Feeling a bit camera shy


We have recently decided on a name change and we're going with Busey Teeth.

Addiction To Nixon started in the Summer of 2004 when Chris J posted a message seeking band members on an ontario punk community message board. The original lineup consisted of Chris J on drums, Zach & Mike on guitars, Erik on Bass and Marjo on vocals. The first practice we did some covers together and wrote our first song "Rank & File" simply because we wanted to have a song that everyone in the band knew how to play.

During this early period, we just practiced without any name because nobody could think of a good one. For a short time though we did settle on Rehab Clinic.

After a few months Erik (who wasn't doing much for anyone anyway) and Zach left the band because of distance reasons. For guitar we were okay because we still had Mike but without a bassist we were looking to fill the void. This is where Chris told everyone he played bass too, so we could either look for a new bass player or a drummer, and if we found a new drummer he'd take over bass duties. Enter Johnny.

Marjo met Johnny at some show and invited him to come jam with us and we were all impressed. Chris moved over to bass and this became the lineup for the next 2 years. We proceeded to write more songs and practice our butts off. After several name-changes that were more a-name-for-the-sake-of-a-name, we came up with Addiction to Nixon and it's stuck since then. We played several shows together with this lineup, recorded a 10-track demo in the spring of 2005 which we didn't do much with due to poor overall production, and we also managed to sell a number of buttons at shows.

Towards the summer/fall of 2006, Johnny had gotten a new job going door to door selling fixed gas rate plans. It was okay at first when he was working the city, but eventually it meant we were turning down more shows than playing. Eventually we decided that we could no longer keep Johnny around, as good as he was, because there was no point to having a great drummer if no one could ever hear him play. Upon hearing our decision to give Johnny the boot, Mike took this as an opportunity to follow him out the door as his heart just wasn't really in it beyond the level of extra-curricular activities. So Chris and Marjo proceeded to spend 2 months searching around for a new drummer and guitar player(s).

Enter Tyshit and Chris B. These two responded to posts on yet another punk-community message board so we sent them a link to our myspace page to check out some of the songs and had a jam together to test each other out. Though not completely set the first practice, the second session blew us away, so we decided that this would be it. After several regular practices everything is tightening up nice and fast, and we're still amazed at how quickly these two guys were able to pick everything up, and the new creative juices has already led to 3 new songs in the works.
