“Blue Today” from 2010. Recorded at Studio in the Country.
Recorded in a concrete shed in Lake Oaks back in 1989, A Week of Kindness was Clones at Play’s first recording session, engineered by bass-player Michael J. Schafer. The band also consisted of Ben Mumphrey on guitar, Pablo “Paul” on vocals and Mark Skains on drums. The average age of the band members was 15, the youngest being 12, the oldest 18. Still a fun little album nearly 30-years on.
“Man of the Year”
“It’s in the Posse”

Listen to “Lovely Trip,” by Loudness War, from their new third album, The Miser:
Compact Discs have arrived from the factory and gatefold LPs are on the way! The Miser, by Loudness War, will be the band’s third album, and their first for Transylvania. Produced and recorded by Benjamin Mumphrey at Studio in the Country. Check it out online now!
“Loudness War takes no prisoners. The Miser – the third album by the neo-psychedelic rock band from Baton Rouge – shows the hard, heavy rock influence of Black Sabbath, Nirvana, and Weezer. Loudness War’s ever-deepening well of original songs, tempos made for head bobbing and primal riffs make the quartet a young band to watch.”
Loudness War is (L-R) Ryan Welsh, Matthew Urquhart, Stevie Spring, and Quinn Tull.
After more than two decades, Clones at Play make it to the internet with two full albums: ‘Pataphysics is the Game, recorded between 1990 & 1992, and The Return of Marmalade, recorded between 1993 & 1994.
An excellent aspect is the background vocals, performed by “The Clone Sisters,” Christina and Kathleen Mumphrey.
A bit silly and a bit soulful, but not half-bad for a bunch of teenagers! Give the Clones a listen!
From ‘Pataphysics is the Game, “Blow Pop”
From The Return of Marmalade, “Put Another Hair in my Beard”
