Vocalist - Soprano, Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Vocalist - Alto.

ABOUT

Alternative, guitar-oriented garage rock. Tracks are mostly instrumentals under the previous band name Thankful for Tractors (except Red Queen). I play all guitars and bass (and vocals on Red Queen) on all tracks, all of which I wrote. Drums are loops generated in Garageband or loops sampled from other recordings. I can't play drums. I've written several songs with lyrics, too, but I'm most comfortable playing guitar, as my voice is a bit shaky.

Eee male at truckstobyhalia (at) geeemaaaail (dot) com if interested and looking for a guitarist.

Influences

It's hard to find people in the Mid-South who like the music I do, so I'll list my influences in the genres listed. Bob Mould, Pixies, Sebadoh, White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Stooges, The Greenhornes, Holly Golightly, Thee Headcoats, The Cramps, The Sonics, The Black Keys, The Gories, and The Oblivians, but I have alter-egos: blues, jazz, old country, rockabilly. Unlike most garage punk guitarists, I can play jazz, blues, and country as well. See my other accounts, The Jett Powers Incident and MartiniTime. Anything that has cool or energetic guitar, from punk and garage rock to alternative rock to alt country to jazz, but I'm not much into Metal or Southern Rock or Singer-Songwriter stuff. I like some classic rock, but I am more a fan of the sixties classic rock (Byrds, Animals, Beatles, Stones, Yardbirds) than of seventies classic rock.

EQUIPMENT

Cool looking and sounding guitars, amps, and effects (slap back, tremolo, overdrive, reverb). I have a gnarly fuzz pedal, and if threatened, I'll use it. My current favorite guitar is my Gretsch G6120 Hot Rod hollowbody.
