Biography

Clutch is name of at least two bands:

A Germantown, MD, USA band:
Rock band which formed in the early-90s. Members include: Dan Maines (bass), Tim Sult (guitar), Jean-Paul Gaster (drums) and Neil Fallon (vocals, guitar, harmonica). Their recording début was EP Pitchfork (Oct 1991).

Each of Clutch’s albums is marked by its own distinct and cohesive sound and the band’s musical style may be said to have migrated from hardcore punk to hard rock and blues over the course of their career. Clutch’s lyrics, at first angry and serious in tone, had by the time of 1993’s Transnational Speedway League become characterized by intelligence, wordplay, and often humour (although comedy is not usually the focus). Their songs make frequent reference to history, mythology, popular culture, and religion. Bam Margera often uses Clutch songs in his MTV show “Viva La Bam.”

The members of Clutch often perform on albums with other bands as well as side projects. JP played drums on Five Horse Johnson’s album The Mystery Spot. Neil Fallon sang some backing vocals for Dozer’s Beyond Colossal album as well as a side project called The Company Band. The band also has a side band they perform in called The Bakerton Group. The music consists of all instrumental jams with a blues feel to it.

Clutch has often performed more than 100 shows per year since their formation. They are managed by Jack Flanagan out of NYC.

    Definitely one of the most consistent bands there is. Not a single bad album. [2]

    Went to a concert of theirs a few days ago, and I find it amazing how much they sound like their albums when they're live.

    @ohlongjohnson64: For me personally, Strange Cousins lacks big classic tunes that each Clutch album usually brings to the table. I always got the impression that the band weren't totally happy with it either, because they have never played Strange Cousins-focused setlists, even when the album just came out. However, it is an important album in Clutch's career purely for the fact it was the first Clutch album released on Weathermaker.

    @Vod_Crack Strange Cousins was alright compared to the others but even then it still had some songs that were the shit

    @Beojiko. Agreed though I think Strange Cousins From The West is the closest thing to treading water they've done so far.
