- Negative EP by Broken Arm
9/10 Ant Staff review, 28 April 2011
Seems like it's been a while since we've had anything in from Nottingham's Gringo records so I'm pleased this Broken Arm 7" has finally arrived. For those of you unfamiliar with the band, they are a four piece from Leeds who's members have previously played with the likes of Sailors, Woman, Like A Kind Of Matador and The Static Waves. Their music is kinda scratchy and sharp like all good garage rock acts but they've got the muscle of a hardcore band hence they exist somewhere between these two worlds. Part early Rock From The Crypt, part Black Flag, if you know what I'm saying. 'Negative' features three aggressive, pedal-to-the-metal (haven't used this phrase in a review before - hope you like it), party numbers on the A-side, all of which are awesome. Flip it over and you get a brooding beast of a number entitled 'House Rules' that touches on 'My War' era Flag whilst also flirting with the possibility of psychedelia. Recorded by Matt J (of the soon-to-better-known psychedelic rock band Hookworms) 'Negative' certainly sounds a little rough and rugged but that all adds to the charm of these recordings and very much suits the bands aesthetic. Amazing 7". Comes highly recommended by all the lads at Normans...without question...
