ABOUT

Exciting opportunity to join a North Somerset band with a difference - BS49 area. A Bass guitarist, Lead guitarist, Rhythm guitarist and Vocalist needed to join me, the drummer, and form this start-up band to play covers of rock (not rock and roll) songs that have something about them.
So what makes this project different.
As I said earlier I am a drummer, I use an electronic kit. This is a deliberate choice as it gives me the flexibility of using different sounding drum kits but also it allows me to trigger certain rock song content and/or effects that are an integral part of the song. Examples are - the car door open and slam, engine start and car pull away at the beginning of Love Is The Drug, or the synth sound at the start of She Sells Sanctuary.
If you are a vocalist and can really deliver songs such as 20th Century Boy, A Kind Of Magic, All Day And All Of The Night, All Right Now, Beds Are Burning, Boys Are Back In Town, Ever Fallen In Love, Honky Tonk Women, Hurting Kind, I Predict A Riot, Jumping Jack Flash, Love Is The Drug, Make Me Smile, Mama Told Me Not To Come, Mony Mony, Mustang Sally, My Sharona, Rock And Roll, Route 66, She Sells Sanctuary, Summer Of 69, Teenage Kicks, Walk This Way, Wishing Well, then you are what I am looking for.
Some bands and artists will be excluded such as Beatles, Eagles, Small Faces, Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Pretenders, Hollies, Police, Snow Patrol, Morrisey, Counting Crows, Travis, U2 - just to name a few.
If you are a guitarist or bass player then the list of excluded bands and artists may not suit you but if you are OK with that then great.
Regards practicing at home all of us would use the same cover band backing track. I will supply these with your instrument or the vocals excluded.
No gigs are planned at this stage but definitely in the future when we are ready.
The band name Killin'it is registered and T shirts are available.

I am gradually adding tracks of me playing to backing tracks and, where applicable, with percussion and or effects triggered with my drum kit.

I will also add some tracks ( in a separate alphabetical list) which are not the type of songs that I want the band to play but which you may like to listen to.
