    Al Carr & The Strong Arm


    'Following the launch of their debut album Gutter Truth in August this year, Al Carr & The Strong Arm have been playing regularly to crowds around Melbourne. Taking inspiration from a wide variety of artists from Tom Petty to The Replacements and a whole lot more in between they’re looking forward to kicking off 2018 at the Labor In Vain.

    Chief architect and band leader Al Carr, along with his ramshackle group of cohorts, has new ideas and songs spilling out of him. Songs that veer from gloriously sloppy rock ‘n’ roll through breezy pop stylings and soulful, country tinged ballads. Tunes guaranteed to have your feet tapping and leave you wanting more.'
