One of his bands, Subterfuge, released an EP in 2001.

Blanch also began playing guitar in 1993 and has devoted his time to perfecting the instrument, has divided his time between bands on the Central Coast such as 2 Far Gone, Malakyi Grind and The Mighty Reapers. He has also played with Sydney bands SuperCharger and Groove Jet. Crick completes the line-up behind the kit. Formerly of original band Once Were Tadpoles, music teacher Crick began playing drums the tender at the age of six and has been passing on his skills to students since 2001.

His greatest highlight was playing as a backing drummer for James Morrison. Clockwork deliver a high energy, guitar driven rock show which is complemented by the powerful coals of McMullen.Their repertoire includes covers of the chart hits plus the best of '70s, '80s, and '90s from artists such as Avril Lavigne, Garbage, No Doubt, Ashlee Simpson, Kelly Clarkson, Evanescence and Maroon 5.
