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

In perfect harmony with the upcoming Chicago mayoral election, Baby Teeth brings you “BOSS”, a digital EP that you can download for FREE right here. For this album, Baby Teeth took a band challenge.

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

Too Hot to Rock

Something in the air today made me want to make some STOOPID electro-rock, so here is this week’s entry, “Too Hot to Rock.”  Lara asked me if this was meant as a tribute to LCD Soundsystem.  Hm…. well, maybe so.  I can’t say that I’m a devoted fan or anything, but I did enjoy the … Continue reading

Shame That Tune

Here’s my first attempt at writing a theme song for my new game show, “Shame That Tune“, which debuts on Friday June 11th, at the Hideout, here in Chicago USA.  The concept of the show, which will be co-hosted by the irrepressible Brian Costello, is as follows: Three contestants, one by one, tell a quick, … Continue reading

Depression Jig

With this week’s jaunty number, “Depression Jig,” 52 Teeth is goin’ country, y’all.  I woke up on Saturday morning with the Stones song “Dead Flowers” in my head.  Mick’s reference to “makin’ bets on Kentucky Derby day” makes it an anthem back in my home state, and here it was, at long last, the first … Continue reading

The Entertainer 2.0

Oh, thank heaven for band practice.  Last week, I was tired, Jim was sick as a dawg, and Peter was in the midst of a longstanding battle with mucous.  I trotted out last week’s blog track, “The Entertainer,” and things were going okay, but there was no lightning in the air.  Seemed like it’d be … Continue reading
