Title: Hay, let's start a band!... in Teesside
Post by: Floating_ThirdEye on July 05, 2003, 02:18:14 am
Right dudes, if you are REALLY interested in making a band, write down in here what kinda music you're into, what instrument you play, what bands are your influences and what sorta music you wanna do! And then those who share the same music taste and all will be able to do a jam!  :mikeisahomo

NOTE#1: Offtopic replies will get deleted!

NOTE#2: This threads meant to get to know those people who share the same taste with you, so don't forget to have a look through other posts and see what others are like. (That's to everyone)

edit : just added the S in Teesside as someone further down pointed it out

I wouldn't mind doing a screamo type thing.

I'm a guitarist, influences depend on my mood

Also could do backing vox but haven't got anywhere near the best voice in the world, just random screams and voice doubling

Post by: magentadevine on September 08, 2003, 04:05:58 pm
are girls alowed to join in too,
Im a singer, but can also play the Sax, but not at the same time, coz that would just be too hard, I come from a very musical background, and have studio time whenever i need it, Im the child of a fading musician.

My influences range from No Doubt to Natalie Imbruglia, and i have a voice that ranges over 3 octaves.

I kinda sound like a cross between Karren Carpenter when i sing lower notes, and that girl from Evenscence when i belt it out.....

go on give me a go

ive giged all over with previous bands, and im currently looking for a band with cool people in it that dont want me to sing David fucking Gray songs again!

Drenalyn, a lovely lil stoner/prog rock type band are havin trouble with their current singer, and are looking for a replacement with a similar kind of writing style to maynard of :fashmakingarequest. so its not a screamy type thing, they want a singer that can sing well, the maynard thing is just a guideline so they arent looking for a direct :fashmakingarequest rip off. anyway anyone that fancies it should be reliable enough to attend regular practices and bascially not be a dick :). if ur interested drop me a PM n ill give u the number :mikeisahomo

Post by: Lewis on January 22, 2004, 04:29:16 pm
I know this is probably a long shot, but... I go to York St.John uni and am looking to start a band. I was in a band back in Middlesbrough but it was hard to keep it going so we kinda split. I play the guitar, hvae plenty of gigging and recording experience. Looking for a bassist/vocalist/drummer, and possibly a second guitarist.

Influences: Green Day, Dropkick Murphy's, Goldfinger, Rancid, Pinhead Gunpowder, MxPx, NOFX, Stray Cats, Pennywise, Mad Caddies, Swingin' Utters, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes...etc...you get the idea.

Not looking to form a "Post-Hardcore-Emo" type band.

Please email me if you are interested...

lo ppl, looking for a bassist to join a new prog-rocky band.  Its gonna be v. melodic and quite instrumental in parts. Live material will be a little rockier and more energetic, and studio stuff will be experimental, chill out, relaxing and gentle maybe.   Need a player capable of playing bass solo's etc so a good few years experiance is prolly required.

email me at Spud@Spuddle.org.uk  if u think u can help or pm me. :)

hey my band would like to expand our capabilities by adding a fourth member on rythm guitarist/secondary vocals. My band is called a parting cry and its recently formed so if you were to join you wouldnt have to learning heaps of stuff. The band play original music and maybe the odd cover for fun. you would have to be able to practice in rimswell in stockton, but it doesnt matter if you live in boro or something just as long as you can make practices. Also we would like someone who knows what they are doing and are musically talented. if you are interested can you email me at :

psychadelic1970sbinman@hotmail.com

cheers

Title: Re:rythm guitarist/vocalist wanted
Post by: Stitch on March 05, 2004, 07:01:23 pm
Just to back up what James has said, we are looking for someone who is musically talented and who is able to contribute actively in songwriting. A strong, wide ranging voice is preferable as that's what stands out. It would also be cool if you can sing lead vocals from time to time!

We're also looking ideally for at least 2 or 3 years experience. Some knowledge of music theory (i.e. when we ask you to play Am9 you'll know what we mean, kind of) is preferred. If you have experience of gigs etc. thats also a good thing.

Each of us have different influences. This gives some flexibility in what we can write.

Thankoo!
Arron.

am a little bit unsatisfied with my current drummer, he takes a bit too long to learn stuff and usually what he comes up with is unsuitable/boring imo.  This is for my uber melodic prog rock band. Influences:

Jeff Beck,
Dream Theater,
Rush,
Joe Satriani,
Tool,
Great White,
etc etc.

So am interested again in a drummer. Am looking for someone with (preferably) their own kit or at least cymbals,  needs to be fairly experianced and not scared by "not standard timing signatures" and also can just rock out when required. If you think you're up to scratch then please IM me or email me at Spud@Spuddle.org.uk

Well I'll add myself to the list. I am a guitar player who is very used to being told what to play and how to play it. Not that I mind if its a good group however I'm much more interested in forming an extreme/heavyweight rock band.

Playing full heavy BLS type music with the addition of some more melodic material also. I'm affraid I am and always have been a bit of a shred nut however non-invogue that maybe and aint gonna substitute for powerchording gig in, gig out, although I greatly admire many bands that have moulded their style by it, it just aint me.

I'm interested in a 4 perhaps 5 peice set up. Oh yeah and finding a vocalist who can sing but also bellow like a beast! :fashr0x0rs

Guitarist in 1st year of degree at teesside uni, plays a 1957 reissue strat throught a 80 watt marshall combo with a vox disstortion booster.
Style is influeneced prob most by graham coxon and john fruciante, but going throught a heavy-ish blues style at the mo coz i dig the white stripes. been playing 5 years so know the basics and are of a decent standard.

fav bands:
blur
white stripes
foo fighters
graham coxon
nirvana
muse
oasis
chilli peppers
sex pistols

there are shite loads more bands i admire but cant be arsed 2 go through them all.
very much like the heavy indie scene as u prob guessed.

open minded though into most things !

Totally wide range in music taste, bands i'm listening to the most atm are...

Libertines
Coopers
Vines
Strokes
razorlight
the bandits
the stills
etc

Quite like playing dirty energetic guitar parts, but also like to experiment.

Ideally a 5 piece band(2 guitarists, bass, drums, vox), but also not too fussed aslong as it works!

I've been a guitarist about 5 years, and also before that I played for a couple of years before taking a year away from it.

Any musicians welcome to enquire.

Just seen some local bands and thought I want to do this live thing again.  Been playing guitar on and off for many years now and have been recording stuff for just over 10 years so have loads of songs of my own recorded on 4 track.

More into songwriting than technical ability with the guitar - I can string chords together but no good with solos and fiddly stuff.  Have had writers block mostly for a few years but influences are mostly Teenage Fanclub, Boo Radleys, Sebadoh and then Buzzcocks and the Undertones for my faster numbers!

Only played live 3 times quite a while ago now but it was fun so if anyone has room for a competent but no frills rhythm guitarist / backing vocalist  ;D

any of the indie peeps who are looking for an ace guitarist, try contacting wakey82 - he's far too modest.

so know the basics and are of a decent standard.

that there is an understatement. Even if you're not so keen on his influences, he's really developed his own style and would deffo be worth a jam with.

still lookin for band i don't really mind if im playing guitar or just singing or both i just need to get back into it.

influences:-  Apc, joj, kidneythieves, muse, ozzy, HIM, sonic youth, sikth, skindred, soulfly, probot, orgy, deadsy, korn, knot, Dope, static X, paradise lost, edguy, green jello, sneaker pimps, rage, biskit, dasiy chainsaw, queen adreena, snot, sexart, pantera, NIN, nothingface, reel big fish and simlier bands, kill thrill cult, MSI, Incubus...and loads of other obscure bands from around the world.

well you get the idea im pretty much open to anything i just love playing and performing, so give us a shout if your intrested.

oh equipment wise im using a warlock or my ibanez 7 string thru a big ass amp (i don't know the make it's unmarked but it sounds damn good) and using zoom multi effects so im getting a pretty sweet range of sounds.

vocal wise it's been while but it's all still there.

