Club Of The Sons

BandR&BSoul

OddSoul. DarkPop. JunkJazz. Sounds like Bowie locked in the basement of a vacant church with a multitude of old broken drums, analog synths, a sampler, and all his favorite R&B records.

Biography

"I heard the broken bones from the skeleton of Swamp City rumbling in my dreams.
There were ten mutant neon rats playing the most hyper-fantastic sounds I had ever heard.
There were faces built of fog with mouths full of nectar cream snowball
moving from every ward to ward feeding those who were asleep in the water.
There were friendly ghosts in every building just dying for some kind of action.
Then, just as it was getting real deluxe...I woke up and picked up the phone. It was Time.
Time, she can be a whispering elusive bitch...but that night she made it clear that this was our spot.
She said come home."

This is the moment LaClave recalls knowing that he would move back to New Orleans after three years of being away. Despite the fact that Club Of The Sons had already written and recorded a full length record and played shows across the country, this now marks the true prelude to the story.

After almost two years of major label showcase fun-n-games soon to be followed by Hurricane Katrina, Adam LaClave and Jonathan Allen went to Memphis where they would begin deconstructing everything they had done with the previous band MACROSICK to begin something new that soon became more than they had planned it to be.
Inspired by LaClaves Memphis born and raised black gospel roots; often refered to as his "punk stage"; their shared love of old Stax recordings, and Bowies "plastic soul" period ...the two started creating songs that were somewhere inside their own made up self indulgent genre. They then spent the next two years recording, building up the live band, and doing some local shows and a good bit of coast to coast touring with previous bandmates MuteMath.
Now all back in New Orleans, the band is writing and recording new material for their second record
Psychic Dream Twin...while putting the final touches on their first piece Young Quanta.
