Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am currently looking to join a band in Bath primarily for fun and to knock ideas about with other musically minded individuals. I am not particularly interested in joining a covers band. I have been playing a long time now and can do a passable imitation of a guitarist. I play a few other stringed things including bass, appalachian dulcimer, cavaquinho and ukulele. I also play piano but only really well enough to work out musical ideas. I am far more interested in compositision than virtuosity, which I find dull.

Influences

My taste in music is extremely eclectic. I tend to play whatever interests me at the time (within my limitations anyway).
The problem with listing influences is that tends to be reductive. At the same time I realise without such a list it can be hard to pinpoint exactly where another musician is coming from. So if it helps here are some artists that I regularly listen to for inspiration.
Brian Eno
Cardiacs
Frank Zappa
Django Reinhardt
Funkadelic / Parliament etc.
Stevie Wonder
The Breeders
PJ Harvey
Talking Heads
David Bowie
Gillian Welch
