Crazy Arm Bio:
From Devon, hard-twang, roots-punk quartet, Crazy Arm, properly set up camp in mid-2006. Not easy to categorise, and all the better for it, the band’s sound is an accumulation of decades of influence and inspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country and classic rock’n’roll, combined with a grass-roots political overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-community activism.
Crazy Arm’s debut album, 'Born To Ruin' – recorded by Pete Miles on the edge of Dartmoor – was released on Xtra Mile Recordings in June 2009 to much acclaim from fans and critics alike. The title is a celebration of history’s conscientious troublemakers as well as a respectful nod to Springsteen. The album is released on mainland Europe, through Gunner Records, on 19th March 2010.
As individuals, they very much enjoy listening to the likes of 16 Horsepower, Fleet Foxes, Hüsker Dü, The Clash, Fugazi, Dick Gaughan, Woven Hand, Black Flag, The Who, Band Of Horses, X, Murder By Death, Constantines, Joni Mitchell, Austin Lucas, Ted Leo, First Aid Kit, Tragedy, Hot Water Music, The Replacements, Gene Vincent, Led Zeppelin, Arcade Fire, CSNY, Bruce Springsteen, Baroness and old bluegrass. As a band, they sometimes end up sounding a bit like all of them, sometimes all at once.
All four members are atheist, internationalist, vegetarian/vegan and support human/animal rights struggles worldwide. They consider these things important to mention even if you don’t.
