BLACKTOOTH RECORDS PRESENTS: ACTUALIZE zine

These are not the bones you are looking for. Presenting ACTUALIZE Zine, a pictographically enunciated blast of appreciated hours at Kinkos, resulting in a fine-tuned page flipper. It’s like a prison movie.

Limited to a run in of 35, many of which sold at our Laugh Your Taxes Off variety show, but the residuals will be in the Blacktooth Store (sidebar) until they’re gone.

SILVER & GOLD – bad boys

“It’s so special when there’s something special…”

SILVER & GOLD – it’s high times

Here we find our lovely duo branching out to more progressive and illicit material. The label thought it was too heavy handed at the time and dropped the band almost immediately. Joke’s on those silly suits, however, because when SILVER & GOLD released the song anyway, it was their most massive hit to date, hitting #1 for 12 weeks straight on the billboard top 100 in 2013!!!!! It was also featured on season finally of Grey Anatomy.

SILVER & GOLD – girls

 

 

This is the joint that brought the group multi-north-american-national success. It was a smash hit on the Canadian billboard’s heat seekers, climbing all the way to #4 in the spring of 2013. 9 weeks strong!

SILVER & GOLD – fresh haircut at a champaign party

A #2 hit in non-com College radio in the fall of 2012!

The first big presence our duo had in the game. After this put them on the map they were able to start throwing weight around more. Stick around to see how they explore different subject matter and grow as artists as we here at Blacktooth recap the long-legged, high-striding career of Silver & Gold, as we lead up to Laugh Your Taxes Off, April 15 at the Crying Wolf with our exclusive real life Q&A with the boys.

Curtis Mayfield – There’s No Place Like America Today

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most powerful artists with one of their most blistering creations, Curtis Mayfield’s “There’s No Place Like America Today” has one foot on the gas and one foot kicking against the goads. The whole record is a complete work, from the Mayfield-produced-Baby-Huey cover of “Hard Times” to the soul-purifying horn arrangements by Curtom’s man in house, Rich Tufo (see 0:38 on in “So In Love”). Hard to top Superfly on any angle, but damn if Curtis didn’t drop the other shiny shoe fresh off the dance floor and into the gutter next to Dylan’s vomiting whore. Truthful, grooving, clear-eyed Mayfield: Pro & Fit.

Listen: Curtis Mayfield – Billy Jack
