Shaw’s Trailer Park
Shaw’s Trailer Park evolved from T’s utopian dream to create a garage band collective on his doorstep here in the park. Warhol’s Factory on the South Coast. But what he ended up with was much more Magnificent….Five!

“One from Brooklyn”
an album by the Matt Clark Three, really a solo project by Matt Clarke . I am on a few tracks (2,4 and 6) https://mattclarkthree.bandcamp.com/
A UK band with a sound that might have come about if New York No Wave had spent a lost weekend in New Orleans. Add to that hints of dive bar jazz, delta blues, East European folk and the dark lure of cabaret, and you have the seductive circus fanfare that is CAAW! https://caaw.bandcamp.com/