Aight, I need to get back into a band STAT! I'm actually in a band at the minute, but I need to play stuff that I'm actually into. So here goes...

I've been playing guitar for about 4 years now, not too good, but I can kick some ass at rhythm/power chords, I also play bass but I'd prefer not to do that, cos I don't like it, but if you need a bassist I might consider it.
I also sing a little, not too well, but I'm working on my kinda hardcore voice at the mo, Sorta Atreyu/Killswitch style.

Influences are: Atreyu, Deftones, Himsa, GG Allin, Green Day, Barney Rubble & The Cunt Stubble, Supersuckers, Gluecifer and The Vandals etc

No transport, but I can get around. So if anyone fancies having a jam, drop me a line, whether people want me to join a band, or form one, s'all good baby.

Thought I'd post again. I'm a vocalist looking to join a band. I'm mainly interested in making music and am prepared to give any genre a go! My personal influences however would have to include Three Doors Down, Faith No More, Placebo, Radiohead etc, basically melody driven rock.

As for my voice, melodically think Mike Patton crossed with Elvis(although my top end could use a little work since I've been out of practice for a while!), in terms of shouting/screaming I've yet to categorise it as I'm still developing that side of my voice (although thankfully I don't sound anything like Chad Kroeger :klinebeforehegotcaughtinthezipper).

had a couple offers last time but nowt happened with them so i'll ask again.

Melody driven proggyish guitar rock band looking for a new drummer, think gritty pink floyd and touches of tool, and rush.  Need someone who can bash those skins with a nice chunky sound and has no problem with 'not ur norm. time signatures' i.e. needs to be loud and clear when we are belting out some riffs in 9/8 or 7/4 and the like.  

So not for the faint hearted but we will ease you in nice and gently :)

Will be warming up and writing material into beginning of summer with intentions of gigging and recording come september.

Give us a PM or email at Spud@Spuddle.org.uk , either way will end up in my inbox so gogogo.

I need a drummer.

Male or female is all good, age doesn't matter either. We have a full line-up, just not a drummer. We're gonna be playing some beautiful punk rock with influences from the likes of: Zeke, Gluecifer, Supersuckers, Dillinger 4 etc, with nice melodic lyrics which are mainly influenced by The Ataris.

I have several songs ready which just need drums to them.

I really am desperate for a drummer, I'm looking to be gigging as soon as possible, and hopefully recording asap too.

At moment were a 3 piece with a singer lined up, but we want a 5th person the play something else. Were not certain what yet except it wont be guitar. We want something like a keyboard or violin or brass, something bassically that will make the band sound a bit different.  Anyone interested message me on here.

Oh, our music is similar to AFI if your wondering.

Ok dudes, I need a guitarist and a bassist who would be able to get to Studio 64 to do some practises. Preferably a lead guitarist.

The band is called Buckwheat, and we're hoping to throw down some funky beats in the style of Lagwagon, Descendents, and maybe some Ataris. And Zeke if we feel frisky enough to do some heavy/fast shit, although I'm not that great of a drummer. :P

If you'd be interested, let me know. A drummer would be nice also, as then I can take over the bass position, but I'm not likely to find a drummer.

So if you're up for punking up Teesside a little, get in touch!

Hey guys, serious post this time for The Merry Koalas, after some serious teething troubles in which I had a runaway drummer, truant bassist, dissinterested rhythm guitarist and no singer we seem to be on the right track.

Basically, we're looking for a drummer (preferably in the redcar/east cleveland area) and a singer.
Established skill is not essential, even if you only just started drumming that's great, we've even got a drumkit you can use till you get your own (owing to the unreliability of my mates kid sister, long story.)
As for a singer, we don't need no gareth gates, pussy voiced cock munching pretentious git, just someone who doesn't sound like a choking weasel and enjoys singing a wide range of songs.

Our influences are as follows

Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Libertines, Strokes, Nirvana, Beatles, Echo and the bunnymen :-\ and Guns and roses.

It's a varied mix and with some luck and positive input we'll come up with some great sounds.

If interested IM me, I move back to the North again soon so will be spending a lot more time in Middlesbrough and can hopefully get this band moving.

Right, back to the Merry Koalas musician needs

Like I say we need a singer, and a drummer, we'll even provide a drumkit for drummers starting out or coming out of retirement.

We may need a Bassist depending on the outcome of the next band meeting as our current one, while fast, has no idea how to play bass in a band and gets bored and starts doing stupid things (just ask eris).

Any questions ask me, or Mr Echo and the fucking Bummymen loving prick boy (I fucking love you man, you can be my wingman anytime  8)).

Since there's been a lot of BULLSHIT since my last post, I'll post again, as I need some musicians rather hastily.

Buckwheat need a vocalist and/or lead guitarist, and from the looks of things, another bassist too. Basically, a whole fucking band. If there are any drummers out there, who fancy it, please pipe up, cos I'd much rather play bass than drums. :o

So if you like stuff like Lagwagon, Zeke, Descendents, Ataris, Audio Karate, basically punk music with a light heart, but not pop-punk, then you're Buckwheat material.

We're looking to get things organised within the next month or two, to start practising, and it's gonna be mint.

Send me an email: zeke@supersuckers.freeserve.co.uk or buckwheatoneline@hotmail.com or IM me. PLEEEASE. :emo

St. Elmo's Fire are looking for a new bass player.  If you are interested and would like to hear or find out more, go to our website.  It's www.stelmosfire.tk and our official email is stelmosfire2004@hotmail.com.

We're primarily an indie band that write our own stuff and we have a set of about 15 gigs coming up - from September 13th, our bass player is jumping ship to enjoy the delights of university.  During this time we'd like to involve a brand  new bassist in the gigs from that point on, some of which require own gear and preferably transport, so if you haven't got either or any then you'll need to contact us and we can discuss the difficulties and hopefully sort them out.

Meantime, if you're expecting some really heavy emo punk metal stuff then we won't be your thing.  Influences include Supergrass, Blur, Embrace, The Libertines, The Vines, The Manic Street Preachers and just about anything else that goes with them.

All offers are welcome.  It would of course help if you're in the Stockton/Middlesbrough/Redcar area as this is where the band practise and gig, though trips to Leeds and hopefully Newcastle are also in the pipeline.  

Cheers and let us know.         :bye

This is probably a bit of a longshot but basically if anybody fancies making some music to dance to, then message me.

I want to do some proper toned down stuff with minimal equiptment - i'll drum just bass drum, snare drum and one cymbal.

Ideally you'll play guitar but you won't enjoy the distortion pedal. Or maybe you'll play saxophone. Or synths.

Basically if you are interested in making some music that you can have a bit of a wiggle to and are interested in doing something a bit different to the usual distorted guitar malarky... "interesting" instruments very much appreciated.

If I was listing influences I might say stuff like The Faint, Q and Not U, The Rapture, Trans AM, Devo, Cornelius... but I'd rather just see what happens and be influenced by everything we all listen to.

