Bang Bang Bang Bang. Vaminos vaminos.


January 29, 2013 by Thomas Pluck

This is “Electric Worry” by the prog rock band Clutch. They may chafe at the term progressive rock but they sing about Riddley Walker, Minotaurs and have a delightfully absurd sense of humor. I recommend their album “From Beale Street to Oblivion” without reservation. My sister introduced me to them, and their album “Strange Cousins from the West” is also a great listen.

Doctor or lawyer I’ll never be
Life of a drifter, the only life for me
You can have your riches, all the gold you saved
Ain’t but room for one thing in everybody’s grave

    Sounds more like southern-fried electric blues to me – very southern-fried good electric blues, too…

  2. Thomas Pluck says:

    Yeah, I’m no good at genre pigeonholing… their other stuff is more hard rock. “You Can’t Stop Progress” “Power Player” and “Mr. Shiny Cadillackness” are very bitingly funny.
