Sax?

Recommended Posts

Any underutilised delinquent sax players wanna join a pop group ?

We specialise in hi speed minimised throwaway pop and draw influences from bands like T Rex, New York Dolls, Suicide, Early Roxy Music, Early Bowie and shitloads of other stuff that no one else likes. Not forgetting X Ray Spex obviously. Some people describe us as cross dressing glammy bubblegum punkoid faggots. Some people just hate us.

We are demanding (musically not emotionally) and work/gig quite hard and do strange gigs in strange places (only occasionally in Aberdeen) so you would need to be prepared to travel sometimes and have a current passport and a robust flight case for your musical device

Technical ability is not high on the agenda

A total spunkmuffin attitude is important to us though

Our prospects of changing the world are realistically zero, but our efforts rarely go totally un-noticed by the media who seem to appreciate our thang

recent example: Vic Galloway ''The Shocks are fucking out there man.....you need to play in Tokyo and Berlin, not here!'' (I think thats meant in a nice way) and his cohort Gill Mills 'Real Shocks - my favorite band of the festival, all glitter, big hair and rocknroll!''

its also as much fun as doing music can be sometimes

it is only occasionally dangerous (we were nearly shot in a bar in Spain and I was questioned by the Feds in London).....but its normally ok and quite funny....honest

So anyhow, we are planning live missions to several art college establishmnets, London clubs etc in the Autumn so joining before then would be tres cool ...if you exist?

Any slight interest at all.....please PM me.

Thanking you much

Yes.... swap 'a' for 'e' in Sax....

But that accusation is true. ;)

And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

i play sax but i am shit at it.

being shit at it would not exclude you by any means....none of us can play properly either

but I checked yer profile and your age probably does

unfortunately we need someone over 18 for legal reasons in a lot of the places we play, and preferably someone who looks at least 21, so they can come to certain types of events in other countries......my apologies i forgot to mention that bit.....we managed to pass Flava off as a 22 year old with the help of cosmetics in the states (real age 18 at the time) and theres every chance we are going back

cheers anyway

i would do it if i could manage but i dont know if the the cuts schedule wouldnt permit it.

probably be a conflict of schedules there mate, two busy bands, meaning gig dates would inevitably clash at some point creating muchos conlict between two bands who are allies in the war against mediocraty at the moment.....never mind

So I should really also then clarify that its in a sense a full time Saxy position we are looking for....ie anyone in us, basically puts our stuff first, and then stuff with other bands/projects happens second to that....it works for us, so thats what we need from anyone who might be interested

still no bad sax people ?

dammit

even quite rubbishy sax players are invited to apply for this position (in fact the less technical ability the better probably)

still plenty of time join....the offer only closes when we finish the LP and hit the road again (October)
