As far as band names go, “The Phenomenal Handclap Band” is pretty descriptive and straightforward.  No fancy allusions, puns, or alliterations here.  It’s a band.  That likes handclaps.  That is phenomenal.  Which frankly, is perfectly fine and completely up my alley.  Below is a video for their song “15 to 20” which features a funky 70’s-era bass line, yet also weaves in a bit of a futuristic dancey feel, with some sonic effects and church bells.  The video itself is very cool as well – The Phenomenal Handclap Band has really worked off of the 70’s vibe and filmed 8 matching synced mini-movies, all reminiscent of old school cop or spy dramas.  Cool stuff.
