My name is Rob, I am 27 years old.
I have good equipment, skill and work ethic. I am also willing to do clean/growl backing vocals. I am an upfront bass player who likes to play some lead style bass, however I will cut back and play roots when the song calls for it. Guitar wise I am more of a rhythmic player who plays the occasional lead.
Genres I like: Post Rock, Hardcore Punk, Ska, Funk, Disco, Death Metal, Doom, Doom Metal, Noise Rock, and Pop punk.
Band Influences include, Gojira, Mars Volta, Strike Anywhere, Young Widows, Shellac, Mars Volta, Fugazi, NOFX, Rise Against, Quo Vadis, My Dying Bride, Slave,, Red Fang, Sister sledge, Russian Circles, Maserati etc (A wide variety!)
Samples of my playing are available.
I can play fretted and fretless bass. Available most weekday nights and weekends.
I refuse to be part of a backing band for a solo performer. I want to be in a band where I can contribute in songwriting. I will only consider bands who already have a drummer(!) in place.
I am very interested in people who are in, or want to form a sonically dynamic band, one where each instrument has it's own space. (IE: If I cant hear myself due to a loud guitarist, then there is no point in me being there. )
If your band is not close to the genre's stated above, please don't contact me. I am fed up of people sending messages to all "Bassists available" adverts regardless of what is in the advert.
I would preferably like to practice in the center or south of London, though it is not a deal breaker.
If you would like to contact me to hear some samples of my playing just shoot me an email. Please contact me through here, I do NOT have Facebook.
