Since the mid-80’s, Static Cling has been performing both locally and throughout the northeastern United States, in venues ranging from the smallest and smokiest roadhouses to major clubs in Boston, Philadelphia and New York City. Playing a wide range of material, they draw on their own originals as well as truly unique renditions of essential classics.
Among Static Cling’s accomplishments are three full-length cassettes, two full-length CDs, two 7-inch singles, a twelve-inch EP and numerous compilation appearances. They have also recorded and performed as the back-up band for both New York City rocker, Helen Wheels, and eccentric Boston folkie, Bob Jordan. All of these recordings have been well received, with airplay in the United States, Europe and Japan. College radio in New York City has had Static Cling in heavy rotation and their first single, "The Brady Bunch", was an underground hit in Berlin. Somewhere along the way, Static Cling also took first place in the WCMF Homegrown VI competition - out of a field of 209 bands.
Static Cling's music was once described in "The Rochester Freetime" as, "…the Ramones crossed with the Grateful Dead with a heavy dose of Doors moodiness, Dylan imagery and Cramps-like unpredictability…always rockin’, always danceable." Static Cling has opened for a number of national acts, including Blue Oyster Cult, The Dictators, Screaming Trees, The Golden Palominos, The Tail Gators and The Glenn Phillips Band.
Professionalism, experience, creativity…Static Cling brings to the table a unique psychedelic rock & soul experience that leaves none wanting.
"Static Cling is a great band, real cool." - Buck Dharma, lead guitar, Blue Oyster Cult.
