So we didn't get the new Left Arm CD in time to get anything in the paper about its CD release show this weekend -- through no fault of the band or us! -- but I figured I'd blog about it anyway. The CD is called Dissastisoul, and on my first, quick listen it's a frantic collection of screaming punk (of the ca. 1977, Dead Kennedys and garage varieties) that'll leave skidmarks as it speeds through your CD player. I dig it.
Left Arm's release party also features the fantastic 75s and Pat Boone's Farm (the latter of which I know nothing about). Oh, and by an email I just received, it's the last show featuring Joe Stumble, of the excellent Last Days of Man on Earth blog.
The details: Saturday, November 10 Stagger Inn, Edwardsville Show starts at 9:30ish $3, 21+ only
Here are two MP3s from the album (if anyone in the band doesn't want me to link, just holla!). Right-click to download.
