Broken Teeth : "Bulldozer"
Broken Teeth - hard rock with dental issues? Nah, it's the "loud & dirty rock band" fronted by Jason McMaster, former singer of Dangerous Toys.
1. How has the reaction to your latest CD been?
2.How long did this CD take to make from start to finish, recording-wise?
If you add up the hours, about a week, but, we recorded and mixed over a period of a few months. Devil on the Road, and Flamethrower had been previously released. We record songs in batches, a few at a time.
3.What kind of 'sound', production wise, did you have in the back of your mind, prior to entering the studio?
Jared (Broken teeth guitarist) is our engineer/producer, so he/we already know what this band is supposed to sound like. If the tones of anything sounds strange to us, no one asks "do you like that sound"? Its just a known mold we fit our sound into.
4.What kind of input did the producer have during the process?
See above answer. Jared writes the songs along with us. He knows.
5.And are you pleased with the final outcome? (sound - production wise)
Since it was put together from a few different sessions, there are a couple of differences in tones, but, it is still very consistent.
6.Did the producer use any (weird) experimental miking and/or recording techniques?
Nothing weird. Weird doesn't scare us, but sometimes weird doesnt work. Tried and True works great.
7.How did you go on about capturing your 'live sound' in the studio, or perhaps you didn't?
The live sound ,in my opinion, is just the energy you have in front of an audience. Only way to get that is play your songs live and figure out what is missing, before you enter the studio.
8.Please inform us about your favourite songs and lyrical highlights and why?
This ep ,lyrically, pays homage to some of my fave rock personas, like Lemmy, Steven Tyler and more. Lyrically, I feel like I gave a nodd to these guys, with the Motorhead cover of "The Hammer", and the cover of "Lightnings Strikes", but even more so in the Teeth songs, "My fist your face" thats a Tyler lyric, "I gotta voice like a Marshall stack", is not a direct borrow from Lemmy, but close. Made these songs alot of fun for me personally.
9.Any overall theme of mood that you're trying to capture while writing songs?
True Hard Rock moments in time.
10.Does your vision for coming up with music get affected at all by time?
Not sure what you mean.
11.Did the record company interfere with anything on your "sound" and songs?
They know what theyre getting before they even press play. So, not a peep out of anyone about our sound or direction.
12.Are there any 'crazy' behind the scenes anecdotes from these sessions that you can share with us?
Pretty much in and out, some of us were there by ourselves recording at one point. No drama to speak of.
13.How would you describe the sound of your new CD to any potential new fan?
Loud dirty rock n roll.
14.Who are your influences and heroes? (music-wise)
Motorhead, Metallica, Judas Priest, Danko Jones, Kiss, ACDC.
