Album Notes
A Wasted Life (part II) 1990-2013 is a very different record than the already released parts I and III. Part I had a wealth of unavailable material to draw on, including the difficult to find initial recording the band did in 1980. Part III was a compilation of live shows encompassing the entire live career of the band. But just about everything the band has done since 1990 is now commercially available, (thanks to the rise of the Independent Music Industry) and so there was less pressure from within the Clams to document the second phase of their long life as a band. That probably explains the delay in releasing this recording. In the end they settled on a few unreleased singles they did early in the 1990s, some interesting demos of songs that were not included on either “My True Story” or “O.L.P.B.”, a couple of experiments done in their studio, and a eulogy recorded for a lost friend. To this they added a some remixed tracks from “M.T.S.”, “O.L.P.B.”, and “Redemption Song”, (Including a track that had been left off the final released version of “M.T.S.”) and added one new track and a couple of the singles they’ve released recently. The result is about 50% stuff that hasn’t been heard before, and an equal amount of slightly re-mixed stuff that Clam fans will recognize. I’m sure they will add more specifics on their website. The end result is that while listening to part I would give you a very good idea of what the band was in the 1970s and 1980s; part II gives you insights into stranger little corners in the minds of Applegate, Gelbstein, and Anderson (the three songwriters in B.F.P.C.F.O.S.) It is less a “Best Of” recording and more a “here’s something you haven’t heard before” recording. But it does finish the trilogy, and anyone listening to all three “A.W.L.s” would have a rather compleat understanding of the long and twisted story of this odd band.
