ROLAND SHANKS – Cutting Teeth (7″ Single)

Cutting Teeth CoverMoshi Moshi MOSHI29: 13th February 2006
1. Cutting Teeth
“Sleep with my back to your window, keeps my thoughts inside”
2. Colours
“I don’t mind no, I’ve got time”

This is one of the best singles i’ve heard in a while and eclipses their brilliant first 7″, ‘August’. Although called ‘Cutting Teeth’ the chorus and theme of the song is ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’. It’s a massive athemic song with lyrics infused with a certain Britishness. It also contains an excellent Futureheads style “oo-ah-oo” bit. ‘Colours’ is recorded live in the studio so it isn’t as well produced. It doesn’t seem as good but perhaps with more time it could come good.
