The Arkhams Bio:

The Arkhams are a true NYC rock'n'roll band in the same way Talking Heads and the NY Dolls are patently New York City bands. Taking their name from a town made infamous in HP Lovecraft lore, it’s no coincidence that the songs have recurring themes of insanity and mental illness. The sound is as schizophrenic as the content: a psychotic episode across sub-genre boundaries which at any twitch can switch from psycho-garage to Mersey-beat/R&B and New York City Punk Rock. The Arkhams thrive on their musical (and personal) eccentricity, while nodding to those who have influenced them. A live set is a barrage of rock fury, with most songs connected to the next, relenting few times between for the crowd to catch their breath and wipe the sweat from their brows.
