More Obscure Than Obscure - Still More Halloween Music
This site was inspired by a New Wave message board posting entitle "More Obscure Than Obscure". I was going to use that as the title to this blog but what's obscure to one person is common to another. I think it would be tough to argue that San Francisco's kookie all-girl-band Inflatable Boy Clams are more obscure than obscure. They released a double 7" containing 5 songs on Subterranean Records in 1981. That's it. They got a lot of airplay around Halloween, particularly from Rodney Bingenheimer on KROQ in L.A. The record was produced by Voice Farm's Myke Reilly. The band was Carol Detweiler - bass, drums, organ, vocals, JoJo Planteen - bass, vocals, Judy Gittelsohn - organ, slide guitar, bass, vocals and Genvieve Boutet de Monvel - sax. You can read more about them at this tribute site which is were I got this information from.
