Mick Clarke b. 10 August 1948, London, England. Clarke first attracted attention playing guitar in the south London-based duo Killing Floor, with Bill Thorndycraft (vocals/harmonica), in 1968, soon thereafter expanding the band with Lou Martin (piano/organ), who left after about a year, Stuart MacDonald (bass) and Bazz Smith (drums). They made two well-received albums, Killing Floor, in 1969, and Out Of Uranus the following year, both reissued by Repertoire Records in 2002. Other personnel changes saw Ray Owen (vocals), Lynton Naiff (piano/organ), Mick Hawksworth (bass), and Rod De'Ath and Tony Fernandez (drums) in the band. Killing Floor played in London and elsewhere in the UK backing American bluesman Freddie King and also jammed with other visitors, including Howlin' Wolf. In mid-1972 Killing Floor folded, some of the members then working with R&B singer Cliff Bennett and his group Toe Fat. Clarke was also with Daddy Longlegs and others before forming his own band, Salt, in the mid-70s, recording the rare EP All Wired Up in 1978.
After a spell in the USA, Clarke returned to the UK to form the Mick Clarke Band at the start of the 80s. For the next two decades the band worked extensively, touring the UK and Europe, receiving critical acclaim for their live shows and albums. Critics and audiences in the USA also reacted very favourably to the band. In 2005 the band included drummer Chris Sharley (drums, ex-Sassafras), Dave Rea (bass), and Dave Lennox (keyboards). Among other musicians who have worked with Clarke over the years are keyboard player Peter Terry, bass players Mick Phillips, Len Davies, Ian Ellis, Eddie Master and Russell Prett, blues harpists Stevie Smith, Dave Newman and Mark Feltham, drummers Ron Berg, Slash, Mike Hirsh and Wilgar Campbell. An important part of the repertoire of Clarke's bands are his own compositions, which include "Murderers' Home", "Cheap", "Walking In The Dark", "The Killingest Place", "Second Hand Dream" and "New Star Over Texas".
