Saturday Song to Get Stoned To



clutchbandMe and my advanced reptilian brain (ahem, rather: ‘my advanced reptilian brain and I’) were never the biggest fans of stoner rock mainstays Clutch, but they sure did make it hard to hate on their simple n stony hardcore-flavored early jamz from the beginning of the gay 90s.

These daze the spirited Maryland band is still goin, allbeit in a much blusier thump-rock fashion — currently on the road in Europe and soon back in the States, whilst gearin up to release yet another album this July entitled Strange Cousins From The West. Congrats on th’longevity!

Now pass the ten-footer this way, k?

clutchCLUTCH – “Big News I”, from Clutch (1995)

CLUTCH – “Spacegrass”, from Clutch (1995)

CLUTCH – “Binge and Purge”, from Transnational Speedway League (1993)

“Come on motherfucker, come on motherfucker, come on motherfucker — LET’S THROW DOWN….just try me, just try me — what are you waiting for?!?”

TRIVIA FACTOID: drummer Jean-Paul Gaster played drums on Wino‘s recent solo album Punctuated Equilibrium, and has also worked with Opeth keyboardist Per Wiberg on a side project that will hopefully see daylight soon. with the other Clutch dudes too (minus vocals) called The Bakerton Group, which we’ve actually discussed before. Duh.

Clutch (and JP Gaster w/Wino) tour dates after the jump the jump.
