Non-Metal Band Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Just as an alternative to what appears to be a predominantly metal/heavy rockscene here, thought I'd start a thread for anyone interested in the other genres I heard something about a while ago somewhere.

I play bass and, um, fruity loops (and a bit of acoustic. Well, I have an acoustic anyway). My bass work is basically based around (attempting to) emulate Squarepusher, Can, Sonic Youth, United States of America, Television, Teenage Fanclub, Mogwai etc... but less bass-orientated stuff is cool too. Non-wanky experimental stuff too - The Books, Aphex, Animal Collective, The Boredoms...

Also, wtf is with Tunnels these days? The music's a bit shit, think they need Caribou back. DOes anyone even go there anymore?

Im open to try just about everything. I use my computer and dictaphones to make my noise so as far as a band goes id be the dullest drummer ever. Imagin keith moon behind a laptop, works about as well as chat up line.

But im up for anything, i guess jamming is out the question as it takes me ages to knock out a 2 minute drum track.

I listen to alot of music from the Specials and the Beat to Ventian Snares and La Peste. So im realy up for any thing.

Recently iv been listening to alot of dubstep, reggae, electro, house and indie.

If that helps you at all.

Sent you a pm.
