The Clap
After gaining notoriety in their home town of Newcastle, NSW, for the explosive and totally entertaining live shows they do, It is now time for them to take it to the next level and start spreading THE CLAP around to the rest of the world.

A four piece band, containing Matt Close ( Bass and Vocals), Luke Hoskins (Vocals and Guitar), Mathew Hoskins (Lead Guitar) and Shane Stephens (Drums) They have been kicking around for a few years, but it has only been since late 2005 that THE CLAP has swung into full gear. After getting rid of a few hundred copies of the cd at gigs up and down the east coast and sending it everywhere else, the album has been picked up for distribution by MGM/Green. THE CLAP has also had their 15 seconds of fame from the JJJ Unearthed competition with Jay and The Doctor playing a portion of the song 'Che Guevara T-Shirt Wearer' on the Breakfast Show one morning. The Doctor also gave positive reviews for a couple of the tracks on the unearthed website (, which was nice.

Look out, you may see THE CLAP on tour sometime this year, make sure you have protection, and lock up yer beer fridges.
