Toothless George / Press

"PLAN A: Toothless George and His One-Man Band @ Eleven. A former pro skater who lost his front teeth in an accident, this Philadelphia-based greaser bangs out punkinfused rockabilly jams with a drum-guitar setup in the tradition of Appalaichan legend Hasil Adkins. If you're feeling charitable, buy some merch so he can get new teeth for Christmas."


"TOOTHLESS GEORGE. Truly a one-man band, Toothless George plays guitar and drums and sings all at the same time, even throwing in a dose of harmonica when his vocals need a rest. The guy specializes in chaotic and wild punk rock mixed with rockabilly and country. He's in town from Philly for a couple of gigs: Tonight's at Atlantis and Sat. at The Tavern on Main, with The Tri-Fives and The In-Crowd supporting. (Atlantis Bar & Tavern on Main, Sarasota)


"D.I.Y. or Die! Toothless George truely takes that sentiment to heart by eliminating not only managers, booking agents, and sleazy lawyers, but also the need for band mates! He simultaniously handles vocal, guitar, drum, tambourine, and harmonica responsibilities with punk rock attitude and the zeal of a country preacher!


"Perhaps the most interesting contributor to Get Outta Philly is Toothless George and his One Man Band. With not one, but two stand-out tracks in "Don't Fuck With Me" and "Train Wreck," the great toothless one blends honky-tonk country with roots rock like the bastard offspring of Hasil Atkins and G.G. Allin. With a punk rocker's attitude, the zeal of a country preacher and a Hank Williams songbook in hand, Toothless George puts the majority of today's "alt-country" poseurs to shame with seemingly endless energy and reckless country soul that is closer in spirit to Jason & the Scorchers than to Ryan Adams or Wilco".

"Toothless George ain't no stinkin musician. (Musicians actually practice 'n' stuff.) Toothless George is a muthaf#@*in' entertainer!"


"Toothless George And His One Man Band - kinda Lightning Beatman weirdo and "Don't Fuck With Me" is really cool track"

"#2 on The weekly Top 30 for September 12, 2005"

WKDU 91.7 FM - (9/12 '05)

"Toothless George- The relative time forgot. Fresh out of the Philadelphia halfway house of degenerate 'ole time sk8 punks this orthadontaly challenged soul found salvation in a one-man-band rapture that will rattle your eyes out of your skull."

SPEED CRAZY- (11/10 '05)

"If you're planning to visit the Double Down this weekend, just be prepared... Some guy named Toothless George is bringing his one-man band to the stage every night. His act has been evocatively described in fanzines as 'garbagebilly.' ...The sonic instability and friction alone could cause a meltdown."


"Acts not to miss: Philadelphia's Toothless George & His One Man Band, who's playing all three days (of Rollercon.)"

Mike Kalil - LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL (8/26-9/1 '05)

“- (From 8/13/05) "Great Show!" ”

LARS FREDERIKSEN 8/3/05 - Rancidrancid.com

"haha hey I love it-this is the type of stuff I need for the Queers Tribute album-got more of this song?"

JOE KING (1/24/06) - The Queers

"Toothless George Rocks"

CHRIS BARROWS - The Pink Lincolns

"...The danger at Warped (Tour) is that after a couple of hours - or maybe a couple of minutes - at the all-day carnival, every band starts to sound the same. But hey, with more than seven dozen acts playing on nine stages, there has to be some good stuff. ...Toothless George & his One Man Band also are worth checking out."


"...Toothless George is the best One-man band in the country. A mix of Rockabilly, Country, Punk, and Beer".

"...the raw and ripping Toothless George And his One Man Band offers a pub rock punch in the stomach almost literally with "Don't Fuck With Me".

"...Other highlights may very well include the caustic, stripped-down garbagebilly of Toothless George and His One Man Band..."

"...I can't imagine there's more than one Toothless George...and he's totally gotta have a one man band. He's totally my hero."

"Think Hasil Adkins and Johnny Paycheck if they listened to FEAR"

JUKEBOX ZEROS - (Posted on myspace.com 5/6/05)

"Toothless George (is) a countrified punk ONE-MAN BAND, and he (is) friggin' AWESOME!!!"

TIED FOR LAST - www.tiedforlast.com

"Drunken country punk songs by a dude with no front teeth. God bless America. Rating: BUY!"

"I like (Toothless George) a lot ... I'm suprised it is (him). ...just wasn't what i was expecting. I would love to hear this shit produced. I can't wait! Fuck yeah Philadelphia! Classic message!"

JUSTIN LUCZJKO (Editor In Chief) - Wonka Vision Magazine - via personal email

"(I) was VERY surprised to find that Toothless George's music DOESN'T suck. What I mean is, being a one-man band, I expected it to be a bit ... I don't know ... NOT rockin'. But (he) most certainly (DOES) rock, buddy. Oh yeah!"


"A Philly mainstay, artist, musician, and screen printer. Toothless George looks like a rat rod with floating teeth in the grille, and sounds like a blown hemi with straight pipes! His one-man band will make you smile!"


"Two years ago, we got to review a CD that sounded very similar to Rancid, by an amazing band called The Bedrockers. Now, I have a new CD from The Bedrockers' singer/ bass player, Toothless George. A lot of bands break up and start solo projects, but in his, he plays everything himself. There are no drum machines or samples. This guy plays everything live. It's the coolest thing I've ever heard of. It is a major contrast to the fast paced music he was playing before, but it is no less impressive. Country Punk Rock Yee Haw!"

WASTED YOUTH ZINE (Volume 5 Issue 7)

"One-man-band, Toothless George, exhibits his extraordinary talent as he simultaniously sings and plays guitar, drums, and harmonica and tells people to fuck off. Now a long-time resident of philadelphia, George (although he may not admit it) once lived in the First State. See, good things can actually come out of Delaware - and you might know him as the punk prodigy who founded such legendary local bands as Mao & the Chinese Revolution."
