Teeth Union - The debut album, out now!!!

Thanking Off 2010

December 28th, 2010

At Rough Trade East, by Jess Morgan

Ice, Sea, Dead People toured twice this year, reclaimed one of their founding-members from the United States, co-released an album with Lost Toys Records, wrote lots of new stuff that you’ll be able to hear next year and, most notably in this news entry, developed a united, democratic voice.

Ice, Sea, Dead People would like to thank the following who helped them this year:

Ash Pocock & Undress to Win Press, Andy Holden, Lost Toys, Daniel Moss, Paul Cox, Tom Robinson, Ash Dosanjh, Shelby Cinca, Gideon Coe, Tom Whalley, everyone at Wysing Art Centre, Everyone to the Anderson, Guy Henderson, Klaus Märtens, Craig at Cargo Records, Yuri Landman plus everyone who bought our stuff, put us on, put us up, played us out and helped us fuck shit up. Let’s do it again, but louder…

P.S. If we missed you out then buy our album for a more comprehensive thank you list.

‘Teeth Union’ reviews so far…

November 2nd, 2010

You may have seen us in the press recently, we’ve been lucky to get some column inches for ‘Teeth Union’ from the NME, Rock-Sound, Loud & Quiet, etc. as well as hitting the radiowaves. Check it out:

Ice, Sea, Dead People - 'Teeth Union' review NME. "This meaty debut from punning devils Ice, Sea, Dead People conjures just the kind of gloriously primal racket you'd expect from a Bedford trio that describe themselves as "east angular mammal noise". Post-hardcore righteousness bolstered by agit-punk is what powers 'Teeth Union' and the mind-bending brouhaha it whips up. Amid the carefully ordered chaos of raucous early single, 'Hence:Elvis', 'My Twin Brother's A Brother' and 'Until We Break Our Legs' one detects the expert influence of Shellac bassist Bob Weston, who mastered the album. Still lamenting Erase Errata, Fugazi and Untitled Musical Project? This could heal your heart." 8/10

Gig Pick - NME. "From the depths of the belly of noisedom comes an aural onslaught more powerful than a kick in the nads. London three-piece Ice, Sea, Dead People return to the gig circuit in the run up to the release of their post-punk art-noise debut album 'Teeth Union'."

Loud And Quiet Review. ""From the initial ear-twisting note of this thunderous record it becomes blindingly obvious that it wll not find favour with the aging chattering classes who loudly grumble that, "Music isn't as good now as it was in my day", because those keen on luscious melodies will soon be shaken into a quivering, deply scarred wreck by a continual stream of spiky edged mathematical discordance that hurtles by faster than a Japanese Bullet train. 'Justin Klein' may have a traditional, counted-in intro but like 'Hence:Elvis' and every other song contained on this album it is fiercely abrasive, manically chaotic and fantastically riff heavy. 'Teeth Union' will not bring any mainstream awards towards ISDP but at least they can be proud that they have created a short, sharp record that gleefully jumps over the barriers and brings other to an instant halt."

Online press:

“This album works as an explanation of exactly why this tense, chaotic guitar attack is always so much fun, no matter how much it hurts. It makes a hero of every kid who can turn their guitar up too loud.”
The Quietus

“Theirs is music for audiences ready to embrace tinnitus. Theirs is a racket that attracts plaudits full of adjectives like “angular”, “abrasive” and “artsy”. Which is, obviously, a brilliant thing; a messy, sketchy, scrambled puzzle of pirouetting riffs and clattering percussion, with vocals atop like rotten cherries, sticky-sweet to the touch but sure to leave a bad taste in the mouth and a pain in the guts.”

“Ice, Sea, Dead People are clearly not fans of the predictable or safe.There’s enough energy in these pre-packaged twenty-five minutes to power a small country for a year. It makes me want to throw myself across rooms and jump and jerk along with the angular, disjointed noise pouring through my speakers.”
The Line of Best Fit

“An accomplished debut album in a genre that can be very hard to ‘crack.’”
This is Fake DIY

“Keepin’ it punk, energetic and spontaneous in all areas.”

“Teeth Union’s nine feedback-laden bony punk compositions played too hard and too loud with practically unintelligible lyrics are seriously pleasing things; think White Light/White Heat if it had been recorded in the 21st century by irritated art-schoolers with a budget.”
The Skinny

“Almost plumbing No Wave depths of deconstruction at times, the band’s scathing post-hardcore racket reveals an obsession with smashing both rhythmic conventions and listener expectations.”
Alternative Ulster

John Peel Day

September 27th, 2010

From The Line of Best Fit:

“This year’s John Peel Day celebrations in London are taking place on Saturday the 9th of October at Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes (in the basement of the Tavistock Hotel). With an awe inspiring collection of over thirty bands and DJ’s lining up to help celebrate John’s life and legacy. Whether it’s some of John’s favourites like Bearsuit , an acoustic set from Miss Black America or some new faces like Superman Revenge Squad, Nedry or Ice, Sea, Dead People – that you know he would have loved – there’s plenty there for everyone.

The event is hoping to raise £2500 for the DEC charity, so come along and have a great time whilst supporting a worthy cause. For more details click here.”
