Drums.

ABOUT

Solid style bass player into primal blues, rock 'n' roll, garage punk and instrumental music.

I have recently joined up with a creative guitarist and composer of high energy, instrumental music who takes inspiration from the best and truest rock'n'roll ever recorded and performed; from Surf instrumentals of the early 1960's through to punk and beyond!

Together we are looking for a committed and reliable drummer to complete our proposed 3 piece lineup.

We wish to play wild, surf/garage rock 'n' roll instrumentals following in the tradition of the instrumental bands of the 1960s. Ours are mainly original compositions full of danger, excitement and raucousness.

We are looking for a hard hitting drummer who is willing and able to become creative with the surf beat on the type of vintage minimal drum kit used by the great drummers of the early instrumental rock bands. A drum kit of this description can be provided at rehearsals and gigs.

We require a level of commitment as we intend to seek out quality gigs and to record in vintage analogue.

Should you wish to get in contact then please note I have placed ads in the Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire classifieds section of a well known site for musicians. So if you are interested in joining my band then head on over to that particular place with the similar name and the green graphics.
