ABOUT

I have been writing music with another guitarist/vocalist and we are looking for bass and drums. We intend to play shows somewhat regularly and possibly some smaller tours if all goes well. We have a few songs fairly close to completion. We are really just looking for a couple of people who like playing and enjoy the challenges of creating something. We lean towards heavy, dynamic, dissonant type sounds and like to mess around with different odd meters too, but we typically have slower more melodic stuff that contrasts with the more aggressive aspects. We both are capable of filling in on bass and drums as well to aid in writing, but are ultimately looking to not have to do that. We get together every Sunday in North Seattle and typically play for about 5 or 6 hours and try to do 1 other night a week as well. We are open to musicians that are interested in collaborating virtually as well. We have recording capabilities and are down to share files and work on things remotely if we find a good fit.

Influences

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is a major mutual influence for us. Some others would be The Melvins, Shellac, NoMeansNo, King Crimson, Fugazi, Neurosis, Botch, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Doors, Zeppelin.... That being said, we have no desire to sound exactly like any other band, and try to make a point to put together things that feel new and exciting to our ears.

EQUIPMENT

I play through a 66' fender bassman with a vintage Marshall 4x12, a handful of pedals that seem to constantly get adjusted and rearranged. The other guitar player uses an Orange TH30 through an old Red Bear cab and a handful of pedals as well. We have a decent, but not great, bass and bass rig set up as well as a nice full Canopus birch drum kit.
