VIDEO: SHANNON AND THE CLAMS “CORVETTE”
Tragi-surreal new video by director Loren Risker (of OutOfFocus.TV!) for Shannon and the Clams‘ “Corvette,” lead single from their Gone by the Dawn album coming this fall on Hardly Art! Here Shannon and co. take the “cry” outta John Waters’ Cry-Baby and turn it into Shadow Morton-style doomed romance—it’s like if Mickey Baker played guitar for the Shangri-Las! (Really, the only thing missing is an overpowering car-engine sound effect somewhere.) Shannon and the Clams play their first show of the summer this Saturday at the Getty, and L.A. RECORD is lucky enough to DJ—so get your Corvette to valet parking and see you there!
