Catch up on the History of Clutch with a New Series of Audio Clips
I don’t know about you guys, but as the weather starts to warm up and my soul breaks free from the frostbitten shackles of winter, I find myself craving more rockin’ tunes. My most consistent mainstay for summer jamz has been rock legends extraordinaire Clutch. As you may or may not know, Clutch currently have a new album in the works as a follow-up to 2013’s monstrous Earth Rocker, and I cannot wait. Thankfully, Neil Fallon and co have decided to keep us satisfied by releasing a series of audio clips discussing some of their most memorable tunes.
The first clip, discussing “Abraham Lincoln” went live on April 15th, the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination. From the horse’s mouth:
This is the first in a series of clips we will be making public over the next couple of weeks and months. In these clips I speak about Clutch songs, both older and younger, and explain my thinking behind the lyrics. The loose theme under which the tracks were picked is myth and mythology. Stay tuned to Clutch’s facebook page for more of these. As today marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s death, it seems only appropriate to begin this series with our song, “Abraham Lincoln.”
Check out the audio clip to learn a little about the history of this song and some neat factoids about the U.S.
Clutch will dropping more of these videos over the coming weeks, so stay tuned. I can’t wait for “Spacegrass”.
Now, as a preemptive strike against those of you who dislike this band and who intend to post some irrelevant video in the comments, here’s what I want you to do. Share your warm weather jams with us. I’ve shown you mine, so now you show me yours.
