Perfect TEETH



Teen-beat are re-releasing Unrest's PERFECT TEETH, no cheap jewel case shenanigans mind, but a beautifully boxed collection of six coloured 7 inch records with extra tracks. Hats off to you Marky Robinson… it looks so lush… if I wasn’t so strapped I’d grab one off you…

Really loved this album back in the day, shit that was a long time ago must be 17 years, seems like yesterday... those poppy hooks and that jangled sizzle, grabbing the focus, simple songs full of mileage. Now Imperial FFRR will always stay with me as their greatest work, but this was genius of a different kind, surfing on the right side of commercial, that Simon Le Bon production guaranteeing true earworm deployment…

A true pinnacle of achievement and so f’ing danceable in places, it showed that indie music didn’t have to be miserable to be sincere.… even if I did do plenty of mopping to stylised ampersand... Pity it marked the last big release for the band, even though it did set the template for the equally amazing Air Miami. Quality!
