Exciting opportunity to join a North Somerset band with a difference – BS49 area.
A Bass guitarist, Lead guitarist, Rhythm guitarist and Vocalist needed to join me, the drummer, and form this start-up band to play covers of rock (not rock and roll) songs that have something about them.
So what makes this project different.
As I said earlier I am a drummer, I use an electronic kit. This is a deliberate choice as it gives me the flexibility of using different sounding drum kits but also it allows me to trigger certain rock song content and/or effects that are an integral part of the song. Examples are – the car door open and slam, engine start and car pull away at the beginning of Love Is The Drug, or the synth sound at the start of She Sells Sanctuary.
The bands whose music comes to mind are Buzzcocks, Free, Kaiser Chiefs, Led Zeppelin, Midnight Oil, Queen, T-Rex, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones Thin Lizzy to name a few.
If you are a vocalist and can really deliver songs such as 20th Century Boy, A Kind Of Magic, All Day And All Of The Night, All Right Now, Beds Are Burning, Boys Are Back In Town, Ever Fallen In Love, Honky Tonk Women, Hurting Kind, I Predict A Riot, Jumping Jack Flash, Love Is The Drug, Make Me Smile, Mama Told Me Not To Come, Mony Mony, Mustang Sally, My Sharona, Rock And Roll, Route 66, She Sells Sanctuary, Summer Of 69, Teenage Kicks, Walk This Way, Wishing Well, then you are what I am looking for.
If you are a guitarist or bass player and you are OK with what I want to achieve then great.
No gigs are planned at this stage but definitely in the future when we are ready.
You can listen to me playing on BandMix. Search for Ancien and then view Killin It.
