Russell Short Obituary, Death – The news that someone who was a part of the NOTA family has passed away is tremendously painful for each and every one of us here today. According to a statement that was disseminated by Traci Hunt, the longtime NOTA artist Russell Short ‘Klutch’ passed away while he was quietly resting yesterday night. He was known by his stage name “Klutch.”
Rusty was an exceptionally talented artist, and he was also the epitome of the street-punk aesthetic during its zenith. Rusty was one of the most influential figures in the history of the genre. During NOTA tours, he was in charge of all aspects of our merchandising operation, including the printing of designs on t-shirts in the back of the van using a silk screen. In addition, he was in charge of all aspects of our merchandising operation.
While we were driving, he entertained us with tales from his wild childhood, during which he attended rodeos in both California and Oklahoma. During this period, he traveled back and forth between the two states. Brown 25 was an Oklahoma hard rock band that he fronted in the 1980s and the band’s name was taken from him. His lyrics managed to be both sarcastic and humorous at the same time, which was a really interesting combination. We discussed the movie ‘Suicidal Cowboys.’
In the late 1980s, Rusty and Traci relocated, first to Austin, and then eventually to the San Francisco Bay Area. Both of these relocations took place in the United States. The United States of America served as the location for each of these relocations. After some time had passed, Rusty came to the conclusion that he wanted to make Portland his permanent residence, and he has since made a name for himself as a notable mural artist in that city. Brother Klutch, we will always hold a warm place in our hearts for you; may you finally find peace.
