Here is the bands press release about the up and coming shows...
Teeth Of The Sea, North London’s premier leviathans of psychedelic abandon and transdimensional noiserock supremacy, are set to release their second album, the thrilling and otherworldly ‘Your Mercury’, on Monday November 22nd. To celebrate, they’ve got a series of dates with destiny lined up, at which they’ll be frying synapses on a mighty third-eye-cleansing frenzy fit to transform the chilly metropolis.
The first of this trinity of terror is an instore show at ROUGH TRADE EAST near Brick Lane, on Thursday November 18th, at which Teeth will grind at 7PM. This will actually be the first opportunity to lay hands on a copy of ‘Your Mercury’, which will be in the shakin’ racks early for the occasion.
On Saturday November 20th, the TOTS shocktroops will be returning to DJ at one of their favourite haunts, the Olde Peculiar at THE MUCKY PUP in Islington, where they’ll be spinning the usual delightfully deranged meld of aural treats on the decks. Said DJ deliverance will doubtless include everything from Robyn to Repulsion, from Harry Thumann to Hasil Adkins, and from Cerrone to Cheap Trick. Drinks will flow and blood will spill, and if the boys want to argue about Miles Davis, you better let ‘em.
Perhaps most enticingly of all, however, on the fateful night of November 22nd itself, as ‘Your Mercury’ is properly unleashed on the unsuspecting ears of the world at large, Teeth Of The Sea are hosting the devil’s own launch party at THE LEXINGTON on Pentonville Road. A stellar cast of characters has been hand-picked for the occasion.
Over from Paris especially for the occasion, we have a very rare London show from the amazing, Amazonian HIGH WOLF, whose pyramidal meditations on the Not Not Fun label have blown us away of late, dwelling in an intoxicating, mystical forest of rhythmic, exotic drone somewhere to the east of Pocahaunted and the west of Sun Araw. As if that wasn’t enough, the lupine one will be joined onstage by members of Teeth Of The Sea’s favourite UK band, the Salford psych-savants GNOD. This is set to be an intimidating trip who knows where.
Kicking off the proceedings in style, we’re delighted to have on board London’s own MARIA AND THE MIRRORS. a fearsome and fresh trio who deal in mind-melting psychic invocation and ritualistic abandon. Their percussive, demonic mantras create a mighty and malevolent reverie that evokes Gang Gang Dance, Bow Wow Wow, and the ayahuasca scenes from 'Altered States' in equal measure.
As if all that wasn’t enough, we have delirious, flashback-inducing lights courtesy of the celebrated magus of illusion JOHNNY O and selections from not only our fave spinner of discs, HEIDI HEELZ (Glamracket/Dice Club) but earthly representatives of our favourite website THE QUIETUS.
Tickets for this aural and visual sensory overload are available in advance for a mere four pounds sterling from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/97467 This will be both a gloriously messy evening, and a ceremonial rite to remember. Miss it at yer peril.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 10TH
