Half Deaf Clatch - http://www.halfdeafclatch.com
"With a growl that makes Chris Rea sound like one of the Chipmunks and slide-guitar skills that would make Ry Cooder green with envy, Half Deaf Clatch is as old-school as you can get. Armed with nothing more than a resonator guitar and a wooden stomp-block, the Hull Bluesman sticks to the winning formula of last year's 'A Road Less Travelled', with a selection of raw, hypnotic tracks that mark him out as a natural successor to Seasick Steve. The moody and atmospheric 'Hill Country Rain' sounds like it was recorded in the heart of Mississippi (technically, it was deepest, darkest Hull...), while 'Get Your Stomp On' will duly have you beating out the rhythm with your boots. He might not have the budget of megastars such as Bonamassa, but Half Deaf Clatch is an authentic Bluesman for these times."
