I remember seeing Not My Good Arm the first time all those years ago; they had an edge to them that couldn’t be blunted, charisma that wouldn’t be compressed and a sound that wouldn’t let you simply ‘stand there’. The shoe-tickling music demands flailing feet and sunset grins, taking elements from ska and soul, while simultaneously delivering their influences of grunge and alternative music in a heavy blast of bass, brass, drums, guitar and occasional dog noises.
Their debut EP ‘Dog Therapy‘ has received praise from reviewers, and understandably so! The twitches and twangs of genre-defying sonic waves hijack your interest and dances through the length of the 6-track release. Their live shows are no less enthralling, with leaps and jumps and heads banging and toes trilling.
Listen to Dog Therapy above on their Bandcamp, and be sure to catch them live at The Vault (downstairs of The Shed) in Leicester on 7th September for Homeless Shakespeare & The Pigeon Theatre’s album launch!
