Video: Shannon & The Clams bring “The Bog” to life with new video

There's no stopping their momentum: they just released a video for their GBTD cut "The Bog" that so wonderfully fits the retro vibe of the jaunty, garage-y tune.

I will always get starstruck when I see Shannon Shaw out and about, because the 19 year old inside me that cried along to her voice just freezes when I see her. They met at the same college I went to (California College of the [...]
