Shannon and the Clams - Runaway

Full review to follow. I mostly went to this show on a hunch, having dug when I saw Shannon Shaw as part of Hunx & His Punx. Her own band has a similar vibe, but with less punkish attitude and camp verve, there's more room for pure rock'n'roll glory. The pedal-to-floor race through "Runaway" gives a pretty good indication where they're coming from, and there were plenty two-minute-flat originals that were channelling that same spirit. Sweaty fun that had the packed dancefloor shaking right from the get-go.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
