Formed in 1991 in Germantown, Maryland singer Neil Fallon, guitarist Tim Sult, bassist Dan Maines and drummer Jean Paul “JP” Gaster took the name of Clutch to represent their stoned-out funk. They hustled up a mid-sized van and started playing shows up and down the eastern seaboard. Granted their sound was still developing. Some nights it was more of a Zeppelin/Sabbath mix, other nights it was more hardcore with a Faith No More vibe. Their persistence was matched by their determination and the crowds started to build. As the years went on, the sound evolved into a unique combination of fuzzy hard rock and heavy blues. This Barking Chicken Production focuses on the albums “Blast Tyrant” (2004), “Robot Hive/Exodus” (2005) and “From Beale Street to Oblivion” (2007). This era saw an expansion of sound including the liberal use of keyboards and even the addition of keyboardist Mick Schauer from 2005–2008.
