Been playing in bands since mid '80s, although not done much in the last few years. Been writing again recently and would like to put an album together. There are three of us who play drums, bass, guitar and keyboards between us, but we need a vocalist.
It's obviously impossible to all get together at the moment, but I hope we could get demos out to whoever sings with us, sort keys and be ready for when we could record properly. On-line rehearsals are possible these days.

As far as guitar playing is concerned, Peter Buck is definitely influential. Drums-wise Pick Withers, Terry Chambers and Steven Irvine all spring to mind.
Songwriting-wise I am hugely influenced by Andy Partridge, especially his lyrics. Lloyd Cole, REM, Townshend all made me want to write as well, but really no-one has affected or influenced me more than my friend and long time collaborator Dave Falconer who will be playing guitar and keyboards with whatever we get off the ground.

Rickenbacker 330 6 and 12 string. Les Paul Custom, Japanese 62 Tele reissue, Gretsch 5422, Rickenbacker 4001 5-String bass (inherited) and my Yamaha FG410 which is a beauty I just had refretted.
I've got a set of Roland v-Drums which with Logic's sounds are amazingly good. My acoustic kit went a while ago, but we have access to a good kit and great set of mics.
Recording-wise although we do have a 24-track analogue machine and an Amek Einstein, our outboard gear isn't as good as it once was, so we'll record on Logic. Between us we have a very good collection of mics and mic amps. Quality of recording we get is high.
