Percussionist Wanted-Seattle WA – 1166598

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


03-26-12 – Seattle, WA>Portland, OR – We are looking for an auxiliary percussionist to play alongside a kit drummer, rounding out and augmenting the sound of the band.
We currently consist of a vocalist/guitarist, a drummer, a keyboardist/soundscape artist, a bassist and a second guitarist, and are seeking to round out our personnel.
You will be using congas, timbales, wrought-iron scrap metal and assorted items such as bottles, hooves, and knives. I’m looking to incorporate Haitian and Cuban polyrhythms into the music to emphasize and augment the beats with the drummer as needed for each song, helping to forge a unique, creative sound. I can teach you these rhythms. The percussive element of the band is a strong component, and we are looking for someone who will not just accompany the drummer, but build up a sense of dynamic and aggression.
It would help if you had an industrial/underground/avant-garde background, as well as an intimate understanding and strong awareness of bands such as Swans, Laibach, Throbbing Gristle, Prong, Killing Joke, Big Black, Savage Republic, Head of David, Godflesh, Arsenal, Unsane, Pigface, and Whitehouse.
Several compositions are completed, and I plan to teach those to newcomers, as well as other completed songs that I am working on now. I presently have the songs to present to interested parties. We are consistently writing, and I expect to build on a naturally evolving sound.
We have a practice space in a 24-hour facility, and it is required that you contribute monthly to the rent, as well as transport yourself and your equipment to and from practice.
If interested, please contact me.

ExperimentalPop Seeks New Drummer-CA – 1159066

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


03-09-12 – San Francisco, CA>Reno, NV – So, we are a singer/guitarist, bassist, and keyboardist and drummer. However, our drummer has gotten too flaky,partially because he commutes 45 minutes to practice, and its starting to impact us negatively, so we are now looking to replace him.

We play what I guess is a blend of psychedelic type influences with some punk, hip hop, new wave influences. Bands/musicians we like and perhaps are influenced by: Jesus and Mary Chain, Talking Heads, Joy Division, Radiohead, Otis Redding, Miles Davis, The Beach Boys, Elliot Smith, Pixies, etc.

Here is a link to an old demo I did. We only only play a couple of songs off it, and our new songs have been going in a faster direction, but here it is just so you have an idea of some of the basic ingredients, though like I’ve said the music has changed and gotten more refined as this is an old demo.

The ideal drummer would have a deep understanding of a hip hop backbeat, with the versatility to do whatever comes his/her way (we don’t play prog though so the beats are rarely that complicated) It’s mainly about playing in a way that makes the song sound good, whatever that may mean. Tastefulness and inventiveness are the most important things.

We’ve played shows, and even have a small tour lined up for mid-March that we may have to cancel because of our drummer situation, much to our dissatisfaction. We do however have some contacts around the bay area as well and are looking to play as many shows as possible and always be working on improving material and writing new stuff. We want to record as well once we’ve got enough good new tunes and make a real go of this music thing. We’re all in our early to mid 20′s and are very passionate and hard-working about this. We’ve got a practice space, and we practice 2 or sometimes 3 nights a week from 8:30 or so til whenever we don’t feel like it anymore.

thanks. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1

03-06-12 – Los Angeles, CA>San Diego, CA – My bassist and I (guitar) are starting a hard rock band a bit on the progressive side and are currently looking for a talented drummer. We are looking for someone with a great understanding of rhythm, as our music incorporates some odd timings. Also, a diverse drum set (something more than a standard 5 piece) with double bass is preferred, since our music is progressive. Some drummers that are along the lines of what we are looking for are: John of System of a Down, Danny of Tool, and Brann of Mastodon to name a few. If you like that type of music, then you will like what we have to offer because it’s along those styles. We only want someone who is very dedicated, someone who is NOT currently in a band, and someone that wants to take the music as far as we possibly can. Please only respond if you are between the ages of 21-30. We are very passionate about the music and are confident that once we get everything together that we can definitely go far with this band. We live in Los Angeles so we prefer someone who lives in Eagle Rock, Highland Park , Glendale , Pasadena , Burbank , Hollywood , or somewhere around the Los Angeles area. My bassist and I already have some songs done on guitar and bass and are very anxious to continue the writing process and continue to make music. So if anyone is interested, please send me a message and we can talk things over. If you h — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
