Dead Arms - Apocalypse Yow



  Dead Arms are a 4 piece noise punk band with members from London, Kent and California. Those members, General Waste (vocals), Phil Glitter (guitar), Danny 5 Bands (bass) and Kitty Techno (drums) also feature in USA Nails, Los Bitchos, Death Pedals and It Often Takes A War. (Quick plug, both Dead Arms and USA Nails will feature on this week's Just Some Punk Songs show which starts today at 8pm GMT : https://www.facebook.com/events/449173645663091/).

  Formed in 2011, they name as influences the likes of Hot Snakes, The Stooges and Nirvana but admit that the bands people most often compare them too are Jesus Lizard. Off and Part Chimp. You can get more info here : https://www.facebook.com/DeadArms/

  They've just released a new album, it's titled Simply Dead (https://deadarms.bandcamp.com/album/simply-dead) and if you're a fan of pissed off noise then it'll be for you. There's songs about a racist called Nigel who immigration drove to racial hate, broadcast news being full of lies (spin is king), homelessness etc. The music is hard hitting, the lyrics often cryptic and relevant to the world around us, it's an album with plenty to say. Case in point the song you'll find below, accompanied by a Brexit themed video of braying jackasses, this is Apocalypse Yow...

Guess the guest on Through The Keyhole 
Never meant to get this far 
Fame rips my life apart 
Now you know I’m a fucking liar 

EAT - CAT - MEAT 
Make me invisible 
EAT - CAT - MEAT 
Make me invincible 

Guess the guest on Through The Keyhole 
Never meant to get this far 
Fame rips my life apart 
Now you know I’m a fucking liar 

EAT - CAT - MEAT 
Make me invisible 
EAT - CAT - MEAT 
Make me invincible 
EAT - CAT - MEAT 
Make me invisible 
EAT - CAT - MEAT 

Why don’t you come here? 
Why don’t you come here, no more? 
Why don’t you come here? 
Why don’t you come here, no more? 
Why don’t you come here? 
Why don’t you come here, no more? 
Why don’t you come here? 
Why don’t you come here, no more? 

Guess the guest on Through The Keyhole 
Never meant to get this far 
Fame rips my life apart 
Now you know I’m a fucking liar 

Loud Noises 
Pained Voices 
Loud Noises 
Pained Voices 
Loud Noises
