Punch The Clown (LINK UPDATED MARCH 27, 2010)

Punch The Clown was a band from Davis California that formed in 1992 and recorded 3 fill length cds before breaking up in 1999. They mixed the 2 Tone sound with other musical influences and a lot of humor without ever going the route of the third wave sound. Alternating male and female vocals.
