I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Ol' Death Train - Half Deaf Clatch

Half Deaf Clatch (a.k.a Andrew McLatchie) is one man with a guitar, slide, stompboard and some songs. Playing resonator blues and stamping on a homemade amplified plank o' wood just for the sheer hell of it. He combines the influence of the Delta and Hill Country Blues of Mississippi with a contemporary alternative edge. Since his first gig in December 2010 Half Deaf Clatch has played over 50 shows, including The East Yorkshire Custom Bike Rally (once on the main stage, then as an invited special guest in the VIP enclosure), The Springboard Music festival, The Trinity Music Festival and recently played two extremely well recieved sets at The Beverley Blues Festival. 2012 has got off to a flying start for Hulls favourite slide stomper, having gotten through to the Newcastle heat of the New Brunswick Battle of the Blues it can only be onwards and upwards from here. “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, ”LIKE” ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
