"480 Minutes" - new Shannon And The Clams

No matter how great the music is today, it likely can't top the first video at the bottom of this post.  Check out Hüsker Dü on local St. Paul, MN daytime TV in 1986. Everything about it is priceless, from Grant's awful mullet to the polite applause (and sideways glances) of the audience.

Here in the U.S. it's Memorial Day weekend, a time to honor those fallen in wars past and present, and the traditional start to our summer.  It's also a time to barbecue, and I'm personally looking forward to grilling up a storm with friends on Sunday.  How will you be spending your holiday weekend?

Today's edition of 480 Minutes will debut new songs by BNLX (Minneapolis, MN), Brazos (Brooklyn, NY), Daft Punk (Paris, France), Hermitude (Sydney/Blue Mountains Australia), Laura Marling (London, England), Lumerians (Oakland/SF, CA), Man or Astro-man (Auburn, AL), pacificUV (Athens, GA), Radical Dads (Brooklyn, NY), Secret Colours (Chicago, IL), Shannon And The Clams (Oakland, CA), W.H.I.T.E. (Los Angeles, CA), and Wampire (Portland, OR).

Requests are taken during the live-hosted hours (9 a.m. - 5 p.m Pacific Time) via e-mail and IM:

Hearing from you makes us just plain giddy!
