ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1997, Rawbird Leigh and Paul Pot got together with Gail Todd to form the Happy Clams in Mudville, CA. They played parties for a couple of years, most notably a couple of parties at the Temple Room of an Aleister Crowley coven in Oakland. They played a gig in San Jose where they were asked if they knew any songs that people in the bar might know. Paul Pot said, "We know an Elvis song."

"What song?" it was asked.

"Do the Clam."

"I think you'd better get off the stage," was the response. As the band was packing up, a concerned patron said that, if they learned “La Bamba”, their career would take off.. The career trajectory continued on along those lines, during which time Gail mysteriously disappeared. Trevor Wencil (now the drummer of Hijack the Disco) took up the bass role in 2002. The band played a number of gigs, opening for The Cables, featuring Mike Flinn. Then that bass player mysteriously disappeared.

Guy Michel, who Paul Pot met while playing open mics, joined the band in May 2003 at a show that was billed as "In the Pink" at a coffee shop called A Cuppa Tea. There were to be a number of shows at A Cuppa Tea over the next couple of years. At each of the Cuppa Tea shows the band would give out a piece of ephemera. These never-to-be-seen-again items ranged from buttons to Xmas ornaments to hankies, all emblazoned with the Happy Clams logo! Some day they will actually be worth the time and materials used to make them.

In May 2005, the Happy Clams embarked upon the recording and production of their first CD under the watchful eye of Harlan Hollander. Things progressed. Things slowed. The watchful eye got sleepy. Years passed. Lines appeared on faces. The salmon disappeared. Still no meaningful contact with any life forms in the universe other than our own......... One day the CD was complete! Paul and Robert looked around and discovered that yet another bass player had disappeared. Harlan Hollander's watchful eye reopened and he stepped into the breach to fill the void while a search took place. No stone was left unturned. No roadside ditch was left unexamined. The bay was dredged. Suspects were questioned.

In 2008, Gail Todd returned to the Happy Clams.

There is joy in Mudville.
