Melodically catchy, musically adventurous, clever and poetic, exuding pure joy in concert, perpetually honest and friendly, and never taking themselves too seriously, clammbon is the finest art-pop-rock band in Japan, perhaps even in the whole world.
Established 2003, this is the most comprehensive English clammbon site on the Internet. I can say that because there are no other English clammbon sites on the Internet.
