"This is what live music is supposed to be: fun, raucous rock & roll with get-nasty guitars, tight harmonies, down and dirty lyrical themes, and a superbly locked-in rhythm section. I could see these Clams sharing the bill with artists like the Old 97s, Drive By Truckers, or Rev Horton Heat, no problem."

"Maryland's Roadhouse Clams is my pick for March (2010) Band of the Month. I really love their songwriting, but 'Playground Politics' in particular is one of the best tracks that I've heard in a very long time. From the depth of the lyrics, to the phenomenal building crescendo that seems to come out of nowhere in the end, it's a track that simply blew me away."
RadiOasis, WLVR, Bethlehem, PA
"Their harmonies are excellent and connect well with great songs that are catchy, well-written, and easily accessible."
