Black Tooth

Blues / Rock
The seed that became BLACK TOOTH was planted back in the early 90’s when Ramsey Craine met Ben Dunderdale. They formed a solid friendship and camaraderie based on a mutual love of Blues based rock.

They ultimately decided to put their as-yet-unnamed project into flight within a few weeks of their first encounter. They began performing live covering the classics throughout the ages. After moving to London they Joined forces with Manx legend Scott Gibbons and Ireland's finest Dean Metcalfe to complete the band. So they set up a rehearsal studio and starting hitting the tunes, hard.

Within a short time the boys were on the scene building up a reputation as great live act with the songs to back it up.


Other / Alternative / Classical
Matthew Gilbert Linley (aka 'Gilbert') is a London-born drummer/keyboard player who studied classical music and composition at Oxford University and Goldsmith's College, before writing soundtracks for film, television and theatre for some years. A debut album completed in 2007 received excellent reviews and extensive national radio play, gaining a digital release soon after on the Indie label, Shifty Disco Records. The music was subsequently performed live by 4/5 people (playing an array of drums/percussion, bass, organs, violins, horns, singing and spoken word) extensively throughout the UK including notable sets at the 2007 Green Man Festival, 2008 Loop Festival, and 2009 Southbank Udderbelly.

In 2010 a new album - 'Wahoola!' - was finished. About the new record Gilbert Linley writes: " I wanted 'Wahoola!' to more obviously feature the talents of the people who have been performing the first album live.....especially Maud Waret's vocals and Brian Lee's violin-playing and zany spoken word monologues".

Gilbert Linley also plays drums in Engineers.

This is my first gig as a solo artist and I hope to be doing it for a long time to come! Failing that, at least I still have my good looks ha ha ha!"
