“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

“The first thing that strikes you is the bellowing growl of vocalist James Allan… elevating an already great tune into something to behold. It's difficult to believe this is only their second single; they have the confidence and the fully formed ideas of seasoned old pros. A first-rate single on more than one level.” The Sound Of Confusion

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

“Seriously these songs are really good… a hugely enjoyable surprise, imaginative, exciting and perhaps the start of a new genre – crazy-pirate-folk-rock.” Can You Hear This

“I think I could confidently predict that Glasgow’s MUMMY SHORT ARMS are probably the best band you haven’t yet heard.” 10/10 Loud Horizon (Change)

“I am always banging on about wanting to hear something original. Well I guess it's safe to say that this is like nothing else that's going on in Scotland at the moment.” Peenko

“Like a really amped up Dylan singing over the tightest and coolest backing band around.” A Pocket Full of Seeds

"pure alternative perfection" Can You Hear This

“Exactly the type of song I want to hear on the radio.” Scots Whay Hae

"Imagination, it would seem, is back in fashion.” 5/5 Bluesbunny

“The most unique musical voice that's been witnessed in a long, long time.” Dead Earnest

“Genius!" 10/10 Loud Horizon (Cigarette Smuggling)


Still working on that hot first release.
