ABOUT

32:20 are essentilly a raw blues band with a new wave influence.
Our ethos is that we don’t follow trends, or go on wild goose chases, or listen to consultants. We just believe in the blues. That’s what we play; we have no desire to have a hit record, or a follow up. We play the blues, or as near to it as we can get.

We like purity, so we listen to (amongst others) Keith Richards, Bukka White, Johnny Winter, Roy Buchanan, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Dr. Feelgood, Canned Heat, Muddy Waters; these are just some of our influences. Yet we try to do it our way, not that we think we’re better (God forbid). We just believe that to follow in the footsteps of the greats is to do it how you feel it.

We are a two piece, bass guitar, bass and drums who have just lost our lead guitarist/singer and are looking for a new blues brother. Someone who mirrors our commitment, enthusaisum, patience and has the ability to have a good, easy going time. Prima donnas, manipulateors or egomaniacs need not apply. The departure our our band member coincides with an opportunity to play some exciting gigs this year so are looking to recruit as soon as possible. We have our own songs but will do obscure covers that match our style. Creativity, patience, pro activity and an interest in all genres of music is a major plus. We will consider two new members but would like a dual guitarist/vocalist as this is a good size, it gives us freedom to play a song as arranged but let it breath, and respond, allow us to expand on it, go in unexpected directions. We don’t like to feel constrained, and by that mean the blues does not have to be in a box. It doesn’t have to be the same, it can go with the times, go with the flow of the river, and carry us along.
