Music Guides

There are numerous 'music guide' websites which feature The Dentists. The most extensive, with sound clips and the 1993 'Gas' video is VH1. You can find similar but less extensive entries at Yahoo, All Music Guide (AMG), Musicmatch, Artist Direct. They all use the standard biography (by Stewart Mason) but for a different take, by Scott Schindler try Trouser Press.


Yes there is now a Dentists entry on Wikipedia. No idea who put it on there but it's astonishingly accurate.


The CD reissue of "Some People Are On The Pitch They Think It's All Over It Is Now" was released in Aug 2005 on the Revola label and can be ordered from their website.

The best route to locate used Dentists vinyl and early releases appears to be Musicstack. Also Tonevendor and IPR have mini-reviews. And of course there's always Ebay or Amazon where you can get hold of later releases usually at very reasonable prices!
