Want to play bass in a Art/alt rock band for a living?

Azrock 23 Jan 2007 22:44

After about 18 months of audtioning we just need a bassist.
Sorry if this ad sounds harsh & very specific, but we know what we want.

We've come out of bands that have supported international acts, record & management deals with well know major & indie companies, Triple J airplay etc...
Looking for a smooth bassist around our age 19-23. A down to earth, level headed person who has a real drive to take music as far as possible.

We have record & management interest for this band, & they can make it viable for us to do this as full time job. They know what we're about & know we are prepared to work our ass off & make the sacrifices needed for a touring band.
We have a strong DIY ethic, & are very driven people. Basically we just want to tour & play our music with total conviction.

Influences, QOTSA, Death From Above 1979, Black Rebel Motorcycle club, Refused, At the Drive In, Sonic Youth, Pixies, Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Beatles.

We've tried out a lot of people.... & we won't settle until we find the right person.
If you've seen Tim from Damn Arms or Cripps from Horsell Common you'll know what standard of bassist we're after. Phat sound, tight playing, they rock out, good image etc...
We're looking to create a world of our own... sound, crazy live show, awesome songs, image, artwork etc...

You need decent gear, transport, prepared to tour, & can really play. We've had a lot of people say they've played for 8 years, but really 7 of those years were watching their bass gather dust.
We want someone who loves playing bass & practices everyday. Someone who has real passion for music!!!

So if this sounds like you give us an email, tell us a bit about yourself, & we'll have a jam.

Please read what we've said, Cheers Aaron</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href= >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href= >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
