Product description

MUMMY SHORT ARMS release their debut album, 'Old Jack's Windowless Playhouse' on 21st May 2012 on Glasgow based Flowers In The Dustbin, available on digipak cd & download.

Debut single 'Cigarette Smuggling' attracted reviews using words like "genius" and "pure alternative perfection". Second single 'Change' was THE LIST single of the month while Artrocker / Loud Horizon scribe Colin Jackson wrote, "I think I could confidently predict that Glasgow's MUMMY SHORT ARMS are probably the best band you haven't yet heard."

Radio play includes STEVE LAMACQ, TOM ROBINSON, NME RADIO, VIC GALLOWAY, ALLY McCRAE. Live the band are blessed with a unique sound and a frontman in James Allan who has attracted comparisons to Tom Waits, Frank Black and "a young Mick Jagger".

"A double-espresso wake-up jolt and further proof that Scotland's wee labels are keeping the lifeblood flowing." The Herald

"Comparisons to Captain Beefheart have been banded around Glasgow's Mummy Short Arms but Frank Black at his most violent seems a better fit on the brilliantly unhinged Single of the Month, 'Change' ... It's a screamer." The List

"One of the best debut albums you're likely to hear for some time." Sound Of Confusion

"A cracking record." Evening Times

"By the end of the first listen I was in love with Mummy Short Arms." Spacecar Racecar

"There's something utterly captivating about this band, and I cannot stop listening." Given and Taken in Ink
