SEPTEMBER 22, 2016
The Clap formed in the fall of 1978 in Catasauqua Pennsylvania.
Johnny Loftus (vocals and bass) is the only original member of the band to last the entire career.
Their first 7", "Don't Say No" / "Killed by Kindness" is a legitimate punk classic.
Evidence? "Killed by Kindness" ended up on the "Killed By Death Vol 22" album. In case you don't have all the Killed By Death albums, you should. You should also track down a copy of this 7" for your Lehigh Valley and Punk Rock collection!
The two tracks from the first 7" can also be found on the "Clean Living and Penicillin" CD. Give the songs a listen at these links:
Looking forward to seeing the Clap as they open for Menace on their current Fall 2016 tour!
