Thomas McDonald and the Record Collection


Lead Guitar, Trumpet, Saxophone, Piano, Trombone.


i'm a singer songwriter that grew up on punk rock and played in punk rock and hardcore bands in this area for a good number of years. few years back i started writnig a lot of songs in the vein of 80's american rock (bruce springsteen, tom petty, bryan adams),but also with a 80's and 90's college rock kind of thing (the replacements, dinosaur jr, superchunk).i put a band together to play a couple of my songs and it was going real well. made the decision to move to austin texas to take it more serious. was there about three weeks and it all fell apart. that stuff is still on under the name "old habits and the diehards" if ya wanna check it out. a year goes by and i started gettin itchy, so i asked some friends of mine to help me record an E.P. all that being said, i'm back and got some dudes together play my songs. the E.P. is due to come out (independently) within the next two months. i need a lead guitar player that gets what i'm trying to do. i need a guy who understands when to noodle and when to ease back. keep in mind, i am a punk rock kid, but i love rock and roll and i think they go together just fine. check out the song, and if you can play the leads with confidence get at me. maybe we can figure something out. oldhabits138
