No Teeth

No Teeth [unpublished]

Lester Bangs

[Lyrics are unavailable.]
Last Updated: 08/29/2016

A studio version of this song was recorded at New York's Big Apple Studios in May 1977 for Ork Records's never-released Lester Bangs's EP. Musicians backing Bangs in the studio were Jody Harris, David Hofstra, Jay Dee Dougherty, and Robert Quine.

A 1977 issue of Cashbox makes the following brief announcement for this and other tracks on Lester Bangs's forthcoming EP: 

Woody Allen says, "Those who can't do, teach, while those who can't teach, teach gym." All this must have something to do with notorious rock critic/humorist Lester Bangs, who recently crossed the great divide by signing a recording contract with Ork Records. Bangs will bare his soul to the establishment with original tunes like "No Teeth," "Flesh For Sale" and "People Don't Melt." As a journalist who helped pave the way for the Bowery rock scene, Bangs hopes that his debut LP for Ork will establish him as the "Idi Amin Dada" of the Lower East Side. (Source: "East Coastings/Points West: More Punkish Pranks." Cashbox: The International Music Record Weekly 11 June 1977: 42.)

If you know the lyrics, have a recording, or can offer more information about the song title or its content, please contact the Lester Bangs Archive management.
