CLUTCH - LIVE AT ROADBURN (2007)

Yeah, I wasn't gonna share any of these. Not after I plead for your help, and you, the G.O.M.E. faithful as a whole lifted MAYBE three fuckin' fingers. At the end of the day, though, you guys are FOR MUSIC. You're here to GET it, not SEND it, and I have to respect that. A lot of you have been much more active with the comments, and I definitely appreciate it. Aside from the crossdressing one-nutter that hates the MELVINS, you're all very cool, and I'll do what I can to keep bringing you the music you want.

That said, as a small token of my gratitude, here's another set from the mighty CLUTCH - this time from last month's Roadburn Festival. This set is actually very similar to the set I caught just a couple of weeks ago in Lawrence, KS. I do think the band is a bit more well-oiled six weeks later (they're already unveiling new tunes), but this is a kickass show. Plus, to my knowledge, it's the only 2007 soundboard circulating. Look out for FIVE HORSE JOHNSON's Eric Oblander, who's touring with CLUTCH, on harp and backing vocals. Highlights include...well...the whole fuckin' thing, but it gets no better than "White's Ferry". Some folks will complain because of the overwhelming number of new songs played (eight of 12), but fuck, man, they're from 2007's best rock album (though it might be 1A to CALLISTO's 1B)! A+ performance of A+ material with A+ quality. Enjoy.

1. You Can't Stop the Progress
2. Power Player
3. The Devil & Me
4. White's Ferry
5. (Notes from the Trial of) La Curandera
6. Mr. Shiny Cadillackness
7. Electric Worry
8. One Eye Dollar
9. I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth
10. Rapture of Riddley Walker
11. Child of the City
12. Red Horse Rainbow

Besides Elephant Riders Clutch can do no wrong. beale street wasn't as good as Robot Hive/Exodus But stilllight years ahead of the crap most bands put out. I appreciate every single one of your posts.

Rinjo--

Not a fan of The Elephant Riders? That surprises me. I love that album. The horns get a little old towards the end, but it certainly makes for a unique record. I'd put "8 Times Over", "Dragonfly", and especially "Soapmakers" among Clutch's very best. Different strokes, I guess. I love Beale Street, too. I think it continues the progression from Blast Tyrant through Robot Hive. Who knows where they'll stop next?
