C-Clamp is a duo consisting
of Tom Fitzgerald (vocals, guitars, keys) and
Nick Macri (bass, vocals, percussion). They were a trio until drummer
Frantz Etienne left the band in 1999. Over the course of the past four
years, C-Clamp have recorded two full length albums and a 12" EP
for Ohio Gold; 1996's "Meander + Return" (OHAU-001), "The
Saving Daylight EP" Limited 12" Engraved Single (OHAU-004),
and the 1999 full length, "Longer Waves" (OHAU-007). Musically,
C-Clamp place an emphasis on rhythm, texture, and a sense of space while
maintaining a subtle melodic sense vocally. The songs tend to burn
at a slow pace over a six minute course rather than fading away in three.
At their essence, C-Clamp's songs are simply pop songs that require a
little patience. C-Clamp tend to play shows only when all of the planets
are in proper alignment.
