Song of the day – 229: Shannon And The Clams
Damn. I want to see this band play live.
Folk tell me they’re killer. I can well believe it. This shit from Oakland CA is off the hook! Like The Detroit Cobras or Best Coast, only brutal and way more fuzzed. Like Dracula having a monster party. Total distortion on a total love for the girl group harmonies of the Sixties. Total enthusiasm, and a rasp. Give me a weird hug, and we’ll remain best of friends… least till someone more fascinating comes your way. Or maybe it’s Pebbles? Who know, and who the fuck cares.
Here is the MySpace. Be prepared to bask.