Looking to work with a band who are interested in having actualy proper singing (shock horror), rather than screaming and shouting. Generally my songwriting's somewhere between Tori Amos and Evanescence...voice kinda the same (but lower, obviously. Anyway, let me know by a personal message or summat.

right i was listening to the yeah yeah yeahs today and thought that would be so cool to make music with just a guitar and drums and maybe a bass (on some tracks! lol) a really simplyfied sort of sound a little like the white stripes obviously not trying to sound like a particular band just would be cool to do something like that.

so i play drums so im looking for a guitarist. needs to be able to write own stuff as prob the only musical member of the band, need to be up for a laugh and cool.

and importantly i need a singer.  well i need a front man who will perform and be able to write their own lyrics and melodys and stuff. dont mind what sex as long as an amazing performer and sexy and appealing to an audience.

and possibly a bass player. i would like a bass player been a drummer and all but i think for the sort of simple rock we might be able to do without. (if it doesnt drive me crazy with no bottom end in any songs!)

cool so if any guitarists, bassits or singers fancy a laugh and doing a style a bit different contact me through this or my msn which is a1000388@tees.ac.uk.

cool

later luv's

I wouldnt mind playing guitar in another band, since I have no job and sit about doing fuck all I guess I have the time too.  I have another band which is my priority like, but Im always bored so need something else to do.  I play guitar, like I mentioned, and can attempt to sing but my vocals arent anything really good.  I`d prefer it to be a punk band, like NOFX style.  Also I`d need it to be close to redcar really since I have no transport for my amp. I know its a longshot, but if anyone needs a punk guitarist and has a cab/amp I can use at practices, or is local. Then let me know  :P

Hello I'm lead guitarist in a metal band. We have a drummer, a bassist and two guitarists. Our rhythm player is doing vocals at the moment but we would prefer someone with more singing experience and a powerful voice. We're interested in having a male vocalist because all the lyrics we have are generally from a male perspective and our vision for the band involves a male front man. All our influences have male singers so its nothing personal ladies.

We currently have a small covers set that consists of:
Run to the Hills-Iron Maiden
Dirty Magic-The Offspring
For Whom the Bell Tolls-Metallica
Sweet Child O'Mine-Guns n' Roses
Evil Woman-Black Sabbath

We're basically looking for someone who has a unique voice and can handle this set. A heavy metal screamer or a growler would be nice.
We have a few original songs that we're working on too. A

It would be nice if we could get someone with their own equipment as our current vocal setup isn't too great.

If you're interested contact me by email or add me to msn

Decent technique is one thing but then a feel for music and a musical brain to do what fits are equally as important. Things like that aren't things you can do a grade in.

Would this man happen to idolise chad smith and look like gareth from the office also.  ;)

If so it'll only be the zillionth band that he's drumming for at the moment.

It would be the same one, and the fact he knows nearly every muse drum part off to a tee seems pretty fitting for what this guy is looking for.

this is not really a big advertisement, just an idea i had, well, it's probs not gonna come up to much anyway, but hey, it's worth a shot.
i've been messing around with a couple of things on guitar recently, sort of post-rock mixed in with emo and indie and other elements... like jeniferever, appleased cast, mogwai, maybe a bit of aereogramme etc, anyway if anyone fancies a bit of a mess around and whatnot, email or add me: dontpanic32@hotmail.com.
Title: Keyboard Player Wanted
Post by: That Knightsie Guy.. on October 12, 2004, 09:17:37 pm
Hi we 'Wasted Youth' have been toying with the idea of getting a proper keyboard player in as a lot of our new stuff involves keyboards! But it proves rather difficult live!! Anyway this is by no means a certain thing but we would like to arrange a good ole jam and see what happens. So if anyone has the skills and fancies giving it a bash let us know! The more random the better lol :mikeisahomo

No doubt another member of the band will be the next to post asking me what the fuck im talking about.. as i said its only a idea at the moment!

I been playing guitar for a few years, but lost interest. I never really cared for theory just for having fun trying to create a heavy sound.

I could do with some inspiration to pick up my downtuned 7 string once more, and boy am I angry at the moment.....

FAO PROPER MINT SINGER.

Last Wednesday, Jamie, Bruce and myself, all previously of rock band "The New Lev Yashin" were sat in 'Naughty But Nice' in Whitby having a coffee and Bruce found some new riffs in the bottom of his mocha.

So, we've decided to start a new band.

We've poached Cal (guitarist from An American Obsession too)... but we are in need of an outrageously good singer to complete the line up.

We want to build on the luck we had in our old band.

In our last band we were lucky enough to play with the likes of Biffy Clyro, The Futureheads, Sikth, Pink Grease, RX Bandits, Golden Virgins, Aconite Thrill, This Girl and many many more. We were lucky enough to release an EP on an ace little independent label - www.toddlerrecords.com. We were lucky enough to have the track on the cover-cd of a national magazine (Big Cheese). We were lucky enough to gain airplay all over the UK as well as in Spain (Cielo Liquido). We were lucky enough to have some nice things said about us:

"a depth of talent and a desire to innovate and excite."
Big Cheese

"The New Lev Yashin mix it up brilliantly, they sound like Braid but with impeccable pop melodies and hooks that leave me astonished"
Water Into Beer

"A band that look set to forge a niche with their own sound... definitely in the 'ones to watch' category."
Punktastic.com

"Blistering tracks that are neither ground breaking nor done by every other band in Britain, but just stuck pleasantly somewhere in between..."
Gamefoe.co.uk

"dynamic and driven, they just get better and better"
Evening Gazette

"very well written songs, and a distinctive sound"
Revolution

"Definitely a band to be checked out live. Good stuff."
Suspect Device

"tightly wrapped rock explosions"
IcTeesside

"short sharp shocks of manic energy that show just what this lot are capable of."
BBC Tees

But with this new band we want to do more. But to do that, we need a mint singer. Are you a mint singer?

It doesn't matter too much about influences as collectively we have a very varied selection of influences...everything from Devo to Dillinger Escape Plan, Idlewild to Cave In, Hundred Reasons to The Futureheads, Talking Heads to The Locust etc etc.

We don't want a screamer, we want a singer. We're all aged 17 to 20 but if you are up to the task, then age is irrelevant.

Please, no time wasters.

We are looking for somebody at least as good as the singer in TNLY (can be heard on http://www.myspace.com/thenewlevyashin) plus the added bonus of commitment and motivation.

So yeah, if you think you could be what we're looking for, get in touch.

henry@thenewlevyashin.co.uk

Cheers.

Post by: Danachronism on November 21, 2004, 04:56:34 pm
Alright everyone, calm down.

WANTED - 17-21 YR OLD PEOPLE TO FORM WORLD-CHANGING INDIE POP/ROCK BAND

The thing is, you see, is that since the break-up of my little project St Elmo's Fire in September (and if anyone did come to see us, you know what we're on about)  I've been bursting to get something going again.  It seems every year, despite not always intending to, I form a new, better band, with more gigs and better songs.

Anyway, to get hastily to the point, I would like to form a kind of super-band - 'super' in the sense that it would  bring together elements of bands that have recently broken up.  I'm talking about bittered-up kids who feel like has-beens after the one project they poured their heart and soul into, endlessly booking gigs, sorting transport, pushing themselves further than before, backfired in a quiet, shitty manner.  Yeah, and you were the only one who bloody well wanted to make it big...

You shouldn't feel like this!  Come form a band with me.  The name's Daniel, I'm newly 19 and taking a gap year between college and Uni, so I have more time on my hands than I did with the Fire this year.  I'm a general musical type fellow, and in SEF I played piano (my general specification) sang and played some occasional guitar.  I also write songs - not an abundance though, and thus songwriting and creativity is more than welcome.  I don't intend to sing in this new venture, not really outgoing enough or vocally talented, but I'd do a bit of backing...

Influence wise, it's best to look at what influences my songwriting.  So I'd have to say we're looking at Blur, Supergrass, Embrace, The Manic Street Preachers, Ash, Radiohead, Ocean Colour Scene, The Libertines - anything with a good tune, I suppose.

Now, the problem is I live in Ingleby Barwick, which is a nightmare to get to and from.  Transport issues was what broke my last band up, but legging it down the street with a digital piano, SG and piano while being pelted by townies and suchlike were actually good times.  And I'm sure we can work around these things...

