Male singer wanted for new project (not sure you could call it a band although we will be gigging and recording). We're using a drum sequencer including bass parts , guitar with effects and keyboard with psychedelic noises to create an interesting sound , all the songs are uptempo (not chill-out music) and mainly repetition based . After years of playing in 'normal' bands we have decided to try something different influenced by things like LCD Soundsystem , The Fall , early Hip Hop/Electro , Big Beat/Breakbeat , Lo Fidelity Allstars , Sonic Youth , Kasabian , Primal Scream . We're not trying to get signed just trying to enjoy being in a band . We're in our late 30's early 40's with experience of gigging / writing / recording etc . Whoever joins us can either use their own lyrics or we can help out with lyrics if needed . We're open to new ideas including spoken word / poetry / rap etc. Also we don't really need someone who can sing in 'perfect pitch' with lots of technical ability , a more laid back approach might suit what we're aiming for , think of people like Mark E Smith , Lou Reed , Bobby Gillespie , Joe Strummer , Shaun Ryder , Beck , James Murphy , Huey Morgan (not technically great singers but effective at what they do) and we are also open to other styles as well . We rehearse somewhere in between Wigan , Leigh and Bolton probably once a week . We're easy going and down to earth and are hoping that the set we play live will be dynamic and keep people interested and entertained (gigs will be around Manchester and the North West) .. for a rough idea go to soundcloud and type in 2678 prov then click on the grey circle ... these aren't finished songs just rough recordings to show how we sound
