Many Arms - Palabras Malas

I saw these guys in a tiny DC-area club about 5 months ago. They play a wild, powerful form of power-trio out-rock. I really enjoyed their set and this is basically what I saw! These guys are jazz-trained, but rock-ready. If your taste runs towards tight and a bit brutal, this will knock you out.

"Many Arms is a Philadelphia based instrumental guitar trio comprised of guitarist Nick Millevoi (Make a Rising, Circles), Ricardo Lagomasino (Joe Lally Band, Capillary Action) and John DeBlase (Zevious). Equally indebted to Ornette Coleman, King Crimson, and Mahavishnu Orchestra, as well as latter-day Black Flag, the band's jagged songs hit hard and hit often while remaining willing to take a turn towards the pretty or the weird when occasionally inclined. Sophisticated and unpredictable, Many Arms creates music that appeals to rockers and music nerds alike.

"Instrumental trio from Philadelphia twirls jazz, punk and progressive jamming with anything else that comes to mind. Many Arms’ adventurous prog rock evokes an electrified Mahavishnu Orchestra with some of the instrumental punk bands that used to appear on the legendary but now defunct SST Records."-Samir Shukla, Creative Loafing.
