Biography

In the wake of Soundgarden’s breakthrough success in the ’90s, several groups decided to follow in the famed Seattle quartet’s footsteps with a similar heavy Sabbath-esque sound. One such band was the trio Sugartooth — Marc Hutner (vocals, guitar) and Josh Blum (bass) were the group’s mainstays, joined by a pair of different drummers (Joey Castillo and Dusty Watson) during their short career. The seeds of the band were planted in the early ’90s when Hutner and Blum met each other while fronting separate rock bands in the Southern California area. With grunge sound-alikes getting signed left and right (Candlebox, Paw, Seven Mary Three, etc. ), Sugartooth had no problem landing a deal with DGC, who issued the band’s self-titled debut in 1994. The album spawned a modest MTV hit with the track “Sold My Fortune,” as the group opened shows for such big name acts as Slayer, Supersuckers, Stone Temple Pilots, and their heroes, Soundgarden.

When sessions began for their sophomore disc, Castillo had left the band, and instead of replacing him straight away, Hutner and Blum opted to experiment with a drum machine. Admirably, Sugartooth decided to expand on their already established grunge-like sound, bringing in the eccentric production duo the Dust Brothers to oversee the proceedings.

    I still own this band's first album on the original cassette from the nineties :) It's great to listen to them again. One of the most original and enjoyable bands I've ever listened to. It's so sad that these guys are so underrated.

    amazing how even with the few songs as hits back in 1990 or so, they still slipped through the cracks... wonderful band.

    For 15 years now, Sugartooth's first disc always seems to find it's way into my ears every couple of months. Seems pretty memorable and good to me, but it looks like I'm one of the few.....Too bad, VERY underrated band from that era.

    Agree. First LP was so great, it is a scandal they have only 600 listeners now.

    Completely agree with them being underrated. It's too bad these guys only put out two albums.

    Sugartooth's first album is a rare gem of Sabbath legacy. Recommended to any heavy & melodic rockers.
