Mclusky was a band that was always under appreciated during its time. While it certainly had a fanbase, the three-piece bands career quietly fizzled out in 2005 with very little notice. This was because, at the time, many in the music industry, mainly the rock-centric press, mainly focused on legacy bands and nostalgia, such as on bands like Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones and more. During their time, they were compared to the likes of Nirvana, with both bands debuts being compared positively. But the band didn’t seem to be able to capitalize on the press attention that they were getting.
