Band spotlight//I AM THE ARM

Our last band spotlight were S.C.U.M., and if you liked them, here's another band of keyboard-wielding post-punkers in the Boys of Brazil vein. These have been around for quite a while; they formed in early 2006 under the name Cyclic Suicides to make biting electronic music with only two members, but over time they've added a drummer and a bassist, and their sound shows the progression: electronics are still integral, but wild drumming and punk-spit vocals lend the music gallons of attitude.

They've released two EPs on Decasian Records, and support Neils Children at Dice Club on the 13th January. If you live in London, go and see them. If not, visit their MySpace and buy their music; you won't regret it.
