Gap-Tooth Clown EP -(1997)

Gap-Tooth Clown's instrumental opener "Auto Pilot" merely pumps listeners up for lead vocalist Marcus Durant's charismatic entrance on the oddly grungy "Crow" (think early Soundgarden with added distortion). "Lipstick" then turns the spotlight back to guitarist Rich Millman who really dominates the song, but it's arguably the ensuing "Gospel Tent" which runs away with the EP's best song prize, fulfilling the promise of its title with accompanying handclaps and truly exultant calls to spread the good news of rock & roll. Finally, the more deliberate "Unusual" takes its sweet time at slowly ascending towards a piercing climax.
