The Musicians wanted thread!

Post by soft revolution » Fri Jan 18, 2008 12:44

Argh! I'm twiddling my musical thumbs here and there's loads of lovely music going on around me and I want to be part of it.

I want to get a side project up and running while my band are away. My last duo worked, so I've kind of got it in my head that I want to be part of a duo again - maybe where both musicians use the recorder/play back pedal thing which is increasingly being used by solo performers to create lush tweepop soundscapes.

Soo - does anyone fancy putting a little band together, preferably would enjoy using a variety of twee instruments in the same song. Drop me a PM if you're interested.
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

We need a pianist. Preferably able to sing backing vocals too, and ability to play other instruments a boon. We are..... I can never find it in myself to describe us except by listing a load of bands I like and probably painting a confusing picture. But you can listen to a little of what we're like here -> http://www.myspace.com/snowyband

But we're also more guitar based than that, and other stuff. Aaargh! Someone help me out here! Think somewhere between The Left Banke, Tindersticks, The Go-Betweens and The Pastels or something.

There.

I need a girl just to do some backing vocals on one or two songs... you don't have to be all that good, just willing to do it for nothing but the FAME that will surely come with it.

The chances of finding anyone local to do it are slim (I live in Chepstow, in South Wales but near Bristol), so maybe some kind of deal where I just send the files over and you'd add your bits and send them back would be interesting.

CAN YOU HELP US OUT??!!

Does anyone know any lady singers who may be willing to quickly learn some backing vocals for The School for our Latitude performance? They don't need a ticket for it.. We're playing on Sunday at 2pm.

And anyone who can play trumpet?

Really, we've had MONTHS to think of this but no, that just wouldn't have made sense would it..



they don't need to be from Cardiff, we could do it all by email then practice when we get there!

Please get in touch theschoolband@hotmail.com

Urgently seeking a pianist. It's not a 999 emergency, but it could bring on mild anxiety.

Ooh! If you're still asking in 6 months then I'd probably be interested. I'm trying to get a job in Fareham, which will mean leaving Glasgow and the band I'm in now.

I'm moving to Leeds within the month and looking for nice people to play with. I play bass, mediocre guitar and my singing voice is not entirely awful.

I have some old songs here http://www.myspace.com/iamdearrose" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - looking to do something folksy, I guess. :)

Hi - does anyone know any London trumpet players who might like to help out with some recording in October? Just for a couple of songs - it'll take ten minutes, max. :-)

Ian has since confessed he doesn't know a trumpet player - so we're still interested in finding one... Please send me a message if you are one!

Thanks, that's great. I think we may have actually found someone now (fingers crossed!), but if that falls through I'll ask Alison.
