Guitarist/Singer looking for drummer, bassist and guitarist to start epic dynamic alt rock band
Hey, I’m Dec, I’m a rhythm guitarist, I do like my guitar sound to have a bit of distortion and crunch, think weezer, nirvana and foo fighters for the kind of guitar I like to play…
I write a lot of songs and recently I tried recording some of them on Cubase with me overdubbing drums, bass and strings to try and get it sounding like a band, and I really liked the results, and it basically got me to realising that this is the kind of music I really want to be making.
I have loads of influences, my basically philosophy though is that if a song is good and moves you then genre is pretty much irrelevant. But for the purposes of describing the music that I see this band making I’d say think Smashing pumpkins, arcade fire, u2 (achtung baby onwards), my vitriol and maybe chilli peppers (californication onwards, even though I love their earlier stuff too).
It would probably easier for you just to listen to tracks I recorded though – and they are up on www.myspace/nightsatthecircusband , I’d say give the first 4 a good listen, if you’re feeling them then don’t hesitate to get in touch, whatever instrument you play. Contact details are up on the myspace.
The parts that I came up with for the other instruments are in no way set in stone,
I would love to jam them out, have a good time doing that and have everyone’s musical and creative input on them, and that’s how I would like to see us progressing. I’m open minded about this and I think the best bands are a melting pot of ideas. Also: I’d be fine with sharing vocal duties, I think my vox work better on some songs than they do on others, so if you fancy singing by all means let me know.
I’m 22, went to Uni in Leeds and now I’m living in Burley (LS4), have a car so transport not a problem. I’m easygoing, pretty much just love music, playing it writing it talking about it. Get in touch!
