Greenhouse Effect and Clark Hagins Music has exploded on the internet and taken over cyberspace with Great melody, Songwriting, Singing, and web traffic galore ! Hagins' Surfing Sports Videos have been seen around the web for over five years and many of the songs were recorded almost entirely by him alone in 1992 as his band at the time was dissolving; "G.e. was slipping away but I was heading into the studio in El Segundo Calif. with engineer Billy Krodel with more Enthusiasm than I ever had before when i worked with Keegan or Carmody,.." Getting big views at places like Mefeedia, Vimeo, Blip Tv, and the biggest views at Funky Tv and Magnify.Net keep Hagins and his band exploits the biggest thing on the Net in over 200 Countries ! And Haggins isn't afraid to let loose and gush about anything, politically incorrect or otherwise; He blogs that he hates Rap and Hip Hop music as easily as he despises the Foo Fighters or Green Day or MTV or what he calls "Today's Lame Emo scene"; "All those fucking bands that pass for 'underground' and 'indie' suck now today" Says Hagins "I don't like Arcade Fire or Snow Patrol or any of that shit...or Mute Math ,...it ain't Songwriting,.." WHITE SUBURBAN LIAR$ is a Song where Hagins recorded all of the instruments and over-dubbed them himself in October / November 1992 with only the aid of Soundman Bill Krodel; "Fuck today's music,..I got more talent than these piece of shit Emo bands got,...and they know it" Says Haggins with anger. The 47 year old musician uses Google Adwords to constantly blast his music. In 1992, Haggins would lay down drum tracks as recorded by Krodel and then he would go into the console room to listen and approve of it and then would begin the painstaken process of adding his own guitar, bass, keyboards, and Lead vocal parts and many of the songs sound so good ( Like "People....That Won' Back Down" for example ) that they sound as if a whole band is playing and nobody can notice; "I think my great drumming is the key when I was tracking,..but my lead vocals are the shit" Says Haggins. Haggins music has been a tough sell to people as from back in his day on through until today he has had to battle what he calls "Amazing disrespect" for him from musical peers; "Way back in the day,..I was like this real small and skinnyish pale little dude who was five foot five,...and you know how guys and people are,...they only think yer good if you can beat them up,..or if yer like Prince and you were fortunate enough to have gotten a record deal while young,... for me, it was impossible,...Back in the South Bay ( Redondo Beach / Torrance Ca ),...they certainly do NOT respect or like little people ,...especially if the little person happens to be or think he's a musician,.... I couldn't get anybody to go to my gigs ,...My gigs were always empty ,..there was never anybody at them,..I had to always book with other bands to get a crowd,...and quite often, the crowds were very hostile and not receptive towards me and my band,.....I think that's why Ted finally just gave up and left (Laughs)" Greenhouse Effect Songs just about always touched on dangerous and uncomfortable touchy issues ,..sometimes involving things like race and drugs,..but that's the way Hagins says he was 'evolved' by his community; "You look at all my music today on the web and it is the shit,... if someone cranks up my music LOUD and listens to it,...they discover it is really fucking good,..it isn't just more run of the mill shit.." - Avoiding the "Run of the mill" is what Haggins strives for and gets and getting put down and disrespected is the fuel that keeps driving him; "Even now,...People say shit about me,...and when i'm around People - and I would say it pretty much has always been this way - I'm always cool to people but they always gotta gang up and somebody always has to say some mean nasty shit at me,....I'm 47 Years old today in 2011 and it is almost no different from 1991 when I was 26 Or 1981 when I was 16,.... I'm cool and mellow with People but they ain't that way to me at all " Friends have called and emailed Haggins and told him that it is 'because' he is so good that he takes all the abuse and 'thats' what happens to those kind of people; "I think that is bullshit ,..if someone is like Mega-talented,...You don't treat them like shit ,..that ain't cool and that ain't gonna help anything,...that's just white trash Douchebag culture is all that is !!,....'Try a little love and encouragement instead,...who knows ?? It might be a better plan !!" Haggins says he has discussed the theory that People are afraid that one will pass them by if they're nice to them; "I just think a lot of the People back in the South Bay are fucking Douchebags,... A lot of them are just drug addicted who get high and drunk ,... Most of them have no talent ,...they certainly don't have the kind of talent on the Level with Clark the Shark from G.e. and they know it,..... No,...the way I see it,...these fucking people have wrecked my life,...I'm a fucking Pool Cleaner now ??? Fuck that !!! I'm gonna tell it like it is !!,.....I shoulda made it way back then ,...and I probably would have with a little support ,..." ROCK CITY RECORDS 2011.
