Clutch is Neil Fallon, vox; Tim Sult, guitar; Dan Maines, bass; Jean-Paul Gaster, drums, and Mick Schauer, organ.
Clutch was born in the early '90s in Maryland, and is Neil Fallon, vox; Tim Sult, guitar; Dan Maines, bass; Jean-Paul Gaster, drums, and Mick Schauer, organ. Their sound has traversed many genres, including metal, southern rock, funk and some hardcore.
Their first LP Transnational Speedway League was released in 1993 and was followed by their self-titled full length two years later. Though both great pieces of work, no one was prepared for their 1998 release.
Elephant Riders was born, and in this one's opinion, this album pushed them up and out to listeners everywhere. It's littered with heavy guitar riffs and crazy, catchy tunes. Here's a sample from the title track:
On our way to Washington where work is done by men with gavels,
In 2001, Pure Rock Fury emerged. Three years later, in 2004 Blast Tyrant made it's way to ears. The album featured the single The Mod Goes Wild. Clutch was so well liked by Bam Margera and his crew, they shot a video featuring Ryan Dunn and numerous others. Here's a lyrical sample from The Mob Goes Wild :
21 guns, box made of pine, letter from the government sealed and signed
In 2003, Clutch produced side releases and rarities Jam Room (2000), Slow Hole to China and a variety of other projects.
Robot Hive/Exodus was born in 2005. This album rocks back and forth with different musical elements. From classic, heavy riffs to groovy, body-moving beats.
2007 showed to be an ascending year for the rockers. They released From Beale Street to Oblivion, a critically acclaimed album.
Clutch proves you don't have to be slathered all over TV and ads to be a huge hit. They love what they do and obviously others do as well. Clutch is a modern day, classic/southern rock band that will always leave impressions with every new release! Give them a second; disappointment surely will lack. Clutch lives here. ~Enjoy!
