    Cheap Teeth

    Working at a covid centre, Brudenell Social Club, Edinburgh curfews, flu camps, farmjobs.com, chicken chasing, wholesale chair sales... Jack and Joe (which one, I'm unsure) from Cheap Teeth ruminate on vocations past, present and unsubstantiated.
    Their new single 'What a Feeling, What a Day' is extremely ace. It's pucka.

ChipperChelseaK ,

So happy you interviewed Dimash!!

I was so surprised to see you interviewed Dimash Kudaibergen! I really enjoyed it and loved how you tried to get answers as to what he does for enjoyment besides music. It’s a question he doesn’t answer much 😆 He didn’t really answer it here either. I love him either way though!
