Pulling Teeth - 2005 Demo 7" Flexi

Way back in 2005 (almost 7 years ago now!), members of Slumlords created a side-project called Pulling Teeth. This side-project wrote and recorded a 3-song demo. It may be a tad crude, but it clearly shows the talent the band had in their early stages. All three of these songs would eventually be re-recorded for their first full release - Vicious Skin.

It was interesting to receive this along-side the magnus opus of Pulling Teeth. The demo showed the band in its raw beginning, which was clearly more straight-up hardcore punk. It also showed just how much the band had progressed over their 6 active years.
I think flexis are a really neat format, and this release is no exception. With this, what you see is what you get. It is plain black with the cover picture printed in the middle. The rear side of the cover simply has the track names and lyrics. Nothing flash, but it does the job nicely.
