Any Clutch Fans?

I don't expect many to reply to this thread, but check these guys out. I've been a huge Clutch fan for about 7 or 8 years now. I've been to four shows and they've always put on an amazing show. They've been labeled as a stoner rock, funk, jazz, metal, southern rock, and blues band. But they are a very straight-forward band; a punch in the mouth if you will. If you like groovy riffs, some amazing drumming and an absurdist poet singer then this is the band for you. They are a working man's band. Not much notoriety, but they have a cult following.

The lead singer/songwriter is Neil Fallon, a mammoth of a man (voice wise) who preaches his rock n' roll to anyone who will listen. His lyrical topics range from Abraham Lincoln to Medousa to Biblical figures to Cyborg Girlfriends. Very interesting and fun lyrics. Really off the wall stuff.

They've evolved there sound over the 20+ years they have played. Each record has it's own different vibe to it.

Here are some youtube videos of the diversity of their sound. Their new album, Earth Rocker, has been getting a lot of great reviews. They were just touring with Motorhead and Thin Lizzy...

I saw them at the Orange Peel two days after Christmas, this past year. They completely demolished that place. Five people got kicked out, the floor was shaking the entire night. They were on there A-game that night. I've seen a lot of different bands/people; Warren Haynes, John Paul Jones of Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, ZZ top, ect. And these guys put on the best show I have ever seen.

They also have another band, The Bakerton Group, more of a jazz/funk jam band.

...and he shall appear.... Bakerton is Clutch without their singer, some people don't like Neal's vocal...

Been going to see Clutch since about 1994, they used to play here every few months. Go see them every time they're here, went down to NagsHead to see them, but the best is up in DC. Absolutely recommend going to a show, best $20 you'll spend all year....

Not going to question that. Im not a big fan of instrumentals so I dont really listen to them. I have, however, seen Bakerton open for Clutch a few times, Neil was nowhere to be seen. I'll take a wrong here...

biscuit'll tell you, Ive been hollerin Clutch on here for years, started a few threads on them. Think catfang did the last talkin about Earth Rocker coming out. How fugged up is it that I got the new CD the day it came out & have not listened to it yet?

I spread some rep around just because.. Z got pie & rep for the Nashville Pussy reference, they are entertaining.....

Yea he's on the recordings, I've never been able to see them open up with Bakerton, though. Earth Rocker is the poo. It's back to that Blast Tyrant type of sound. My favorite song off the new album is my sig. Neil's voice sounds incredible on this album.
