Plymouth quartet, Crazy Arm, is the versatile, roots-punk lovechild that arose from two popular city bands, NoComply and The
Once OverTwice. Although forming in May 2005, it wasn't until their respective bands split up a year later that they became a
more serious concern.
Pitched between the dark twang of 16 Horsepower, the punk thrust of Fugazi and Hot Water Music, the crunchy pop of Ted Leo
and the protestsongs of Dick Gaughan, the band have developed a distinctly progressive and aggressive style, shot through
with a healthy dose of grass-rootspolitics. They rely chiefly on folk/country open tunings and slide guitars to evoke moods that
are at odds with the punk orthodoxy.
