San Francisco provocateurs Inflatable Boy Clams recorded
one of the greatest all-female art punk records ever made, a
wrongfully obscure five-song double 7-inch EP which has
garnered a cult following ever since its initial release on
Subterranean Records in 1981. While the music blends
simple instrumentation and captivating, quirky lyrics,
the artwork looks like an early Rough Trade single, complete
with a posh Winogrand-esque photo of the group.
More of a performance art troupe than a traditional rock
band, the Boy Clams often rotated between instruments and
shared vocal duties: JoJo Planteen, Judy Gittelsohn and
Carol Detweiler (the latter two both members of Pink Section),
along with saxophone player Genvieve Boutet de
Monvel.
It is easy to imagine Planteen dancing to “Skeletons”
with its infectious bassline and kitschy organ (or even to
the flip-side track “Snoteleks,” which is the A-side played
backward). “I’m Sorry” is the ultimate one-upmanship
song that reveals that women can be sinister, too.
This first-time reissue comes from the original master
tapes. Recommended for fans of Kleenex / LiLiPUT, Raincoats
and Bush Tetras.

1. Skeletons
