Very Limited 7" single
Raised on a diet of Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode, New Order, Fad Gadget and
A Certain Ratio, Gemma Cullingford's own trajectory has been equally impressive –
from playing bass with Blast First/Mute signings Kaito, and more recently as one
half of post-punk electronic dance duo Sink Ya Teeth. This solo offering further adds
to her fine body of work.
2020 saw Sink Ya Teeth having to abandon many live gigs and promotion for their
second album, so during the band's downtime Gemma worked purposefully in her
home studio on solo works of a more personal nature, the first fruits being this
double A sided single. An album entitled "Let Me Speak" will follow in the summer
"Wide Boys" is a menacing disco call to action; "It's a message to the average man
and woman on the street, many of whom seems to have been brainwashed by both
those in power and by the far right. It's saying that every single one of us are being
controlled as part of a big, sinister game. This is a response to my own awakening
to that" she explains.
"104" is an instrumental electronic jam for feet, limbs and loose minds. "The idea
behind 104 came from wanting to start off with real sounding drums that subtly
evolve into pure electro over 3 or 4 minutes".