Giz a shout on this thread or on MSN - it's mobhunt@hotmail.com.  I'm sure I've forgotten to mention something and this post is far too long but I can't be arsed going back and fiddling about.  

Cheers for reading - if you got this far.

Daniel

Kinda looking for an original style, & generally happy with any form of music to play if its from the heart. Happy to jam for the sake of it too, not too arsed with making it really, but really wanna get gigging if its good :)

Hello,

I'm looking for a drummer who can beat the skins for me at a Cramps tribute gig I am doing in January at Lifesize in stockton.

I already have a guitarist and bassist and just need some beats to fill my monster with life. Applicants must be willing to adhere to a strict practice schedule and be able to actually play the drums, oh and must like the Cramps obviously.

Male or female applicants welcome, Send me a personal message or reply in this thread. I am desperate.

Post by: God_made_me_do_it on December 06, 2004, 01:16:01 am
Ok I did one earlier (and fash replied.. then started this one, heyy!) But anyways this threads big and successful so I'll post in here;

 Guitarist and singer/songwriter is my main things, I also do bass to a pretty high standard, and some keyboards and drums, although I'm shite at those outside of a studio. and I'm absolutely fucking gagging to start a decent band!! I've got a big fat ton of material written too. If my soundcard hadn't just knocked out my CD drives for NO GOOD FUCKING REASON, I'd get some mp3s posted, but unfortunately that's not happening until someone helps me sort it out  >:( So sorry.
 Anyways, Influences;

Tool
APC
NIN
Soundgarden
Deftones
Pearl Jam
Nirvana
Radiohead
REM
PJ Harvey
Mudhoney
Pantera
Aphex Twin
Squarepusher
Lots of random dance and acid jazz noones ever heard of, including myself, cos John Peel played it. And lots of dodgy German industrial who's names I can't pronounce.

 Ah well once again I can't be arsed name-checking thousands of bands, I'm pretty easy on what kind of band I'm in, so long as I have an influence in the songwriting and production to a fair extent.

 And one last thing - NO SKA - NO EMO - NO WHINY PUSSY NU METAL. NO DIRIVATIVES OF ANY OF THESE TERMINALLY OVERPLAYED AND UNORIGINAL GENRES.  Don't worry if you find yourself disagreeing with this opinion, it just means you're wrong.

 On the other hand I shall be writing and producing an emo song in 24 hours at some point just to prove how easy it is to do, and how the lyrics are rubbish and anyone can make them up in 2 secs. wanna help??

Please do not move this thread to the fucking "hey lets start a fucking band" thread because no cunt in the universe will read it. SO please let it be.

The fifteen minutes society are in desperate need of a new drummer as our old, new drummer Ben has decided to leave us. We tried to make him stay but he said " no Pop you are a gay and I hate the way you smell" then he touched me hard in my special place (my jar of peanut butter) and stormed out. Owen started to cry and suck his thumb and furry said "Grrrrrrrr, we might be gay but we arent crunchy."...ermmmm Ben got a job in manchester...He will be missed...

WE NEED A DRUMMER!!!!

someone who likes the cramps, iggy and the stooges and the birthday party if possible, if not we just want some rock 'n' roll motherfucker who shits hits for breakfast. Even if you've only been playing since last monday and have only learnt how to hit the bass drum with your face while smoking a peace pipe and reading oscar wilde, if your into rock and or roll we WANT YOU!!!!

Hey there,

Drummer + Bassist needed for Industial Metal style band!

Kinda Like, NIN, static X, Cell Dweller type stuff.

The idea for this band is to try and doing something a little different in the area [spoiler](not sure if it has been done before, but i aint came across it)[/spoiler]. Duel vocals, with added samples and wierd effects is also a big part in what sound we are after!

so if anyone is interested IM me or contact me via email at this address:

This isn't to form a band I just want someone to jam with and maybe record some stuff as a bit of a project.  I'm looking for a reasonably high skilled guitar player preferably with good theory some kind of classical training would be awesome but not essential.  I'll also try it with someone not so skilled or just starting out because it should be fun either way and we can do a bit of learning in the process.  Looking to play everything from dirty 80's Hair Metal, 90's dirty rock and grunge through to neo classical (think cacophony/playing stuff like Beethovens 5th in the style of rock/metal \m/).  Infact if you can think of it and it's not shit then it's a possibility.  MESSAGES PLEASE!

It's just no fun playing in your own all the time D:

Maybe I'm open to offers from say three people with a basic band setup as long as it isn't going to be anything too serious and purely a case of having a mess around and rock out in someones garriage or something.  I'd like to keep it fun and preferably with people who I can get along with well.  If you like beer and metal that'll do nicely.

hello,

i'm a drummer, who wants to get a second band. my main band been "whalter" [check them out links below] anyway. im up for a no hassle no pressure second band that i can play with now and again. currently, im working away from the area 3 1/2 days a week mon til thurs afternoon.

im after a guitarist or two,  a bass player, a singer and if any drummers are interested thats cool too cos i will just do vocals.

my fave band in the world is AFI and i love that sort of style. however, i may want to experiment with other styles. the main point of this band would be to have a good laugh, play some gigs maybe record some cds.

well who's up for it? im well experienced playing with whalter for 5 years, and playing drums for 10.

i am also getting into vocals alot as well. so anyone who wants to come play drums is welcome too.

ace.

my msn is a1000388@tees.ac.uk

Right I've posted before, but it was only really about jams and stuff. But finally, started to get off our arses and started writing songs together/making preparations for a band.
I used to sing/play guitar for, and Laws used to also play guitar for Payola (www.purevolume.com/payola) and we dead enjoyed it. We played in that band for over 2 years so we know our stuff... things just came to an end. We've got a potential singer lined up, although we'll have to see about that, and we're looking for quite experienced bassists/drummers. Influences are wide, we're just seeing where were going. We like bands such as The Appleseed Cast, Morrissey, Sonic Youth, Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, The Mars Volta, Ian Brown, Godspeed You..., The Stooges and therefore I guess we'll just see where it goes. But it'll be guarenteed fun and that. Anyone up for it, email me at dontpanic32@hotmail.com.
I thankyou...

Title: VOCALIST NEEDED!
Post by: Amanti on February 17, 2005, 10:08:10 pm
Dedicated Vocalist needed to join former alt metal band. We have 6 slamming tracks, only two with some vocals from our heavy screaming bassit, but need a pure vocalist unleashed onto the rest of these bad boys and more!

Style of music is hard metal with some monster riffs and nice clean passages weaved in em. Just waiting, for a voice to send them to a new level!

Style of vocals we are after are hard hitting but at the same time whipping out some lush vocal melodys!! Chino Moreno/Maynard James keenan/Omar Rodriguez/ Josh Hommes esque! etc!

Anyone interested please reply or email me @ john@tecknet.net

Check ya later.............

Another Way:

Boro based Industrial metal band mainly influenced by rammstein need a drummer. Must be talented, nifty with a double kick would help. Must have own gear!!! If you have samples of your playing that'd be great.

Also needed: Synth/Programming/Keyboardist. Must have some talent and own gear.

Anyone interested must be at least able to travel to a practice facility (we mainly use studio 64) if you have your own space thats perfect.

IM me if your interested. Twisted sense of humour and ability to ignore insults a bonus.

Me and tubby are creating a new band and we need a bassist and a drummer....

BUT they must love star wars, as this bands songs will be purely about star wars.

They must also be willing to dress as Jedi knights or other star wars stuff.

The music will be most likely simple stuff, punk rock mainly, but with (as tubby hatton puts it) a power ballad or two.  We mainly want to do catchy songs....about STAR WARS!


I admit this is a stupid idea for a band, but it will be funny, so if your interested let me know!

DRUMMER WANTED!!

