Honky Tonk Women

Here I am singing my guts out to The Rolling Stones’Honky Tonk Women” with David Newton of The Mighty Lemondrops, many years ago. We were at a party in downtown Los Angeles and The Henry Clay People were playing. Back then, I used to hop onto any stage I could find and I’m sure glad I did, because I love this photo.

This is my favorite verse from that song: ”I laid a divorcée in New York City / I had to put up some kind of a fight / The lady then she covered me with roses / She blew my nose and then she blew my mind”. Beautiful!

I hope you have a great weekend!

Infinite Nights

Happy Birthday to The Blood Arm‘s fourth album “Infinite Nights”- released on this day in 2013! 

Written largely on laptops when we first moved to Berlin, the record took an introspective and experimental turn. There’s something for everybody here- hard rockers, acoustic ballads, bedroom pop and even a surf workout. The album was made in the early days of crowdfunding, and since it was paid for by fans, we still hold it close to our hearts. 

Released via R.I.P. Ben Lee Records , “Infinite Nights” spawned two singles, the guitar-driven “Midnight Moan” and the gonzo-country-romp “Matters of the Heart”. Follow the link in our bio to see the videos for both, directed by Ivan Flugelman . CD copies of this album are still available via The Blood Arm’s website
