The Dentists - Dressed - CD on Homestead Records

DRESSED compiles 22 tracks from various LPs and singles. The Dentists: Michael Murphy (vocals, guitar); Robert Collins (guitar); Mark Matthews (bass); Ian Smith, Alun Jones (drums). Engineers: Jeff Home, Julie Anne Jones, Howard Turner. Recorded at Woolly Studios, Sheerness, England; Rooster Two, London, England; Raven, Norwich, England.

The Dentists' 1992 release, DRESSED, is a compilation of the band's mid-to-late-'80s singles and EPs (which had previously been collected on the vinyl-only SOME PEOPLE ARE ON THE PITCH and BEER BOTTLE AND BANISTER SYMPHONIES). It's also the belated American debut of the quartet, which hails from Kent, England. Over the course of these 22 tracks, which begin with the classic "Strawberries Are Growing in My Garden (And It's Wintertime)," singer Mick Murphy, guitarist Bob Collins, bassist Mark Matthews, and drummer Rob Grigg perfect a brilliant synthesis of 60s-inspired psych-pop and '80s-style indie guitar jangle. The results include playful gems like "Just Like Oliver Reed," "You Took Me By Surprise," and the swirling "She Dazzled Me With Basil."
