Album Notes
Imagine a world where no genre, age or past mattered - not in music, not in life!
CLUTCH CARGO imagine that on their first CD, " Wide Open " - a musical mystery tour through delicate Drum n' Bass and terrapin - textured Trip - Hop touched by Baroque Pop , moody mutated Jazz - creamy Philly soul and psychedelia - old and new - it's members grew up with and within .

In 2000, CLUTCH CARGO released an EP " The Chill Trip " that happened to feature visiting dignitary Liam Gallagher (OASIS) who , upon visiting CLUTCH's residential environment Bar Noir by accident , dug CARGO's scene enough to jam with them on the spur of the moment.

" Wide Open " : a stunning (dis) array of enveloping eclectic moods features the creepy Bjork - meets - Bacharach bacchanalia of ' Someone Else " . The liquid noir of "Fragile Girl ". The aptly titled " Blue Sky " lingers between a watery midnight of pedal steel mysteries and a dawn touched by dub bliss. " Eternal Kiss " finds it's pucker in childhood nursery rhymes , horn tooting funk and heavenly house sounds.

"For us, creating is getting close to God" says Manney of CLUTCH CARGO's expressionist take on their humanity, a process to often left behind in electronic mind/body musics.
"Wide Open" is about channeling energies, exploring daily emotions & communications, with people of all ages, on a soul to soul level.
Imagine giving CLUTCH CARGO an Amen for that !

Karen Coyne Out On The Town Entertainment Guide

Wide Open is full of diverse music w/ guest appearances by many well known Phill
AS the electronic age is upon us, Clutch Cargo makes full use of loops & treatments as part of their identifying sound.
Vocalist Su Teears carries you through the many moods of Clutch Cargo.Whether they are playing philly soul,ambient house or jazz-pop,Su's souful voice blends well with their many organic-electronic sounds.
George Manney,Clutch Cargo's Drummer& Producer,is well respected in the industry.His expertise with drums and loops stand out on songs like EURO TRAVELER and BLUE SKY.
Keyboardist Rocco Notte is an integral element of Clutch Cargo.Besides his next wave style of playing throughout the CD,Notte's familiar piano sound can be heard on RECOGNIZE ME and FRAGILE GIRL.
The title cut WIDE OPEN is a flowing song full of energy and rolling drumbeats.ETERNAL KISS and RECOGNIZE ME have great rhythm tracks making them easily danceable.CHILL TRIP places soulful overtones over a trip-hop rhythm while songs like FLY AWAY and RECOGNIZE ME showcase the guitar tracks.
Keeping w/in the Phila. mainframe,WIDE OPEN was recorded @ GEO SOUND STUDIO & mastered by Peter Humphreys of MASTERWORK RECORDING.Some local musicians appearing on WIDE OPEN include Marty Ahern,Dave HUmphreys and Allen James.
