Applause for Broken Teeth?

We all know Jason McMaster can sing and that Dangerous Toys are great...but what about Broken Teeth?

McMaster fronts both Dangerous Toys and Broken Teeth, and I'll be seeing both bands at Houston's Rock the Bayou festival later this summer. I've never seen either band and I'm really looking forward to the experience.

Broken Teeth sound a lot like AC/DC and that's good in my book.

I think Rock the Bayou is smart in having both bands because it stretches their travel budget and gives fans a taste of native Texas rock.

Broken Teeth were formed in Austin, Texas just before 2000 and have released quite a few discs. Electric came out not so long ago, but it's not a disc of all new tracks.  

The band has had some lineup changes, and these days Dave Beeson and Jared Tuten play guitar, Brett McCormick plays bass and Bruce Rivers plays drums. Of course many - including myself - consider McMaster's signature voice the cornerstone of Broken Teeth.


I can't help but wonder if Dangerous Toys/Broken Teeth shows are much different. At any case, I'm down for the experience and I want to meet and/or interview Jason McMaster for this website.


Here's the video for "Roll Over"

I saw part of a Broken Teeth show in Cincy a couple of years ago. The sound wasn't great in the little hole-in-the-wall bar, but the crowd was pretty good and they seemed to get a good reception. I didn't stay for the whole show, but what I saw they were decent.

Don't forget that Jasom McMaster started out in the Progressive Thrash Metal band Watchtower

All of Jason's projects are great!

I really like MacMaster with Dangerous Toys, but haven't heard too much of Broken Teeth, with the exception of a song or two. I'll have to check them out more...

My band, Drugstore Valentine, had the EXTREME pleasure of opening up for Jason's Broken Teeth twice here in Cincinnati. They arent as good as Dangerous Toys were, but still a very, very good band. Jason is such a nice guy too. He gave me 220 dollars worth of merch for 40 bucks!!! And he even remembered our names, watched our entire set, complimented us, and helped us carry our gear after the show was over! Jason is a class act!!!!

i saw dangerous toys back in 1989 (i think) in germany and then earlier this year i saw them again. well, i saw about the first 5 songs this year. i had to leave to pick up my son from the babysitter. of course this wouldn't have happened but the drunken local dj had a lingerie contest that ran way too long because he was begging to be shown some skin. anyway, jason tells it like it is and seems pretty cool. he was standing in front of me while junkyard played but before i could say anything somebody else started talking and they went over to the merch table.

i haven't seen broken teeth so i can't comment on them. at any rate, dangerous toys still sound good and jason seems to be a cool guy. i'm sure he'd have no problem doing an interview. good luck.

Dangerous Toys has not one, but two of the best albums to come from that era. Broken Teeth is a great band as well. McMaster is quietly one of the best singers out there.
