A - Electric Babies
B - Go Home
- Loser’s Recipe
The members of St. Louis-based LEFT ARM straddle the muddy Mississippi like a vagrant three-legged dog, foaming at the mouth and looking for trouble. Their new 7" EP, Electric Babies, is the result of that dog running riot, unleashing an attack of ferocious, primitive, garage-punk rock 'n roll.
First formed as a disjointed duo in 2002, LEFT ARM released the full-length debut album Dirty Mississippi Sound on Sluggo Records in 2003. Shortly thereafter, fuzz bassist Jim Stotts (The Cradles, Lost At Sea) joined his old cohort, drummer Jason Potter (Space Age Palmer, The Cradles, The Detainees), cementing LEFT ARM's ramrod rhythm section.
Following two quickly self-released EPs (Hotmouth Jive and Play 5 Songs with a Caveman) and a revolving door of guitarists (including Scott Walus, Brad Evetts, and Joe Stumble), the LEFT ARM sound continued to evolve. After taking a break to finish school, Evetts returned to the band in late 2007.
Electric Babies is the follow-up to 2007's 12-song LP, Dissatisoul, (TIRC-003) and contains 3 hot new tracks recorded in Detroit (the birthplace and mecca of dirty garage rock n roll) on 2” analog tape with the legendary producer/engineer, Jim Diamond. Among others, Diamond helped shape the sounds of White Stripes, Gore Gore Girls, Electric 6 and The Dirtbombs and was an integral part of the “Garage Rock Explosion” of the early 2000s. Additionally, the packaging features the hand screenprinted artwork of drummer Jason Potter and is limited to an edition of 300.
LEFT ARM presently stakes their claim as the modern kings of the St. Louis underground scene by opening for such road-heavy bands as The Briefs, Gore Gore Girls, GitoGito Hustler, The Riverboat Gamblers, Valient Thorr, MOTO, The Boss Martians, The Pink Spiders, Modey Lemon, The Safes, Crimson Sweet, The Spunks, Diamond Nights, The Giraffes, The Broken Spurs, and The Litigators.
