We're a guitarist and bassist looking for a drummer. We've played together in a band before and have a few sketches of tunes already.
What we've come up with so far is reasonably discordant but with enough of a tune and coherence to still be interesting. Variable time signatures without too much maths, quiet bits and louder bits (sorry I'm rubbish at this).
Influences could possibly be misleading but a fair stab would be: shellac, wire, fugazi, lungfish, beefheart, minutemen, sabbath, gbv, the lines, raincoats...
If any of this rings a bell let me know! We've got some rough recordings I can send if interested, best email me (see below).
Caveat: we're serious about making music for the sake of pleasure rather than profit/NME aspiration - proper DIY!
We may be looking for a vocalist at some point too.
