I don't know what it is about this record. I mean, I think Teeth put together a particularly good single here: colored vinyl, nice picture sleeve with sharp-looking typefaces and a neat design, cool-looking labels, and two pretty decent songs. Yet it seems like I'm always finding this single in the clearance bin, or on Dr. Strange's $1 Sale... once I even had a collector that I was recently buying some odd 7"-ers from offer to throw in a Teeth single for free, just to get rid of it. On top of that, there's now about 8 other bands on MySpace named Teeth, and there's even a movie out called Teeth. (I guess all that means is, when it comes time to sit down and come up with a name for your band, it pays to think a little harder.)
Anyway, I liked this single when I first reviewed it back in '95, and I still like it today. "Marathon Man" is a good, churning, Naked Raygun/Pegboy-style punk song, so for Teeth's sake, why not give it a listen.
