A number of factors have led us to the decision that instead of trying to find a drummer, we want to try something with percussion and occasionally with a drum machine/sampled beats.
So, we're either looking for:
1. Someone who can play a few instruments. e.g at least 2 out of guitar, keys/piano and strings. Any other instruments a bonus. And willing to play percussion and hit things occasionally :-)
This would allow myself or other people in the band to work on the drum machine/beat production side of things.
2. A Fourtet/Boards of Canada/producer person who is highly capable and highly musical with regards to making beats, ambience etc, and able to work around our songs and vocalists inspired by the likes of (copy and paste from our myspace....):
Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, The Cure, Nick Drake, Bat for Lashes, Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire, Elbow, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Explosions In The Sky, Puscifer, Lady Smith Black Mambazo, Martin Grech, Portishead, The Black Keys, Battles, The Cranberries, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Skunk Anansie, Joan as Policewoman, The Police, Gorillaz, Mew, Anthony and the Johnsons, Genesis, delicatessen, Blonde Redhead, Mazzy Star, Nosfell, The Breeders, Bjork, Bush, R.E.M, Freddy Mercury, Petra Jean Philipson, James Taylor, Death Cab for Cutie, Muse, CocoRosie, Sunna, Cocteau Twins, Tom Waits, jj72, Blur, Pulp, Beatles, Warp Records...

Anyone interested ? We need someone who's willing to commit to us and be willing to practice regularly, as well as work on songs on their own before emailing each other ideas. We're all early/mid twenties.
