The Clam Tostada / Bio

The Clam Tostada operates under the unobtrusive auspices of an unarranged tribal anarchy. The primordial Clam Tostada (circa 2001) was an acoustic duo formed in the heart of Tucson in Barrio Sin Nombre, featuring Mark Anthony Febbo on guitar and Mark D. Ryan on bass. Many of these songs’ basic arrangements were birthed in
those early years, with Ryan’s melodic bass offering the songs’ hooks and grooves. In 2007 T. Greg Squires joined, bringing the wisdom of a sonic shaman, aiding not only with vision, but with re-vision. Thus, the Clam was born again in a more dynamic form, having gone on a walkabout and seen things anew. In 2008, Bruce Blackstone sauntered onto the scene with lead guitar and harmonica in tow. Blackstone and Squires had played together previously in the Rusty Boys and the Wayback Machine. From the inception of the Clam Tostada it has been common at live shows to see friends from other bands come sit-in for impromptu jams. The additional players on the latest collection of songs, "Amusing Neanderthals: Since One Million Years B.C.," are a representation of this element—an important part of the eclectic sound that is the Clam Tostada.
