Shannon and the Clams
After the rainstorm, Saturday looked bright
Say Anything, Dum Dum Girls, Bleached, Shannon And The Clams, and Best Coast… just another week on the carson Daley Show where the former MTV wunderkind continues to present the same thing as everyone else and then a little more. It was carson who aired that terrific Screaming Females segment a couple of months ago. The ringer here is the terrific 50s inspired doo woppy meets garage Shannon And The Clams.
