San Francisco Punk Pranksters: Pink Section, Inflatable Boy Clams
Richie Unterberger, Please Kill Me!, 19 August 2020
Influenced by the punk scene centered at Mabuhay Gardens, and the fun, bohemian spirit of a city that was, back then, an affordable place to live, Judy Gittelsohn and Carol McClellan formed two different, musical contingents. One was Pink Section, using the B-52s as a model (two girls, two boys) and the other was Inflatable Boy Clams, an all-girl improvisational outfit. Both bands released singles, including the controversial 'I'm Sorry', and truly embodied the DIY spirit of the city before the deaths of Harvey Milk and George Moscone.
