THERAPY? - BABYTEETH


Label - Wiiija
Released 1991

Therapy? (Questionmark) - WTF? Stick with me folks. Before Therapy? ventured into JARB territory (Just Another Rock Band) they released a couple of great E.P.'s before the album Nurse and the eponymous Teethgrinder song. Both rock hard with elements of industrial & noise. If you've not heard early Therapy? before then give this a shot as I wouldn't be posting this hear unless I felt it fitted in. The original drummer could always be seen wearing his beloved Jesus Lizard T-Shirt when they played live. Stand outs here are Punishment Kiss & Animal Bones.

just another rock band? I respectfully disagree. though by comparison of the first 2 ep's they've mellowed with age but they still manage to produce some interesting stuff from time to time. the most recent 3 albums for example.

anyway, awesome post thank you.

Back in the day everything for me had to be noisy & nasty hence the comment. Though I was a big fan & enjoyed parading my Teethgrinder T-Shirt back then just to weird out workmates! Thanks for the heads up, I'll check out their recent stuff

Hello anonymous. I don't have that 7" but I do have a live Xmas 7" of Undertones/U2 cover songs plus a fan club cassette of them live in Japan (4 songs including Teethgrinder)

I was obsessed with T? while a young teenager, babyteeth, Pleasure Death, Nurse Troublegum & Infernal Love have been engraved on my brain from listening to them so much. I kinda lost interest when Fyfe left, feeling - like you- that they just became N.E.Other rock band. I have since revisited the later albums and I've gotta say after a few listens some of them are proper good. Especially the stuff with Neil Cooper from the Beyond on beats. His playing style is pretty similar to the missing Mr Ewing's. Check out Semi-Detached, Never apologize-never explain and Crooked Timber. The others are good but these three stand out to me. (Crooked timber, for me anyways, sounds the most like a classic T? sound I've heard since Infernal love. It's maybe just the recycled bass line on the title track....)
