SEVERED ARM APPEARANCES - EARLY 80'S

Recently unearthed photos have surfaced of Dundee alternative band - Severed Arm.
The images all come from around the 1982 period.
Top picture was taken at the Tayside Bar.
Middle shot has the guys striking a pose in the street.
Bottom image is the band on stage at an outdoor festival in Baxter Park.
A reminder of the line-up....Jim Low, vocals - Dave McDonald, guitar - John Anderson, bass - Cass, drums.
And a reminder of their sound....here below is a nifty little number captured during rehearsals up at Ardler Community Centre, recorded around the same time as the photos.
A nice bit of chainsaw guitar powering its way through the tune - a song called "Leave Me To My Own Devices".
Big thanks to Dave.

  3. Whats the artwork? Whitfield? Was that on the cover of the tape?

  4. The tape had no cover so GG has kindly done the artwork. The band were from Menzieshill and Ardler, so no Whitfield connection.