You would be joining me and a lovely lady called Nicole as part of The Velterelles. We both play guitar and bass, and sing and shout.  We want to get into the studio rehearsing ASAP for some gigs in June- August
Our priority is to have fun with our songwriting and gigs, second to pissing people off for being arrogant twats.

The rest of the band are already there, and most of the songs are already written.  Influences: Loads. Let's not pigeonhole. We want stripped down drumming, think cramps, elastica, maybe a bit of rockabilly and a bit of babes in toyland.  Drummers who like to bash and get sweaty and have fun preffered over the techie type serious type.

Drummers who can also play bass and guitar welcomed, we like to swap instruments.  Our previous drummer is way too busy to play the gigs we want to do over the summer and infact was hard to get hold of for a practice, haha.


Neither me or nicole have the time to piss about with this, we'd organise a practice once or twice a week with you and expect work to be done, maybe a with a little bit of booze and fags, but still work.  No timewasters please. It will be hectic.

18 - 100, no image required, we will groom you if needs be. You will need to be comfortable being at the front of stage with a girl either side, and we might draw sideburns on you and make you wear a tie.

Oh and, Own transport preffered :)  Email Danniboo@gmail.com if you reckon you'd be up for it.

Vocalist, Guitarist (maybe 2) And drummer needed to join Bassist (possible backing vox) in agressive 3-chord punk band. May also venture into some ska kinda tracks  :-\ Please note, i cant songwrite to save my life. However i would prefer the songs to reflect the vocalist rather than just being songs pulled from anywhere.

Influences include, U.K. Subs, U.s. Bombs, Die Hunns, G.B.H., The Circle Jerks, The Exploding Fuckdolls, The Roughnecks and more.

Any takers, either IM me, post here or e-mail punkloserkidmazza@hotmail.com

Our priority is to have fun with our songwriting and gigs, second to pissing people off for being arrogant twats.

The rest of the band are already there, and most of the songs are already written.  Influences: Loads. Let's not pigeonhole. We want stripped down drumming, think cramps, elastica, maybe a bit of rockabilly and a bit of babes in toyland.  Drummers who like to bash and get sweaty and have fun preffered over the techie type serious type.

Drummers who can also play bass and guitar welcomed, we like to swap instruments.  Our previous drummer is way too busy to play the gigs we want to do over the summer and infact was hard to get hold of for a practice, haha.


Neither me or nicole have the time to piss about with this, we'd organise a practice once or twice a week with you and expect work to be done, maybe a with a little bit of booze and fags, but still work.  No timewasters please. It will be hectic.

18 - 100, no image required, we will groom you if needs be. You will need to be comfortable being at the front of stage with a girl either side, and we might draw sideburns on you and make you wear a tie.

Oh and, Own transport preffered :)  Email Danniboo@gmail.com if you reckon you'd be up for it.

I play EVERYTHING. And I'm an Oxfam Glamour Model, so I'm apparently an arrogant cunt too.If you need me, gimme a shout. I'd be up for it. :mikeisahomo

Howdy. I'm lookin to start up another band as a fart about kinda thing.

Looking for a country/punk/rock n' roll kinda edge.
Dibs on the vocals! Anyone fancy it?

I'm looking for some "feel-good" easy listening, rock n' roll type of stuff, but with a country and punk edge. Want some inspiration? Download this video

http://www.supersuckers.com/media/Quicktimes/html/rrr_320.htm

The song is Supersuckers - Rock & Roll Records.
If you wanna get more Supersuckers, download Rock Your Ass, Sleepy Vampire, Born With A Tail and Bubblegum & Beer.

This could be a class band, so if you're up for some cool solos and hopefully some nice drum beats etc, send me an IM.

Mint!

Think I only need a drummer for this now.

More influences btw:

Zeke
Murder City Devils
Electric Frankenstein
Turbonegro
Reverend Horton Heat
GG Allin
Shania Twain :)

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( it seems my guitarist has given up on the bamd idea (though we are definately better than any of the shite that comes out of this country, even the whole world at the second) so it seems a funky-ass mothafuckin bassist & drummer are on the loose (not sure about the drummer though, since he was pretty confident of being in a band with Andy (the guitarist). If any funk band needs a bassist though, I may be obliged to be in. (Ratm/RHCP)

Listen, I am very sorry I've acted like a dick, moderators and anyone else who might have been offended at my comments. I'm just looking for a British punk singer (British as in the genre, not as in the nationality. If you're non British then fine, I'm not exactly patriotic myself). That will be my only subject in future posts, I didn't set out to make enemies. So any punk singer/songwriters out there?

Edit: Translated into English, English as in the language.

not necessarily. taste is not always in correlation with age.
there are other examples.

 i want someone 16-18 to basically keep the band the same age group, but dont have a legitimate reason for that  :-\, ah well whatever,
still on the lookout, (sorry to repeat myself- this will be my last request for good while), need a punk voice with a difference to join a new band , one guitar, one bass, and a drummer- keepin it nice and simple Ramones style.

Guitarist and vocalist needed to complete the lineup for a 3-chord street punk band. Guitarist needs to be pretty fast but not an amazing soloist. Vocalist needs to be fast and raw. No pussies.

Lower Class Brats
Action
Leftover Crack
The Skeptix etc

Heavy as f**k band need a singer in York!

Ok folks I know there is a post for bands in York but after months of searching, I have come to the inexorable conclusion that there are NO VOCALISTS IN YORK!  If you are dedicated (about 25-26 years old) and you are available to travel down to york on a Sunday then let me know.  We really are looking for a screamo typr person that can also sing a bit to.  Influnces include Neurosis, Isis, Tool, Emperor, Cannibal corpse, Opeth etc.  We have 2 years worth of material and the band is really quite tight (oh yeah - and fucking heavy).  Drop me a line or add me to your msn thing if you are interested, or know of anyone that could fit the bill.

I AM LOOKING FOR A SINGER!!!


I've been recording music on my PC for a while now and can manage full instrumentation (guitars, keys, bass, pre-programmed drum beats and other assorted sounds) but cant for the life of me sing anywhere close to in tune.


So if you might fancy it send me a PM or somet! It's kind of poppy, bouncy, sunny punkrockish but it has its darker moments. Think kind of like "Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer" http://www.purevolume.com/zoloftherockrolldestroyer (http://www.purevolume.com/zoloftherockrolldestroyer)


early mp3s = http://www.purevolume.com/ishotchesneyhawkes (http://www.purevolume.com/ishotchesneyhawkes)
middle mp3s = http://www.soundclick.com/bands/8/ishotchesneyhawkesmusic.htm (http://www.soundclick.com/bands/8/ishotchesneyhawkesmusic.htm)
latest mp3s = still on my computer


A short list of bands I like/influences to get you thinking a bit more on the same wavelength (although none of them really sound like what I'm going for heh):

The Appleseed Cast, Beezewax, Brandtson, Dugong, Last Days Of April, Mineral, Pedro The Lion, Q And Not U, Sean Na-Na, Sounds Like Violence, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Postal Service, Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer.

Someone get it launched!  :)

Me (guitarist brazen fond) and zed (bassist of brazen fond) are starting a side project up. We are wanting a mixed up funky up beat sound, cross basement jaxx with the roots after listening to funky tunes like 'Deep Inside' and 'Summer Romance(anti gravity love song)' by Incubus.
We already have a female singer signed up but are looking for a second another vocalist

This is more like a shopping list.

Wanted:
Singer/FrontmanSinger/Frontman - must be able to 'sing' not scream or bluff it

Drummer - someone who can do cool hip hop break beats

Keyboard Player - someone to give an extra dimension to the sound

Turn Table Wizzard/Sampler (don't no the real name of it) - just for the craic


This is all just to jam with for now but if it works out good it could turn into gigs.

UGLY AND ANGRY CRUST PUNK MUSICIANS REQUIRED.

