Shannon And The Clams - The Cult Song

hometown: Oakland, CA

categories: Garage, Indie Rock, Punk

for fans of: The Ronettes, The Go-Go's, Hunx & His Punx

why you should check them out:
Shannon and the Clams are one of a growing list of Bay Area revivalist groups that evoke nostalgia for the early days of rock'n'roll and doo-wop, but with a decidedly modern sound and punk aesthetic. Wielding the past with a campy attitude and whimsical lyrics, they draw you into their musical time machine and unfold the future.

background check:
The three members of Shannon & The Clams met as students and housemates, at the California College of the Arts in the musically diverse city of Oakland, where they have firmly planted their evocative roots. Bassist, namesake, and future Jon Waters diva Shannon Shaw belts out fantastical tales about the allure of cults, "The Cult Song"; protecting those you love from injury, "Baby Don't Do It"; and misunderstood mutant babies, "Toxic Revenge", balancing a serious lyrical tone with a playful exuberance. She has immersed herself in the genre, serving double duty as the bassist for Hunx And His Punx, another retro Bay Area band with a similar, yet more understated sound. Their live shows implore raucous sing-alongs and sweaty work-outs so put that grease in your hair boys, don't forget your poodle skirt ladies, and let's bee-bop on down to the clambake at a handful of festivals and western tour dates this summer.

    They try to recreate something from the 60′s but fail to realize that the song comes before anything else. They get an A for effort and fail on songwriting.
