Chipped Teeth, North American Edition DELUXE

Chipped Teeth is a 7" of improvisations recorded back in 2008, and was released by Slowboy Records in conjunction of our Spring 2008 European Tour. At the time because of time constraints or something, the label was not able to print the artwork in time, releasing the 7" with makeshift one-colour cover art made by the label, with made up titles too.
About one year later, we got the remaining of our copies through the mail and intended to print the original artwork ourselves... well that just took almost two more years! We finally found the time to do it last December.

So here it is, the real version of what Chipped Teeth was supposed to be, available only through the band's merch table at our North American shows. This is a rare recording of the Cities of Glass band at the height of its form.
Limited edition of 50. Come and get it before someone else does it!

Chipped Teeth North American Edition DELUXE will be available for the first time in the Land of the Free during our Spring 2011 Tour.

And for those wondering, those who already have the 7" or a digital bootleg ripped straight from the 7", here are THE REAL CREDITS AND SONG TITLES that were originally intended to be in there (no, it's not "Germans Know Where It's At" and "Yes We Do" or something, trust me):

In Their Own Words: AIDS Wolf and SHOW!

In Their Own Words: AIDS Wolf

A collage of multiple interviews about AW, including a lot of talk about our creative process, with Chloe and Alex. Produced by Martin Simon Greizis, who also happens to be doing sound at the Casa Del Popolo once in a while. Part of a series on different local Montreal bands, originally broadcasted on CKUT during the Montreal Sessions show, and then syndicated at a bunch of different places. You should check out some of the other interviews that were done a part of this series, especially Dirty Beaches.


Talking of the Casa, we are playing there on Friday February 25 in a sort of Badmaster Records showcase with Ultrathin, Satanized, Drums Like Machine Guns and Dead Wife. This is actually a realease of a Ultrathin 7" on Badmaster, and at the same time I guess a commemorative show of the 1 year anniversary of the release of our split 7" with Satanized on the same label.

Coincidence is that the 25th of February 2011 is the 41st anniversary of Mark Rothko's Suicide---- Evan from Satanized mentioned the possibility of them doing a cover of Rothko chapel by Morton Feldman... If they do so that would be quite a feat!

Here are short descriptions of the event and release as provided by the label:

"GLASS CITY" b/w "DON'T MESS" is the debut 7" by Montreal palm punk trio ULTRATHIN. Two over-the-top, power punk anthems, barely contained within the grooves of this vinyl disc. Like a cherry red bullet ripping down the same high-way The Stooges & Mayyors used to get to the bank and back. Twisted, over-blown guitars, oozing bass sleaze, the relentless pounding of drums and a manic freak behind the mic, power this rock-n-ripper. 1st pressing of 300 on black vinyl on Badmaster Records.

BADMASTER RECORDS are a Philadelphia based label that have put out records by some of the current heaviest hitters in noise rock (such as AIDS Wolf, Drunkdriver / Mattin, Shit & Shine, Mutators and Pop. 1280 among others), as well as some of Philadelphia's best underground acts of recent times (Tickley Feather, Satanized, Hot Guts, Serpents of Wisdom, Drums Like Machine Guns, Mincemeat Or Tenspeed). Last year, they also released a free online digital compilation called "DIS-ADELPHIA," which features tracks by Philadelphia acts such as U.S. Girls, Birds Of Maya, Women, Hot Guts, Satanized, Drums Like Machine Guns and many others (available for download at
