Broken Arm are a band long admired here at AFB, so it is with great enthusiasm that we are able to release this record, their first full-length LP. Life is Short is an exercise in grooving noise rock, filth and disillusionment. Broken Arm have the perfect knack for writing a catchy post punk tune and smearing a healthy amount of dirt all over it.
Formed in Leeds in the late 2000’s from the ashes of noise punk outfits Sailors, Woman,
Like a Kind of Matador and more recently Mob Rules. Their debut release “Shields Mystical” was a
short and punchy CDep released in 2008. After a lengthy absence the band eventually followed up
with their first outing on vinyl, the 7” EP “Negative” released in 2011 by Gringo Records.
The album is split release with Gringo Records and will be released on Vinyl and digital download only. The album was recorded in Leeds in late 2011 by Matt J (Hookworms, Joanna Gruesome & Mazes) at Suburban Home.
