"Sweet Tooth": A story based on "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges, as suggested by musician Ted Nesseth of The Heavenly States (2/100)

Sweet Tooth



The Stooges, much like Grand Funk Railroad, are a band from Michigan. However, unlike the mighty GFR, The Stooges were abrasive and seedy. Mark Farner and Iggy Pop both performed shirtless a lot. Lots of people say Fun House is the best rock and roll album ever. Nobody says that about Grand Funk Railroad's All the Girls in the World Beware!!!. I hope nobody ever wants me to write a story about "Butt Town" by Iggy Pop.

Ted Nesseth is the guitarist and vocalist for the band The Heavenly States. He 's really good at saying the word "androgyny." I think their first album, The Heavenly States, is a perfect power-pop record. Their other albums are really good, too. Rumor has it that Ted used to play in a band that covered the entirety of Terence Trent D'Arby's Neither Fish Nor Flesh. An Aries like me, Ted is most likely prone to fiery arguments and personal discussion. His wife Genevieve is talented and adorable and always wearing cool boots. The Heavenly States are working on their fourth album right now, and while you're waiting for it to drop, you can go buy their self-titled debut, 2005's Black Comet, and 2008's Delayer to hold you over.

"The Story Of" from The Heavenly States

"Pretty Life" from Black Comet

"The Race" from Delayer
