reading

Beautiful When We Were Young

Hello all.  Click here to link to my latest contribution to Chicago Public Radio’s Re:sound.  I’d recommend listening to the whole show, since it rips as always, but… my song starts at roughly 52:30, should you be short on time, like so many of the kids today.

Goodbye, Sweet June

Yes, June, you hath come and gone, without a single new post on 52 Teeth.  The depths of my shame are unfathomable.  I can only offer the following, middling excuse: I’ve been engaged in the joyous labor of preparing for the second episode of Shame That Tune, and for my second appearance on Chicago Public … Continue reading

Deliverance Day

Like Bryan Adams, I’m asking you to “please forgive me” in my delinquency this week.  With the holiday weekend, I completely forgot that Monday morning had come and gone without a new post.  I hope my negligence didn’t spoil your Memorial Day.  With or without a new song, veggie dogs still taste weird, right? I’m … Continue reading
