Following - Phenomenal Handclap Band

from the album Form & Control (2012)

Phenomenal Handclap Band emerges from the New York City club scene.  They produce a mixture of club music and indie rock that spans the past 35 years of genres and styles.  If you are the type of person who knows you like a song when your body parts start moving, this band is for you.

Following is the song on Form & Control that I listen to most.  Disco and the 80's collide here with great results.  It might take you back to the days when you drove around in your Datsun, disco ball dangling from the rear view mirror, headed for a club that played your favorite tunes.

I read that Phenomenal Handclap Band has played several dates opening for Bryan Ferry.  That makes perfect sense to me.  I've also read on the band's web page that after a tough summer touring Europe, the band has decided to leave the indie music scene and return to NYC and immerse itself in its underground club roots.  I wish them well.

  1. This song did all of the above...made me move multiple body parts, and reminisce about those days driving around in what would have been a Datsun a couple of years earlier, but was instead my beautiful red '86 Nissan 200SX- (sigh...) that did actually have a sparkly ball hanging from the rear-view! And yes, usually I was headed to an awesome LI club, where we danced 'til we dropped at 4 AM. Good times...Great song- thanks for the memories.

  2. I had a disco ball in my Jeep. Cool tune.
