The Minneapolis group, which is probably off a Norse expression for something bent into a curve. Though these guys are virtually unheard of, they were actually formally established in the spring of 2009. The Arms Akimbo, formed by members Nick Schaser and Ian Schaser and Chris Dillon knew each other a decade beforehand and played together throughout the Twin Cities, as The Serfs. After the group disbanded in 2005, bassist and singer Nick moved to the UK, playing in London-based Brit pop band, Jack Maggs. After three years of living out of a backpack and crashing on couches, Nick returned to the US in 2009 and rejoined guitarist Chris and drummer Ian to form The Arms Akimbo.
