  1. There's a song by Reef, one of the last one's on Rides where Gary stringer wails for about 22 seconds... it's an immense ending to an otherwise meh song

    Also, the scream by Black Francis on Nimrod's Song by Pixies is great

    Eddie Vedder on W.M.A is a quality scream....more of a well-held long croaky note, but class nonetheless

  2. Hello,

    I'm 25 and I'm bored and looking to get involved in a band again. I play guitar to a pretty decent level - I play a fender telecaster and have a marshall guvnor distortion and boss delay pedals, looking to get some tremolo/reverb pedal too.... I have this band sound in my head I'd like to try and realise....have songs - but not recorded...

    I used to play the gig scene regularly for about 3 years as a bass player in a rockabilly band and I rate my bass playing as better than average... I know what the notes are, rather than just fret numbers ;) So ideally I would like to join/start a band where i can perhaps do both.... not at the same time obviously :o)

    I also have my new flatmate who is into the same music as me and a decent guitar player with good ideas, who's keen to get a band going...


    The Twilight Sad




    Sonic Youth

    The Hold Steady



    Death Cab


    Nick Cave


    The Smiths


    Nine Inch Nails

    Trail of Dead...

    etc :up:

    looking to either recruit members or join an existing project if you think I fit the bill...

    I also like beer.

    PM if interested :o)


  3. Bass player required for new band. Got songs already, just need competent bass lines to complete the sound. Soundin very good so far. :) Should be gigging by the end of the summer.

    Kinda do the cool guitar riff that repeats to changing bass line thing.

    Bands we like: Pixies, The Cure, At the drive in, The Cribs, Death Cab for Cutie, MBV, Sons and daughters, Pavement, Trail of Dead, We are Scientists, Eels, Television, The Strokes, Sebadoh, Slint, TV on the Radio, early REM. Idlewild. The Shins. Young Knives. Slowdive. Mogwai.

    Interested? Then PM me and we'll sort out an audition. Not an opportunity to miss! ;)



  4. We are a three piece (guitar, bass and drums) who need a singer to complete the lineup. We have songs already going and more in the pipeline, just needed a good singer to add the vocals to them. Sounded pretty damn good so far. Ability to play keyboards or guitar would be an advantage (i can play keys)

    Influences: Sons & daughters, Pavement, The Cribs, Modest Mouse, The Long Blondes, Pixies, The Cure, Slint, TV on the Radio, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Biffy Clyro, Longwave, My Bloody Valentine, Super Furry Animals, The Shins, We are Scientists....to name a few.

    Age: ideally 18-26, male or female.

    If your interested or would like to know more, then feel free to send me a PM and I'll help as best I can. :up: 8-) :cheers:

  5. Hi. We are a three piece looking to recruit another guitarist and a vocalist to complete our line-up. So far I think we're sounding good, lots of potential here. We play original material, my songs with loads to follow. Plan to start gigging in the next few months. :up:

    It's difficult to pigeon-hole the type of sound Im going for but I take influence from bands such as:

    Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, Pixies, Sons and Daughters, Biffy Clyro, The Cure, early REM, We are Scientists, The Cribs, The Long Blondes, Trail of Dead, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Arctic Monkeys.

    Guitarist: The kind of guitarist Im looking for doesnt just strum along chords, but that actually contributes to the songs, with licks and counterriffs.... like Jose Santiago (Pixies) or Russell from Bloc Party... if you also have your own creative ideas/songs; so much the better. :)

    Vocalist: a confident individual, someone who can sing and is good a finding melodies.

    I dont care if your male or female. Ideally though you should be around the same age as the rest of the band, so 18-27. oh, and no metalheads. just no!!

    Sorry to sound a bit totaliterian or whatever, we're nice people really, just want only the right people to apply.

    If you think you might fit the bill, then PM me! or you can email me on headradio8041@yahoo.co.uk

    Thanks. Gary :)

  6. Hi. We need a new drummer. We play indie with a bit of funk thrown in. Sound like Sons and Daughters, Pixies, Modest Mouse, Rage against the Machine, Pavement, Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, We are Scientists, Beck, Trail of Dead, Arctic Monkeys, Young Knives....

    Basically I have loads of catchy riffs and chord sequences. Just need a good drummer who can play a range of drum styles to complete our line up. Than we can get gigging!!

    We are all around 22 years old.

    If your interested, then feel free to PM me.

    Gary :)

  7. Hi. We're an up and coming band, been together for about 3 months now. Already have our own material, sounding really good. There's a slot open for the right bass player to complete the lineup (so far 2 guitars and a drummer). Good potential here....

    Ideally, aged between 18-27 and be based in Aberdeen, be creative and committed!! Intrigued? then PM me....

  8. Hi. We are an up and coming new band, with own material already, looking to hire a keyboard player, one who preferably could be able to add backing/counter vocals to some of the songs.... (so far we are a four piece, two guitars, drums and bass!!)

  9. Hi. We are a four piece band looking for a vocalist to add kick ass vocal melodies to the tunes we have!! i am the songwriter/guitarist, have a least ten-12 good tunes, of which four we are playing at the moment. I am constantly writing. There is good potential here.

    Influences: The Libertines, Pixies, Sons and Daughters, Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, The Cure, Broken Social Scene, Early REM, Pavement, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Smiths, We are Scientists, The Rapture, The Young Knives, The Cribs, Smashing Pumpkins, Interpol, Radiohead....

    Ideally, you should be between 18-27, male or female it doesnt matter, and be good at improvising and perhaps writing lyrics too. If your intrigued/interested, get in touch on headradio8041@yahoo.co.uk

  10. Hi. I am trying to get a band back up and running. So far I have me (guitarist, songwriter) and a singer! I already have severeal songs written, and I am looking for members who are creative and competent.

    I hope to create a five/6 piece, so I need a good drummer (preferably with previous band experience), a bass player and a keyboardist. Maybe another guiatarist too.

    The bands which im influenced by are: Arcade Fire, Weezer, The Strokes, The Smiths, We are Scientists, Modest Mouse, The Libertines, Editors, Belle and Sebastian, Pixies, The Cure, Longwave, Elbow, Supergrass, Death Cab for Cutie, Radiohead, Trail of Dead, Arctic Monkeys, Be Your Own Pet, Biffy Clyro, Interpol, Blondie, Cooper Temple Clause..... amongst others.

    I am a big fan of driving, Cure-esque bass lines, so I really need a solid rhythm section, maybe even some processed beats..... If your a fan of some of the bands I mentioned you'll fit in well

    I dont care if your male or female, but Im 22, so be good if the other members were around the same age, i.e. 18-28. Interested, then PM me :D
