Stu, Mac and Clive is a band that has aged like the ingredients in a good wine. The more time that passes, the more robust the flavor is. Like a healthy grape vine, their roots stretch far into the underground. The three musicians used to play in the thrash/funk phenomenon known as High Defiance. They were one of the pioneers in blending metal, rap and hardcore with a live d.j. and growling gang vocals. In 1995 they achieved some light weight fame with their "Lessons From Hate" cd and were nominated for "Best Hardcore Band" in the Boston Music Awards. After 5 years of playing shows the band parted ways.
The High Defiance drummer (Clive) and one of the guitar players (Stu) kept playing in a new band called Bloodmask.
While Bloodmask was laying siege on the local mosh pits, the High Defiance bass player (Mac) played in both Nok and Curbfeeler after his departure from the group.
All this vast experience came back together in 2005 with the creation of Stu, Mac and Clive. Sometimes serious and sometimes comical these three wacko musicians brought their styles together to create a sound that is tough to categorize but easy to recognize as some kick ass American rock-n-roll. The end result is a progressive mix of metal and funk. The bands first five song c.d. named "Short $ for Sally" got them rolling in the local scene doing a few dozen club shows and small parties. In the spring of 2009 Stu, Mac and Clive released their first full length cd on Silly Hat Records. A dynamic ten song musical experience called, "Dirty World Supreme." The band is now primed and ready to take on all challenges so whatever the gig we guarantee a set that will keep the audience entertained and dancing.
