Claxton Mood was the inspiration of Taffy Whelan after his previous band, A VACANT LOT, had broken up.  Claxton Mood quickly won followers and friends through their regular gigs, as well as their touring throughout the country.  The band even managed to fit in a gigging trip to Beira in Mozambique, an “experience” which left them with many a memory!
