Hey, looking to start or join a band. Not looking for anything too serious as I'm going to school full time at the moment, but I'd like to gig.
Ideally we'd be playing some kind of punk or pop-punk music, but I'm down for anything that's vaguely alt-rock. I'm mainly interested in playing lead or rhythm guitar and maybe doing some backing vocals..As you can see from my samples, I'm not the greatest singer, haha.
I've got a little recording experience too. I work in Cubase and have a few Shure SM57/58s lying around.
Let me know if you're interested and we can get something going!
Some samples below of my playing.
contact me at benzuvsteel at gee mail if interested.

Jumbo Joltz - Held to the Mirror
Jumbo Joltz - Held to the MirrorIt seems like every day our heads collide. When will the bickering subside? I've got the feathers and you're covered in spikes. It's what we see to ease our minds. The loaded guns are pointed at me. They're ready to fire on the count of three. Am I just the target in my own head? Or are your hands stained red? I think it's time to leave. We're running out of steam. I'll find a different road and take it down to where it goes and take in the scenery. Then maybe we can breathe. Let's curl our fingers up and tape them shut. Stop them from picking at the dirt. The orange figure will be sanded down with a stone coated in deep blue. The bullets pierce through paper thin walls, and the pillars can barely stand upright. My builders failed to check the floor plans. Or did you kick the door down? We've got to shelve away differences that seem slight. We know what the contract shows, and we'll learn how to show control. Or maybe we'll let it die. It's not like we didn't try.
Jumbo Joltz - Like Yes (in Spanish)
Jumbo Joltz - Like Yes (in Spanish)I walked in on the very first day and didn't think anything of you. Well, anything would be off the mark - a crude and clumsy slip of the tongue. I'm guessing that I looked a little lost so you offered me a helping hand. You told me he had drifted afar and played the part of my paper clip. Now I'm trapped in this room with you, and I don't know what to do. Just take me far away from the endless hope of the day after day. I made this bed to get away. The springs pierce away the shattered past. They catapult me into the air and now I'm touching down on rocky ground. I feared the moment you'd realize that I'm just a drifter lost at sea. And was I even anything to you but a blip on a rusted radar? I found out about you the worst thing I wish I never knew. It threw me way off course but can you really get lost with no where to start? I tried to salvage this sinking ship with just one last ditch attempt. As I witnessed the deck submerge I wondered "was it even there at all?" The stars may dim with age, but they'll never fully fade away. If we get lost on the trail, know that your mark has been branded and I'll wear it well.
Jumbo Joltz - Shamrock Disposal
Jumbo Joltz - Shamrock DisposalLately I've been wandering through the aimless void of nothing at all. At every corner I turn, I just find another staircase built for falls. You're just another star in the sky that's not aligned with all of the others. Constellations abound. You will find not every one is fully formed. I've had enough of these car shows. Don't wanna talk about your brand new clothes. Are we living the status quo? No time to act so civil. Let us disobey. I'm trapped in this box now. Been waiting six long years to get out. But when it's time to break out, will there be one waiting there for me? Is it really on anyone else, or can it be overwhelming vanity that has me clawing at so many faults when everyone else gets on fine? Alienation's a red flag when you hand it out as a passive attack to drive away every strain of a friend when you're afraid to stay away. My mind's been warped to cast you all in doubt. And I'm calling you out! Every moment I question every word, every lack of expression. I start to wonder if it's worth it at all when in the end there is no change. And I'll have nothing to fold if I won't gamble on my dignity. Such a cold and calculated risk, but it's a bet I'll hedge all day. Say to me that you have arrived because...
Jumbo Joltz - Sidelines Make Byelines
Jumbo Joltz - Sidelines Make ByelinesI tried my best to fend off this feeling. I coasted on the right side of hell. Don't tell me about the consequences. Straight down this rabbit hole I'll go! Looked for a detour, (On my way!) searing through eroded cracks. (Barricade!) Didn't think I'd need one, (Hold that gaze!) but widened fissures pulled me in late at night like they always seem to do. Lost all control to the grave once again. Let the droning non-event drag on and on. Wrest me from the demons of aggressive inaction, always on the prowl with their claws ever threatening. I see the flames burn in contentment without a single lick of the passion. Only through a sense of obligation. I'll just float and let the torches melt! Swimming my way out (Let me drown!) through a maze of dead ends (No way out!) frayed at every other end. (Great devout!) I'll weave through burning knots as if I had a choice. And you know I always do. I'll see her still, just one more time. Not worried about it, yeah! We're on the run, but not moving on. Countdown to judgment day! We're lining up among the throngs of innocents who couldn't bear the standard. Not so much to ask for! Our eyes transfixed on the sea of red whose victims held no victims. The actors had no scripts, no lines, no means with which to define! You're just another casualty, hardly another person. Cast him into the wake. The easiest decision we've ever made! I'm pleading for another chance. Release me from the depths of this regret. Not so much to ask for! Contorting rationale takes you every which way, heading into a brick wall. The actors had no scripts, no lines, no means with which to define! Cut the camera and fade the lights!
