ABOUT

[Updated May 3, 2020]
Punk/experimental guitarist seeking bandmates in the state of Connecticut for collective songwriting. I've got a drummer and bassist; looking for singer/synth player. Current songs are inspired by Drive Like Jehu and Joy Division (see my full list of influences below) but I'm looking to take it in a more industrial/noise/no wave direction (hence, the need for synthesizers). But I'm open to incorporating just about any style of music into this stew.
Due to the current pandemic, we're not planning sessions until the summer at the very earliest, as we practice in Westchester County, NY, just over the Connecticut border and in Worcester, MA. Still, feel free to reach out on here if you're interested; we'd love to chat music with you and see if you're a good fit for then.
If this interests you but you don't have a premium account, you can reach out to me at psyclopse78 [at] gmail [dot] com
