So, this is my other band with my bud Clay. Yep, two guys with no hair named Clay. He is from Canada and well, I live L.A. but am from Minnesota. We met in Chiba, Japan in 04' (both were teaching English) but later moved to Tokyo and started a band called Mock Duck. We played some shows there and have since played some in L.A. and once in Mexico. We have been collaborating across the sea and play shows when I go there and when he comes here. We finally got some recording done and here they are. Our new E.P. Altars of Radness. This is what the other Clay says about us, "2 Clays x 3 Chords = MOCK DUCK. Pretty much everything we've recorded is now available for free download at our new Bandcamp site. It's not much to look at, but the price is right. Recommended for anyone who lost significant amounts of hearing going to see rad bands in the late 90s." You can download it for free. It's been reviewed a view times already and getting some mad love, this one blog gave it a 9.5 out of 10. This is what it said:

"Amazing-ly grungey punkrock.

Mock Duck is a two-piece outfit from L.A./Tokyo. I came across this in the blogospere. They have a punkrock vibe reminiscent of the late 80's/early 90's sound of the Pac NW. Mudhoney/Wipers really come to mind when I hear this. They also sound a bit like Boris' rock n' roll side (not so much the psyche side) which is obviously the Japanese connection.

This EP fucking rules."

How nice. Get it and crank it up if you are feeling a lil saucy.
