Episode 14 of Alternative Discussion West brings guest Clinton Smith into the studio to share his story. Growing up in east county Clinton is kicked out Antioch high school and gravitates towards the local music scene at Café LJ's and The Dock. We talk Clinton's early bands The Clusterfucks and The Deficient which leads us to his longtime project United Defiance. Clinton shares the ups and downs, and how he keeps the momentum going while UD goes through line up changes and releases their first couple of records. Side projects such as War Of Aggression, The Need and Noless pop up to keep Clinton creative in between UD records. Coming up on almost 15 years in the east bay scene we talk about the new United Defiance record, "Safe At Home" out now on Heliarc Records and what to expect from the band in 2018.

All music in this episode can be found on "Safe At Home" by United Defiance
