ABOUT

I am another 30 something failed musician, with many years of gigging/recording experiences (From the cheapest set up to the most elaborate), currently looking to start a new project within the Ska Punk genre. Can be contacted by mail on emptyheadsinc at hot mail dot com.

Currently jamming as:
Me (Tom) - Guitar/Vox (if necessary)
Andy - Bass
????? - Drums/Backing Vox

We are a recently forming Punk/Ska/Reggae band consisting of Guitar and Bass, (In our 30's)looking for a Drummer to finish off the line up, with a view to maybe adding brass and Keys down the line.

Influences range from 90's ska bands like the Mad Caddies, Sublime, Authority Zero and Less than Jake to the punkier elements such as Bigwig, Rise Against, Dropkick Murphy's, Bouncing Souls, etc, etc.

We also try to bring other elements into the music such as Celtic (Flogging Molly), Reggae (Slightly Stoopid, 10ft Ganja Plant, The Expendables, Passafire) and Latin (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs) Sounds, creating a very varied list of tracks to suit all our influential styles.

We practice near Ystrad Mynach, but can also relocate Cardiff if required for the right member. Pretty laid back bunch that we are, we only demand definite commitment as I believe with the right person at the helm, we will endeavour to have a great time playing anywhere that'll have us. Lol.

Well, if this sounds exactly what the doctor ordered, waste no time in mailing me (emptyheadsinc (at) Hot mail (dot) com) and we'll take it from there.

Cheers and Beers
Tom.

Influences

My main influences range from a very large pool of artists, due to individual influences. Have also uploaded a few rough recordings to show the kind of music I am currently looking to create.

Main influences range from the 90/00's bands, such as
Mad Caddies, Sublime,
Less Than Jake,
Reel Big Fish,
Authority Zero,
Random Hand,
Voodoo Glow Skulls and many more.
Other influences can range from
toots and the maytals/Desmond Dekker/Laura Aitken/Slightly Stupid/Jah Roots/Passafire/The Expendables to
NOFX/Strung Out/Good Riddance/Rise Against.
Suffice to say I am influenced by a far wide range of of the Ska/Reggae/Punk genre with 50 years of music tutilage to get to grips with.
