There Were Wires: His Talk Her Teeth: Clear Vinyl 7"
Unlikely but overwilling, the embryonic form of Boston’s There Were Wires (formed on Martha’s Vineyard in 1999) traversed every basement, rec hall and dive club in the city to blow out speakers and vocal chords alike with their explosive brand of hardcore punk. Their blend of harshly emotive dissonance and punchy, anthemic songs pulled inspiration from bands like Converge, Portraits of Past, and Unbroken. Though it’s true that TWW’s live shows were a powder keg of chaos, the true gooey center of the band revealed an honest vulnerability that belied the tough crowd of contemporaries, which gained them a small but devoted cult following in the New England scene.
After several self-released demo tapes and CD’s, TWW teamed up with Iodine Recordings for a professional version of their debut S/T record (including a live radio set), as well as their final 2003 record ‘Somnambulists’, which tread into darker, moodier, and more atmospheric territory than ever before. The boys disbanded shortly after this release with a final show in 2004, which led to the formation of the bands Disappearer, Doomriders, and No Flowers.
This limited edition 7"EP was originally released in 2004 and is now available again with an alternate cover, hand numbered out of 100. Features the track "His Talk, Her Teeth" from Somnambulists backed with a cover of Sonic Youth's "Tunic". Recorded and produced by Matt Squire (Underoath, The Amity Affliction, The Used). Includes remastered digital download code.
