Russell Cook & the Sweet Teeth

Russell Cook & the Sweet Teeth began as a two-guitar and drums juke-joint style trio, before gradually morphing into an exploratory rock band featuring the sparkling guitar work of Scotty Knight and ace drummer Jeremy Clark. The Sweet Teeth play new songs, traditional songs, as well as playing songs drawn from the extensive catalog of music written by Russell for the Little Country Giants. They try to push the music to see where it will go, using songs as the structure, but staying open to improvisation and playing in the moment. Russell Cook & the Sweet Teeth use sharp-edged songwriting to open up a vein of Americana that veers from electrified country blues to bombastic cosmic rock. This is Russell Cook and The Sweet Teeth.
