12-20-11 – Chicago, IL>Milwaukee, WI – We’re a bunch of 9 to 5er’s that woke up one day and realized we gave up rocking out years ago but couldn’t figure out why. So, we started this band because we wanted to live out that side of our personalities and have some outlet outside of the grind. We’re not overly serious about it….by no means is it full time and we’re nothing to write Rolling Stone about. We’re a ridiculous cover band that people seem to enjoy because we play a random assortment of tunes, get drunk on stage, connect with the crowd, and just have a good ol’ time.
We practice, on average, once per week and do a gig about every 30 days, give or take. We put this band together almost 2 years ago and have some surprisingly good momentum resulting in us playing some pretty legit places….some we don’t really deserve to but, hey, that’s their mistake. So, we’re looking to keep it going but need to find the right bassist that we not only jive well with musically but fits well with the personalities of the group. We range in age from 28 to 33, are all college educated, business-minded guys that like to have a good time, from Chicago originally, etc, and do this on the side but love the shit out of it.
Our song list is all over the board. 3 out of 4 are covers, some of which we mess with and put our own twist to, and then we have some originals that are pretty humorous….usually with a funky or rock’n'roll jam feel to them. To give you an idea, I’m just going to list below anything that comes to mind from the list of songs we cover or have covered recently: — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
11-24-11 – Boston, MA>Portland, ME – This quirky, witty and acerbic comedy is a candid portrait of a 60-year old woman with an idiosyncratic sense of romance. Mrs. Whitney seeks a cure for loneliness by tracking down her ne’er-do-well ex-husband, an irresponsible mess she kicked out over 20 years ago, sending her on an odyssey of surprising and sharply-funny encounters.
09-18-11 – New York City, NY>Philadelphia, PA – I am a bass player and singer looking for a guitarist. Here’s some demos of my songs here:
(the spiked jacket pic is not of me, it’s a shot of model Agyness Deyn that Hedi Slimane took. I just liked it).
The 80′s British influence is probably the most obvious influence. Though I used to sing for years in a punk band and I did some 50′s ballad stuff a few years back. I always come back to this type of stuff, though. I love the way 80′s bands formulated hooks and used reverb for big sound. As far as songwriting goes, I would like to just sing over basslines and let the guitarist mess around with melodies while a drummer to goes all out. The Cure’s Wish album being a perfect example of this as far as I’m concerned. The delay and occasional wah effect is so good for making notes soar.
While I like coming in with some formulated ideas for a riff or hook, I’d prefer to have that develop in a rehearsal. That’s why I left the demos short with just a verse, chorus and outro. If we are playing some of those songs, I wouldn’t say it has be played the way I did on the recording. I mean, a few notes I think are integral to the melody of the song but I’d prefer someone add and change things around. Also, I’d like these songs to be much BIGGER with more attack…Garageband recordings in my room do not do justice to the ideas in my head. It should sound more wild.
I don’t care if you’re more into Radiohead or Deerhunter, or if you usually play thrash or whatever. If you’re into the stuff I recorded and think we could take it somewhere, I’m game. Also, I’m 33 and work a 9-5 job and live in Williamsburg. I’m more interested in playing bars and art parties than trying — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
