The Claymores  have been dealing the Northern Rivers deep-seated Detroit rock for the past twenty years. they’ve delivered savage guitar dirges in the mode of their distinguished forebears – Radio Birdman, the Stooges, the Saints, the Sunnyboys and the lime spiders.

A staunch band of brothers, the Lees, Matt and Andy on guitar and bass, and the Hughes, Jason on guitar and vocals and David on drums,  they continued the stern discipline of driving guitars  that equals and sometimes betters that of their exemplars, and at times, according to critics, echo the frenetic firestorms of Midnight Oil.

Having supported The New Christs  and  Dennis Tek, 2011 is a big year for the band, with a new album due out soon,  and a diet of regular pub shows to keep their guitars honed.
