My name's Alex and for the last couple years, I've been working on a project called "The Corinians". We strive to be a progressive rock band with funk/blues influences slathered with copious amounts of effects and general weirdness. We've recently completed a fifty minute sampler EP that we are in the process of releasing and finally feel ready to start playing shows. The band right now consists of me, a singer/additional guitarist, and a drummer. We're looking for a bassist who really knows and cares about his instrument and it's important role in a song. We've all been playing music for about ten years now, so someone with similar (or better) experience and skill is what we badly need. An understanding of music theory is terrific, but in no way a requirement.
We're really hoping to find someone who can become part of the family we have and be a part of a long, stable lineup, but someone to just help fill in for a few starter shows can also work. We're all in our early twenties, enjoy [adult swim], internet drama, and finding weirder and weirder music, so that's the sorta guy we're looking for. This band puts a high priority on maintaining a sense of humor.
If you have any idea who or what I'm talking about and want any part in it, please don't hesitate to introduce yourself.

Our biggest influences include: Umphrey's McGee, The Mars Volta, Mr. Bungle, The Dead Weather, and The Flaming Lips. Jazz fusion and afrobeat are genres we've grown into and will incorporate. And, of course, we will always look to the progenitors of prog-people like King Crimson, Frank Zappa, and Rush-for guidance.
