Music For Lovers Presents: Crazy Arm + Bisons + Rivals + Lessons
"← See event flyer for more information ←"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Pitched somewhere between the dark twang of 16 Horsepower, the punk thrust of Fugazi and Hot Water Music, the crunchy pop of Ted Leo and the protest songs of Dick Gaughan, the band have developed a distinctly progressive and aggressive style, shot through with a healthy dose of grass-roots politics. They rely chiefly on folk/country open tunings and slide guitars to evoke moods that are at odds with the punk orthodoxy.
The seven piece Plymouth band are an accumulation of decades of influence and inspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country and classic rock’n’roll, combined with a grass-roots political overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-community activism.

Established in November 2011, Bisons are a three piece rock band from Middlesbrough featuring ex-members of DARTZ!, Zapped By A Million Volts and Glass Avalanche. The trio take influence from American bands such as Hot Water Music, Foo Fighters, Jawbreaker, Bluetip and The Descendents, as well as UK underground acts including Pylon, Dugong and Milloy.
