The band Cackling Caklid was formed by the lead singer, Black Lock, and a few old friends of his. During performances, each band member wears black clothing and black and white facepaint that makes them look like Caklids. Cackling Caklid is known for what has come to be called Happy Funk where the singers make different sounds of laughter rather than singing lyrics. Many find it strange but there are a few who actually like to listen to it. Some other bands have been inspired by the Cackling Caklid to make their own Happy Funk music.
