The Birth of KLYAM

On April 12, 1954 Bill Haley recorded “Rock Around the Clock,” thus giving birth to Rock and Roll. What most people don’t know is that Bill Haley gave birth to two babies that night. Rock and Roll’s half retarded, fucked up twin brother was lost, abandoned for years, until suddenly in June 2009 he returned to the public eye as KLYAM (pronounced clam) or Kids Like You & Me as he is sometimes known by his friends.


Start Rioting!

*KLYAM for this purpose= Chris and Glen

Quote of the Day

Mark Sultan on playing to unfamiliar audiences:

“In places like Cambodia, you go in there and they have no idea what you’re doing. There may be five people there or 50, but they have no idea what that sound is. By the time you’re done, maybe you’ve got one hooked. That’s how this works. One person at a time, just like a disease.”

Comments: Good stuff. To me, it’s rather run of the mill rock and roll (appropriate title) that plays like your (above) average power-pop/garage rock revue. Not too much on here blows my mind, but there are a lot of fun listens to be had. I’ve read about Black Lips comparisons and that’s simply not appropriate or fair. These guys are more Nobunny than Lips. Lyrically and musically.

Grade: B+ (88)
