After 8 years of fuckin' shit up in our shitty city, Tooth & The Enamels has finally called it quits. Why? No one knows. The mystery behind their departure is about as vague as why they formed the band in the first place. Their vomit-laden shows complete with squirting dildos and puking contests have always provided an esoteric release of sorts - a youthful punk as fuck and drunk to boot free-for-all for those willing to explore their inner John Waters. The Enamels created a forum for the deranged to let loose and forget the troubles of high school, parents, the man, etc. It feels like almost yesterday, we were all enamored (or is it enameled?) by their hi-jinx - a testament to the tribal punk inside all of us. Their farewell show saw them go out with a bang and reminded us why we loved them. Hats off to you boys. You will be missed and we will be watching for the next time you drink your own vomit.
