((The Phenomenal Handclap Band)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The Phenomenal Handclap Band

Remember when Greg Brady decided he wanted to have his own "pad?" So Mike gives him access to the attic(what a dad!) and then Greg tricks it all out with lava lamps and funky red lights and shag throws and stuff? Brooklyn's The Phenomenal Handclap Band should have been the first record Greg spun in his new crash "pad."

This big band of seven play groovy rock disco that the kids will really dig. Even Jan can get down to this jive. Plenty of slinky synths, retro organs and popping percussion are going on here. The band's first full-length is out on Friendly Fire, so be sure to pick it up if you're going to start a "pad" of your own.

Although, didn't it suck when all the Bradys decided to go on vacation or to the ice cream store or something while Greg felt he needed to stay in his "pad," but after they all left, he realized that he missed his family and his "pad" really wasn't all it was cracked up to be? Ah, the struggles of a boy becoming a man. It's not always groovy.
