1.Having first made their mark on the London indie scene in various other musical projects, Toothpaste are here to bring you minty fresh pop bangers. Comprised of Amol (Vox/Guitar), Daisy (Bass), Poppy (Keys) and Sami (Drums), they endeavour to provide both wicked tunes and okayish oral hygiene. Their debut single 'TV Years' explores the sense of disconnect between people in the modern world. Or as Amol describes: the sort of feeling that makes you want to stay away from the outside world, at home watching TV.
2. Toothpaste is an early 80's Chicago punk band that formed out of former members of Naked Raygun and The Wayouts. They released a 12" in 1983 recorded at 2120 S. Michigan Ave. (formerly Chess Records) and played around town until about 1985, with a number of lineup changes. Their record received favorable reviews and was recommended by Steve Albini, among others. Al Szopinski left the band for two years and former Naked Raygun members Camilo Gonzalez and Jim Colao took up the slack. Toothpaste took a more pop punk approach to the music while Naked Raygun, Strike Under and the Effigies pushed the more hardcore "Chicago Sound". Naked Raygun and Big Black member Santiago Durango wrote "Oh Yeah Come On" and Naked Raygun guitarist John Haggerty played sax on the studio recording of "Oh Yeah Come On".
