Teeth Agency is artist Mariano Chavez and musician Jesse Hackett, a touring member of Gorillaz signed to Strictly Confidential.
After Jesse bought a vintage ‘dental phantom’ from Mariano Chavez’ Agent Gallery in Chicago, the pair began a stimulating exchange of creative ideas, inspired by unconventional music, macabre art and striking artefacts. This became the beginning of a new venture, combining music, art and film throughout all of Jesse’s work.
They are united by their morbid curiosities, as well as their interest in a range of rare musical styles. They describe their music as, “lizard lounge jazz and French noir sleaze with sinking ship piano improvisations in underwater organ suits.”
Their debut album "You Don't Have To Live In Pain" was released on Stones Throw.
