this is a repost...
The scene is boring. Britain is boring. The Kids are boring. High-Street Fashion Killed British Indie.
If you agree with those statements, get in touch! I NEED to form a band to kick out boredom and do something exciting.
What I want: ANYONE with the right attitude. Drummer, guitarist, singer, whatever. I don't believe in forming a band around a specific lineup ("we need one drummer, one bassist, etc etc"). I want to find the RIGHT people and work around it. If we can't find a bassist who's got the same ethos, fine, let's not have a bassist. If I can't find a drummer, ok, let's use a drum machine And so on.
All i know is I don't wanna do it on my own...I want to collaborate with the right person(s) whoever they may be!
Influences: Stooges, Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground, J&MC, Wavves, Pavement, Black Lips, vocals with reverb & distortion, weird analog tape delay oscilations, feedback.
I want Kasabian fans running away in terror...i want macho Oasis fans scared of my band.
WHAT I DON'T WANT: to be "indie pop", 80s retro, Libertines wannabes, polished recordings, do lots of rehearsal before first gig, worry too much about "being tight". Sound like Bloc party. I don't want "indie" types with tony & guy hairdos & skinny jeans thinking they "rock".
WHAT I WANT: badly recorded lo-fi sound, kick out the jams, write songs one day before a gig, be loud and exciting. Blood.