I have decided to begin my active search for another band. When punk rock became safe in the early 80s, a bunch of smelly anarchists who cared about whether or not there was milk in their tea (not that I do) made it great again. I want to recreate a band like this.

Nods towards newer crust is also very welcome.

I essentially need anything except a guitarist.

The spirit of early Discharge, Conflict, Subhumans and Amebix mixed with the modern melodrama of Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, His Hero Is Gone and Unkind. Melodic, uneasy, and heavy as fuck punk. Pop sensibilities left at the door, along with any notions of garage rock.

The real criteria is:
- Don't be a racist.
- Don't expect breakdowns.
- If you're reading this and thinking "YEAH I LIKE POLITICAL PUNK! BANDS LIKE GREENDAY ARE EXCELLENT, NOFX TOO!" then please reconsider approaching me.
- Don't expect to sound ANYTHING like the Misfits.

I live in Marske.

Alright dude.

Maz said he'd have to try his bass out agan or something so I'll definitely keep you in mind. Easiest way to work things is probably to have a jam and see what works out best I guess, once I find a drummer I'll let you both know. I'm impressed that you're into His Hero is Gone and Tragedy, I had no idea haha. Have you heard the early Neurosis stuff as well??

Looks can be deceiving. Can't beat a good bit of oldskool grind. Prefer the newer stuff like, The Plot Sickens etc.


Have you heard the early Neurosis stuff as well??

Not really man. I have "A Sun That Never Sets" and "Through Silver In Blood" and I've vaguely heard one or two tracks from The Word As Law and Pain of Mind.

I just liked some of the thick dirty basslines on A Sun That Never Sets so I started playing some of em. Drop D bass is sick as fuck.

Edit: Just downloaded some Amebix too, and I like.

I`m in a metal band and we are in need of a front women to complete our line-up. The kind of person were after can growl like the Walls Of Jericho / ISIS and have a melodic side too. (Is this too much to ask??!! hopefully not)

We play an unusual brand of progressive metal and have a massive range of influences, besides which trying to put ourselves in some genre - defined box is a waste of time imho, so we play metal, we rehearse two or three times a week and are based in hartlepool. So if your commited and not afraid of long, hot rehearsal's where you scream your throat out get in touch  ;)

TWO ADVERTS.

DRUMMER AND VOCALS FOR CRUST BAND. AMEBIX, DOOM, TRAGEDY, HIS HERO IS GONE.

----

Drummer needed for desolate black metal project. In the vein of the first Katatonia ep but perhaps thrashier in the Bathory vein. Maybe a vocalist as well. Absolutely no metalcore involved in the slightest. We may never play live, but I need to make some filthy and evil recordings. I don't mind if you're satanic, but the lyrics to this band will be more hateful of everything as opposed to worshipping an entity which might not even exist. Attitude is essential, the reason Sepultura now suck is because they forgot who they were when they recorded Morbid Visions and Bestial Devastation.

So essentially, this may only be a studio project, so your narcissism can be left at the door.

Lets try something different.

I play guitar (and to a lesser degree the Ukulele & Piano Accordion).

I like allot of stuff but since i need to give some sort of example; Devo, Pixies, The Offspring, Bloodhoundgang, Helloween, Megadeth, Onmyouza, Maiden, Talking heads, Die Toten Hosen stuff like that (or made simpler 80's synth pop, 80's HardRock, JapRock and German Punk).

Me and my singer(ex-drummer) are looking for a new drummer, someone really rather great if possible, and bassist, again-greatness would be nice, to complete a punk quartet along the lines of ramones/dropkick murphys/madness -what a combo.

prefer someone(s) of similair age is posseeblay, 17-18, and we like The ramones, the clash, dropkick murphys, NOFX, White Stripes, Sex pistols, Rancid

Mainly looking just to play and see what happens, but aiming high, id say we want to be Middlesbrough's band , Sunderland have The Futureheads, newcastle have Maximo Park (<---Awesome). So give me a bell/text whatever suits best 07865819392,

negative, they are perky. still, it doesnt really matter if you are interested and dont like them because we wont sound anything like or attempt to sound anything like..We're going for a sort of Ramones-ish punk sound with a bit of Pogues mixed in and the odd Ska/Reggae thing, basically we're just in it for fun and if you harbour any dreams of being a serious, respected musical figure we're not for you... Bassist and Drummer, are you out there?

I play guitar, rhythm preferably.

Influences are Death and Black Metal, mainly, but that aside, Primal Scream, Nick Cave, AC/DC, The Virgins and Motorhead.

I want to play Rock, plain and simple, any kind of Rock music, although heavy, bass-y blues-y rock is a mighty fine idea.

Any takers?

'Hammerfist' are rekindling our search for a lead singer.
we are currently a 4-piece with
rhythm guitar/lead vocals (would like to step back to backing and focus on guitar)
bass/backing vocals
Lead guitar
drums
Influences, come from a wide range of metal, including Metallica, GNR, Sabbath, Testament, Slayer, Pantera, Iron Maiden.
We aim for atmospheric heavy metal, with chugging riffs, ripping solos and haunting melodies.
Vocal wise, we are looking for someone with a dirty growly powerful voice.
Think Hetfield meets Ozzy. Preferrably male, but open to the possibility of a girl. (our drummers a girl)
aged between 18-22.

Bonjour...

I have been given the task of finding a Bassist, which is proving pretty taxing, so ive decided to turn to Haxed :).  It's quite hard to put us into any particular genre, i guess we are sort of Ska, but then again not, the stuff we are writing is quite melodic and in some cases quite epic... (Nothing like Less than Jake or Reel Big Fish by the way). We currently have Sax, Trumpet, Drums and two guitarists, one of which sings...  We are all at prior in Gbro and are from that area (Nunthorpe, Normanby, Guisborough, Skelton & Brotton), mainly practicing in Guisborough, although we are looking for other places to practice.  We have a few quality songs written already, but they are lacking bass...

Anyway let me know if you are interested  :mikeisahomo

For those who can't be arsed to read back, I'm gonna repost this, because we really do need a singer.

 'Hammerfist' are rekindling our search for a lead singer.
we are currently a 4-piece with
rhythm guitar/lead vocals (would like to step back to backing and focus on guitar)
bass/backing vocals
Lead guitar
drums
Influences, come from a wide range of metal, including Metallica, GNR, Sabbath, Testament, Slayer, Pantera, Iron Maiden.
We aim for atmospheric heavy metal, with chugging riffs, ripping solos and haunting melodies.
Vocal wise, we are looking for someone with a dirty growly powerful voice.
Think Hetfield meets Ozzy. Preferrably male, but open to the possibility of a girl. (our drummers a girl)
aged between 18-22.

Probably in the wrong place, as it's more of a quick query than anything else. I don't just wanna single out Petelessthanzero for this either, because I see it a lot where musician ads are placed, but why do people put "no knobheads" or something similar at the end of an ad?

Do people actually read these, going, "Hmmmm. Yip. I play bass. Check. I love The Strokes, BRMC and AFI. Check there. I'm only 22. That's a check. Right, I'll apply for this, the....hold up. No knobheads. Bollocks, that's me out then, I'm a right cunt. Hey ho"

Feel free to delete, mods, as I accept this is probably a nonsense kindda post, but I am just a little curious.

I'm 17, I live in Redcar, and I'm a bassist, been going for about a year and a half. I'm one of those right weird blokes who has a habit of listening to every different form of rock so, I present to you;
The Categorical Influence list: (Insert fitting expressions of Shock & Awe here)

Metal - Iron Maiden, Trivium to an extent
Emo - FFAF, My Chemical Romance
Punk - Anti-Flag, Lars & the Bastards
Ska - 3dBsDown, [Spunge] &... THE QUICHE! WOO!
Other genres: Foo Fighters, Brand New, Muse, The Cure

Well, that's enough of my timewastery randomness. Currently in a band, but the rest of them won't get off their arses and make some music, so I'll probably quit.

