A horrible hack

Broken Arm


Year Released: 2011
Format: 7"
Label: Gringo
Reviewed by Chaz Hewitt on Feb 21, 2012
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.
