In addition, a very limited 7” Picture Disc in a transparent PVC pocket will hit stores that same day, August 24th.  “In Walks Barbarella” is on the red & blue side and “Hot Bottom Feeder” on the reverse, green side.  To order a physical copy of the new single directly from CLUTCH go to

CLUTCH’s song “In Walks Barbarella” is two stories, woven into one.  An adult man talks to a boy, maybe his son, about events that occurred 20 years ago. Now add visions of Jane Fonda as Barbarella, ray guns, and tractor beams.  It’s one of Book of Bad Decisions’ signature songs and it includes a horn section that truly turns this song into weaponized funk.


This time around Jean-Paul Gaster is responsible for the Spotify playlist:  “The playlist contains funk songs.  I took some of my favorite songs, stuff that was recorded all the way back from the 50s into the 60s and 70s.  These are some songs that I find a lot of inspiration from, both in the drumming and the way that the songs are put together.”

As the September 7th release date of “Book of Bad Decisions” approaches, this weekend is the final weekend to purchase CLUTCH pre-order bundles directly at Bundle sales will close Wednesday, August 29th, and stand-alone items will then be available.
