SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Drums, Keyboard.
Played in an Industrial Punk called "Killing Floor" in the 90's on Cargo Reconstriction Label. We called our specific sub-genre "Wood" as we used live drums, bass and guitar along with heavy sequencing. Not such a novel concept these days as it was back then.
Currently trying to put together an old-school Funk band but I'm also open to alternative music again if you have a project ready to go.
I am frequently told I'm a very smooth (whatever that means) bass player as I focus more on building (and blending with) the groove and not trying to be the next virtuoso bassist (I can pull off the virtuoso thing if needed but it's just not my thing).

Tried to treat the bass more as a melodic instrument with this. I was really inspired by a band I saw back in the late 80s called "Hugo Largo" and how they used bass guitar as melodic instruments. Played through my old ADA tube guitar preamp to get that bity distortion.
