want to start a grungy/punk band to start playing shows in the area and try to take things as far as possible. just went to see dinosaur jr. last night, and, while i love their sound on albums, i thought they had their levels turned up way too high at their live show. their whole concept is to "play country at ear-splitting volume". But it just hurt my sensitive ears. anyhow, this whole experience gave me an epiphany that i want to play heavier, fast paced rock music, but at lower, appropriate volumes that allow the audience to really hear and appreciate the lyrics and melodies rather then drowning them out in a wall of sound. my influences are those in the title as well as others such as violent femmes, third eye blind, dead kennedys, black flag, alvvays, ajj, as well as local acts acne, petrov, and paint fumes, basically into a wide variety of alternative, punk and grunge. only have an acoustic right now but plan to purchase a bass or electric and amp very soon based off the needs of a potential band. ideally looking to play bass or rhythm and sing. if you are intrigued, write me with some of your influences as well as a brief description of what experience and equipment you have, and i will send my bandcamp so you can get a feel for my vocals and writing style. hoping to hear from some good-hearted, genuine people with similar tastes and establish real friendships through music.
