By 1994, Bailey acquired re-formed Clockhammer with brand-new members Tag Smoot and Christian Nagle signing up for up, issuing the record Houses in Movement the same calendar year (which noticed the band discovering a heavier, nearly Black Sabbath-esque audio) — although nothing at all has been noticed from Clockhammer since.
