Artist Biography by

The industrial junk-rock trio Wisdom Tooth formed from the remnants of Miracle Room, an Austin, TX-based band formed in the mid-'80s by guitarist Ed Greer and bassist Steve Marsh. Following Miracle Room's demise, Greer and Marsh continued experimenting with homemade instruments, building guitars and basses out of chunks of lumber strung with piano wire and springs. After teaming with drummer Dave Liles and setting him up with a kit comprised of old gas cans, saw blades, and oil drums, Wisdom Tooth honed their noisy, primitive sound by playing at such diverse venues as the Knitting Factory, the Lollapalooza tour, and the Whitney Art Museum before issuing their debut LP, Mental Floss, in 1997.
