The Clams emerged to some acclaim amid Minneapolis' post-Punk music scene, during the mid-1980s.

They are often considered among the most noteworthy acts of the era, locally, and mainly due to the fact that they were among only a handful of all-female acts that performed in what is generally acknowledged as post-Punk music scene dominated by all-male acts.

Their sound is a combination of classic American garage-rock and American post-punk -truly Power Pop- and with an admitted Rolling Stones influence.

Reformed for a one-off performance in 2009, and with only a handful of releases during their heyday:

"Exile On Lake Street" - 12" Album. Imaginary Records - IMG 6001, 1988.
"Train Song / Crazy Boys" - 7" Single. Imaginary Records - IMG 509, 1987.
"What's Wrong With This Picture / Sad Times" - 7" Single. Susstones - IMS 508, 1986.
