Broken Arm - Negative EP

Garage punk/noise punk stuff from Leeds. Too well dressed for the punks. Too steeped in old SST records for the indie kids. Stuck in their own little place which is where all bands should be.

Here's a review from Collective-Zine:-

Side A features 3 short, sharp blasts of garage influenced hardcore that is all over the shop. Really neat stuff that has brains and brawn in abundance. However, it’s the b-side’s lone track, ‘House Rules’ that really wins me over; a noisy No Trend-esque slow burner coated in feedback with a repetitive bass line throughout. The vocals on this track are awesome; whiny and weird without being over the top or annoying. It slowly rumbles on and on for 4 or 5 minutes without getting laboured or boring. Cracking stuff and some sweet artwork of a bunch of hippies and policemen hanging out at Stonehenge.
