Allen Clapp, from Redwood City (California), is a fan of
late-period Zombies and late-period Beach Boys.
The home-made album
One Hundred Percent Change Of Rain (Bus Stop, 1995),
credited to Allen Clapp and His Orchestra, is a humble tribute to that era.
Clapp then recruited
guitarist Larry Winther (formerly of the Mummies)
to form Orange Peels and release a more professional sounding album,
Square (Minty Fresh, 1997), comprising catchy tunes such as
I Don't Mind The Rain, Take Me Over, Love Coming Down,
a few eccentric takes on pop
(All The World Could Pass My By,
Something Strange Happens),
the ballad Everybody's Gone,
and a few eccentric takes on lounge music
(On The Way To Somewhere)
So Far (Spinart, 2000) offers the infectious
Girl For All Seasons and a few more derivative melodies
(Every Single Thing, The West Coast Rain).
Admirably consistent, Circling The Sun (Parasol, 2005) only lacks in
