Jeff Clark, Co-Founder, Stomp and Stammer

Jeff Clark co-founded Atlanta’s free monthly magazine Stomp and Stammer in 1996. Nineteen years later, he still hasn’t found anything better to do. He is currently the sole publisher and editor, writes a good chunk of the content, distributes them all over town in his battered old Nissan Sentra and, against all odds, occasionally sells an ad or two. Somehow, he still makes time to write for , program and host a weekly show of new music on Atlanta radio station WMLB and go see more live music in a week than most people see in a year. He wears size 10 shoes, never learned to swim and, like most people, he hates Jeff Clark.