Female vocalist wanted to perform "Clean" vocals for
Extreme Metal/Progressive Death Band.

Bassist also wanted.

Influences: Opeth, My Dying Bride, Arcturus and Dimmu Borgir  

Would describe our sound as: Dark, Technical, Atmospheric, Heavy.

Would be a bonus if you could fill both these roles.

So if you like the sound of this and fancy doing something a bit different than what you're used to then send one of those new fangled "Electronic Mails" to...

Hello!

I'm wanting to do something acoustic but don't sing!

So just wondered if there's anyone out there who fancies something on the quiet side!

I don't particularly write many lyrics so it'd be perfect if there was someone who does and just needs music writing/guitar playing.

I listen to allsorts but at the mo I'd say Foo Fighters, Green Day and Incubus mostly.

Cheers

Brandtson, Zolof, popnrollfuzzpunk.

I also currently like anything on deep elm except fightstar, q and not u, all-time quaterback, last days of april, postal service, bloc party, fire divine, ramones.

the point? I've written and recorded some sub-three minute fuzzy pop tunes, vocals required as I sound like a petrified rhinocerous. A view to sending out some demos and maybe a band might come of it, alternatively just me recording something and you singing every once in a while may also be fun.

Instrumentally we take alot of inspiration from trivum, killswitch, metallica and slayer (we won't eat you if you can't scream or you take influences from elsewhere like ac/dc, aerosmith etc). You do need a reasonable amount of talent, commitment and stage character. If interested email me at mosley666@hotmail.co.uk
forgot to mention we're based in Stockton but we make regular trips to boro lorne street studios so a bit of flexibility would be helpful as well

Just a quick note for people who are musicians and also attend the Teesside University, you might be interested in joining our Musicians Society where we host regular jam sessions and socials.  If you join up you also have access to our equipment (drum kit, mics, keyboard, amps etc) and can book out ClubOne in the students union, completely free of charge.

Our forums for more information: http://www.gasmarc7.co.uk/phpBB2/

I want to be in a band with someone who isn't a complete fucking faggot and who actually does want to play loads of gigs and go to the studio as often as possible to record demo's and what not.

I play guitar. I like indie-rock/punk-rock/emo and things with a good poppy melody.

Hey, don't know if anyone knows on here yet but I think Brazen Fond have virtually split up after taking a break to write songs and realising there was a divide down the middle were 2 people wanted to go heavier and 2 people wanted to go weirder and robotic.

Me (guitar) and Zed (the bassist from Brazen Fond) are starting a new band.
The style were going for is a crazy disco fuelled band - take Blackwire or more locally Dartz! for example of what we mean.

Were influenced from pretty much everything including (in no particular order) the likes of Soulwax, Q and Not U, Elastica, The Jam, Kaptainblack etc etc basically anybody playing cool riffs.... Oh and I almost forgot Jacko!

We require 2 confident vocalists, another guitarist, a drummer and possible a keyboard player.

We did try to start this as a side project earlier this year but our time became heavily consumed in Brazen Fond.

If anyone is interested please IM me or email me on burleigh67@hotmail.com

Serious interest only though.

Thanks!

Hi Everybody.

My band 'Cantarte' require a good, reliable bass player. By this I mean someone who can actually play bass and actually owns the right equipment. Not somebody who intends to start learning or has been playing for a month etc and lives in London.

Basically Broome (bass) is now going to play 2nd guitar. We are an ambitious band so anyone interested will need to be committed but also up for a laugh etc.. Knob heads need not apply - Thats my job :P

Anyone who in interested in having a practice with us, IM me and I will send you a CD of all our tracks along with the bass tabs.

Also to get an idea of what we sound like you can check out our myspace at: www.myspace.com/cantarte (http://www.myspace.com/cantarte)

Nice one, Cheers

Right, listed quite a few times, but still no interest or anything, and I dunno, it seems to be really hard to form a band with people who can be bothered to muster the energy to actually practise.
Anyway, I play guitar and sing. I did the aforementioned actions in Payola (www.myspace.com/payola), which ended about this time last year. My influences vary quite a bit, but into bands like Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Broken Social Scene, Cap'N Jazz, The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg, Q and Not U, Elliott Smith, The Flaming Lips, The Smiths, American Football, Bloc Party, At The Drive-In and so on...
Basically, I have a drummer who is into some similar stuff to above (although he does like his metal), and I'm looking for perhaps another guitarist and a bassist. Or even a vocalist if you are interested.

Guitarist/Backing Vox *Offered*
I've been playing guitar for a few years and i've been the main vocalist in a band for around 18 months. I can appreciate any music with a good melody, a bouncy beat or an interesting theme to draw me in. I listen to a pretty wide range of music but i tend to prefer the hard rock/metal path. I've always had a healthy liking for a dark, evil sound. I'd say my influences are Metallica/Pantera/Testament/Slayer but i like a lot of harder 'AND' softer music going from Obituary right through to The Beatles.

Based in Stockton.

wanted vocalists,

mostly im interested in female vocals but theres no restrictions.

i am recording songs on my computer and i want them to have vocals, the songs are somewhere between a mixture of; curve, the fall (2001 - 2003), squarepusher, satans tornade, ikara colt, fantomas, lost sounds,

or i guess you could say mudhoney jaming with goldfrapp,

i dont want to start a band so there will be no rehersals or gigs, we dont even have to meet as i can send you a song or two over the internet that you can add vocals too then send back,

i am also looking for a few vocalists, each can contribute to either one of 2 songs all of which will be put on something like myspace for everyone to enjoy, PM me if youd like to hear some tracks

i thank you all in advance for the overwhelming amount of responses,  :mikeisahomo

KILLERHEELS need a full time replacement for Emily on drums. If you haven't heard us we play unashamedly catchy disco rock in the vein of Blondie vs Kaisers but not sounding like either. We are currently 2 parts female (female vox) with me token bloke but a need a fourth member on drums.

You are...

Very good and able to play anything from punk to full on disco.
Able to play with headphones to backing loops.
Not in 10 other bands.
In possesion of own kit and transport.
Able to practice twice a week plus gigs/recording etc.
Desperate to be a successful drummer in a successful band.
A Girl/boy/somewhere in between aged 21-30 but the right person will get the gig.
Willing to play for no money, fork out for practices, recording, gigs etc for very little reward in the blind hope that a career in music beckons.

We have a set ready to go and are hoping to record a new 3 tracker in Jan 06.

If you are interested IM me or email neil@killerheelsband.com

Ta,

Neil

Hey there.

Firstly are you a vegetarian/vegan?

Secondly can you play an instrument?

Thirdly you need to have absolutely no knowledge of jazz but get a romantic feeling when you look at those old two tone/sepia vinyl sleeves from the 50's.

So yes... it'll be like the desert sessions without distortion and talent

http://www.myspace.com/theveganrhythmsection

I'm going to book a rehearsal  randomly at studio 64 so whoever turns up is more than welcome. Ryan is on cornet so our only requirement is a drummer but we can use crappy electronics otherwise. Also everything is in C and G as Ryan currently has not valve oil BUT i have vomit in my amp which I hear sounds nice for 'comping'


Also I have a spare portable TV if the 15 minute society need one

I feel bad. I liked them

They Died In Vain require a bassist.

We're a post-hardcore/metal/emo outfit, with 2 amazing guitarists, Rich Baker of ex Payola fame on the drums and me on vocals.

We practise in Middlesbrough, Aged 18-22, have our own transport.

Influences are:

Atreyu
Killswitch Engage
Deftones
As I Lay Dying
Darkest Hour

Looking to play some fast melodic shit, so if you're up for it, send an email to godofgsxr@msn.com and we'll chat.

