Musicians wanted for noisy, messy pop thrills from Vancouver BC
Instruments: Bass, Guitar details
I thought I'd put the call out to see if anyone out there'd be interested in forming some sort of weird, wonky, indie-pop band? I've just arrived in Canada from the UK and thought it'd be a good excuse to meet some like-minded folks and make some cool music.
Figured Vancouver probably had enough sensitive alt-rock bands for the time being so I'd like to have a bash at doing something a bit poppier and dancier, but still a bit DIY and rough round the edges. You know, the sort stuff that makes you go "oh, I love this one!" and sends you stumbling out onto the dancefloor when they play it at 2am at some dodgy indie club.
Theres not much in way of a plan as yet. Just thought I'd put the bat-signal out and see who bites. I'm in my late twenties, play bass & guitar and can produce a bit. Musical ability very much not an issue just so long as you're down to earth and fancy having a crack at being in a band.
