The best kept secret in music

Toronto duo The Sharp Tongues who impress by the simple fact that their drummer is also their bassist (and occasionally their singer)...The Sharp Tongues' surf/garage-adelica was raw and no frills and with a healthy dose of attitude...definitely enjoyable and fun to watch.

The Tongues managed to deliver a short set of raw, spirited, cacophonous indie rock that left the audience begging for more. At one point it looked like the gig was in doubt because of Julia's illness, but they make their indie rockers as tough as granite in Canada and she insisted that the show must go on... How the band managed to deliver such a spine tingling auditory assault under such circumstances is little short of breathtaking.

If you want reference points for the Sharp Tongues take the jagged, oblique guitar attack of Fugazi the angular angst of Throwing Muses, the rawness of the early White Stripes and the pop punk sensibilities of The Buzzcocks and you'd be getting close to the Sharp Tongues. There are a couple of new tracks on their myspace site so get yourself over there but beware these Tongues bite. - besttuna.blogspot.com


Multi-talented and utterly unforgettable Marcus Quin and the unstoppable, completely captivating, incredibly alluring and talented, Julia Muth on skin shredding guitar and icicle sharp vocals. Together they are a match made in heaven and, on the basis of this gig, one of the best, and most promising, new bands in Toronto at the moment.

It was close to midnight when the Sharp Tongues took to the stage and any thoughts of tiredness after a long day at work were soon blasted away by the first sonic assault Lies, closely followed by an even more fierce assault called Doubt... This is one mesmerising band. Marcus manages to play both bass and drums at the same time and at one point, I swear he was having a drink whilst still playing both instruments!

Catch them soon they could just change your life - besttuna.blogspot.com

Bio

The Sharp Tongues is a new band comprised of the unforgettable Marcus Quin (The Silt) and the unstoppable Julia Muth (ex-Creeping Nobodies, The Piney Wolves, Celestino), together they are unquestionably the best new band that Toronto has to offer. Julia and Marcus both lived in a very quiet household for nearly a year before one day Marcus said “hey, do you wanna jam some time?” Julia replied “uh...yeah, how about now?” And thus, The Sharp Tongues were born and quiet-time was over. Marcus’ one-man-band style bass and drums became the perfect platform for Julia’s searing guitar and icy vocals. The Sharp Tongues can give it to you hard, slow, hot and fast, Julia’s sweet licks and Marcus’ deep pounding rhythm are sure to satisfy. Julia Muth is not your average girl. Raised by gypsies in the ozarks of Ontario, she has never quite fit in. She likes it that way. Her past musical endeavours have included the little known, much loved Celestino and the ever changing, ever impressive Creeping Nobodies, for which she held the post of lead guitarist/sometime singer for the formative years of the band's existence. Now, she is out on her own and she is raring to go! Marcus Quin isn't content to play just one instrument at a time like everyone else. "It helps take my mind off things" says he. He plays simul-drums 'n' bass in The Silt, but now harder and faster with The Sharp Tongues. He adds "I wasn't raised by gypsies, but by Irish people." One of his first revelations at age four was watching a drummer on the telly play the high hats. "I thought that you opened the cymbals up and stuck the stick inside and hit them up and down. I thought about that for years...