Bass void seems to be filled, but we're now left looking for a drummer  :cheesy

As per above, we're a band planning to shortly produce our first demo.

2 Songs now just about complete and starts made on a handful of others, plan is to get this demo done and start gigging around the Summer.

Also, main influences, as previous, are Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Faith No More, Pink Floyd, Pumpkins, Marillion, 'White Pony' Deftones, NIN and probably numerous others.

Elements of our sound tend to range from Skynyrd-esque classic rock to industrial-tinged little muggers.

Sound good?

Well, if you fancy pelting the skins for it, IM me or E-mail alexandergsmith1983@gmail.com.

Cheers, m'dears!

Yeah, another advert from me...

Bass player needed for a wierd Finch/Ataris/Killswitch Engage crossover type band. We were previously called They Died In Vain, but changed style, looking for another name now, as TDIV no longer fits.

Looking to gig within a few months, one or two songs already penned and still in the works, few more on the way... All without basslines so you get to be completely original :D

Age 18+
Practise in Middlesbrough
Own equipment necessary, although bassists generally bum amps from other people at gigs.
Own transport would be cool, but we do have 2 cars

We're 100% serious, so please be yourself.

Some bands I've sometimes/often seen/heard classified as prog:

Genesis
Meshuggah
The Mars Volta

It's really an umbrella more than a box.

Just a term for if said band/artist/project are partial to sound experimentation.

I just figured I needed to stress the "prog" in my advert, as the stuff we're writing has an overall experimental feel, alongside the hallmarks of several separate genres. A bit of a melting pot, if you like.

Any drummers?  :grouchy

We need a bassist. They are to be in a band with myself, Si (yes, the sexier than harrison ford admin off here) and Phil (shinobixthegayer on have or summat)

They have to like punk/pop-punk.  Like Nofx, Bad religion, Blink, No use for a name, Afi etc

They also have to have a sense of humour and not be offended by mens balls.  If they can drive, that would also be a bonus, as transport is often a problem with my band!  Material is half written already, and were experienced at gigging and stuff, so we arent some band that will be making plans then not carrying them out like a lot do!

In short, if you play bass, like punk, beer and bad taste jokes.  Message me!

I run a promotions company - which is useful.
But doesnt mean I'm going to do all the work :P
I will book gigs/ tours etc when/ if the time comes. ( The band would not play at the crown)

I don't care what type of music, as long as its good (take that as you will)

Yes, I'm already in another band. But the amount we can do is limited at the moment, so i'm keen to get back onstage as I haven't done a gig since last summer.

A guitarist here looking for a committed band.
The main influnces on my playing are QOTSA, Chuck Berry, The Ramones, The Clash, Korn, Wes Borland, Metallica, Nirvana, Blink 182, Death from above 1979, the red hot chilli peppers.
I enjoy playing most types of punk, metal, indie (yes you heard me) and occasionally enjoy playing some bluesy stuff. I'm currently getting more into disco rock too.
I have basic knowledge of music/guitar theory and all that stuff and have a pretty good setup for playing live.  Marshall AVT150H head with a marshall 1960 cab, Ibanez artcore AG86, BC Rich 7string warlock, Ibanez 7 string RG and yamaha acoustic guitar.
I write quite a bit of music too so err yeah any takers?

I'm starting a band, called White Dwarf. It's gonna just be me and a vocalist, and it's light acoustic rock. I've been writing a little, but I could do with a singer, if at all possible somebody who also has some idea of recording, and such, because I don't have anything. If you want, I'll send you some real low-quality guitar clips of the stuff I'm writing (recorded in windows sound recorder using a webcam mike -so definitely low qual)

The vocal sound I'm after is a mix between Maynard James Keenan of Tool/APC and Brandon Boyd of Incubus (expecially from when he was singing in Aqueous Transmission)

If you're interested, drop me a message here or on the myspace, at myspace.com/whitedwarfrock

Earlier in this thread, I said I wanted a singer for an acoustic band, someonne who sounds like Maynard from tool, or Brandon from Incubus. Some hybrid of the two, or something along those lines.

I still want that, but I'm also a bassist who loves heavy metal. I'm in a metal band, but we do fuck all. I'm fairly good at bass and I'm quite creative, so I want a decent band to join. Any metal bands looking for bassists? Just PM me! However,  I can't drive, so preferably someone in Marske, Redcar, New Marske, or Saltburn. Also, I'm having amp trouble, so I might have to lend one. I may be able to lend one off a friend of mine until I have a new one, but when I get a new one, it'll probably be August or thereabouts.

-Six By Seven - 04

Bass player required to work with very talented guitarist and drummer. Loads of material and ideas to work with, have our own PA and 32 track recorder. We are looking for a fresh start, new band name and are up for going in any direction. Material we have can only be described as jazz metal, we like to mess with weird time signatures and incorporate jams into songs.

We are based in Middlesbrough and Marske, aged 22 and 23 and are wanting to gig and record original material. Bass player must have own equipment and ideally have transport and experience of playing in a band.

Influences: Anything by Mike Patton (Tomahawk, Faith No More, Fantomas, Mr Bungle etc…), Fugazi, Jesus Lizard, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Locust, Radiohead, Super Furrys, Converge, Alice in Chains, Polar Bear, Mars Volta etc….

If you are interested or know of someone that may be then please contact.

To be honest most people who post in here I probably wouldn't start a band off with because I don't know what they are like as people... you need chemistry.
I have a full set worth of songs, a style I've never gone for before and I think they are possibley the most exciting songs I've ever writtien (to be fair I didn't really right songs until a few months back, I just riffed about). I really want to get these songs out but I want to do it with the right people and not do it half heartedly.

Edit: and to be fair my mate is that good at Bass you'd piss your pants watching him  ;)

This add still applies, there are some samples of out music on www.myspace.com/simianband, we are currently doing the singing ourselfs but as the music is quite demanding we are limited to go as far as we would like with the singing so if there are and good throaty singers out there that want a go then get in touch. and as for the pesimists that won't start a band on here due to fear of bad chemistry, sort yourself out man, your not gonna find the best candidates on your door step! ive been in a few bands started with strangers and its nothing to fear at all, people around here need to get together and play more, then this place might actually get some good bands and a music scene!!!

maybe posts in this thread should have an expiry date or something, so like after a month each post gets binned, so only relevant info is in the thread, and if people still need their extra member or whatever they can ask again.

Since when was a month a defined time of relevance?

There isn't a defined time of relevance, but a month is reasonable, I think. The advert can always be reposted, once it's gone.

yes but if we did it monthly, certain advertising would be disadvantaged. for example if the advert was posted in february, it wouldn't remain as long. and what about the chinese, who are on a different calendar to us westerners?

your system is flawed and undoubtedly racist.

erm... Right. Lets set it to thirty days instead of a month then, shall we?

I've already cleared the non band request posts from here twice :polizei .  People with suggestions on how to change aspects of Haxed are best off to contact the admins directly.  This will give you a definitive answer rather than posting on here.  Thank you.

Or we could just leave the reasonably workable system intact perhaps?

Do you honestly see someone checking to make sure things last 30 days exactly? And what a fuss on, having to check back and re-post all of your details on the off chance you stopped counting at 24 days and missed the cut off date.

i like the idea of having actual adverts for bands here, rather than a load of pish that has no relevence to bands at all

I say start the thread again, move all the SHITE out, and keep it like that.

Or just continue this one, which was fine until somebody suggested changing it and a massive, needless debate kicked up.

In the confusion of this thread, great gems could be found.

Oh for christs sake, if it matters that much, just delete the last few pages...

I really can't see why you care, though. It's not like hardly anyone reads the adverts in here, and few people post enough information to interest anyone anyways.
