Clutch combined elements of funk, Led Zeppelin, and metal with vocals inspired by Faith No More. Formed in1991inGermantown, MD, the group included Neil Fallon (vocals), Tim Sult (guitar), Dan Maines (bass), and Jean-PaulGaster(drums).They built a local following through constant gigging, and after just one 7" single (the classic Earacherelease"PassiveRestraints") Clutch was signed by EastWest Records. Their debut LP, Transnational Speedway League,followed in1993. Aself-titled album appeared two years later and afforded Clutch some mainstream exposure. They jumped tothelargerColumbia label for 1998's Elephant Riders, and many thought the group might join their sonic cousins Korn andDeftonesin thealternative metal winner's circle. That didn't quite happen. But it didn't matter, because a quality fan basecontinued tothrivefor Clutch. Pure Rock Fury appeared in 2001, and the similarly uncompromising Blast Tyrant came threeyears later astheirfirst for DRT Records. Their seventh full-length, Robot Hive/Exodus, followed in 2005 and featured the firstlineupchangesince the early '90s, the addition of organist Mick Schauer. Among Clutch's numerous side releases were agroove-basedalbum (2000's Jam Room), as well as Live at the Googolplex and the rarities record Slow Hole to China, bothissued in2003.Also issued in 2005, Pitchfork & Lost Needles combined Clutch's 1991 Pitchfork 7" with unreleased demos andearlytracks. Inthe fall of 2006, the band hit the studio with producer Joe Barresi (Kyuss, Melvins) to record their next album;theresultingFrom Beale Street to Oblivion appeared in March 2007. In 2008, the band released a CD/DVD compilation oflivetracks fromshows in New Jersey, Pittsburgh, and Sydney titled Full Fathom Five: Audio Field Recordings 2007-2008 ontheirown label,Weathermaker Music. The band followed up in 2009 with Strange Cousins from the West, before deliveringtheirtenth album,Earth Rocker, in 2013. « hide
