Leicester drummer

Post by linalmeemow » Sat Aug 31, 2013 23:43

Hello!

First post, be gentle...

I play the drums, looking for a band. I've been playing for a while, started off playing indie pop when I was 16 in 1992 or so, then went to punk and hardcore but as I reach my late 30s I find myself drawn back. I'm looking for a band again and am hoping someone in the vicinity of sunny Leicester needs a drummer. As I said, I've been playing punk and hc for a while (bands in the vein of J Church, Jawbreaker, Discount - my old band can be heard here: https://myspace.com/thehppnng (I know, myspace!)) so the spikier end of indie would suit.

That said, I like old k bands, teenage fanclub, seaweed, lois maffeo, heavenly and associated bands etc etc. so I'd also be happy playing something in the vein of those bands.

If anyone wants a drummer with this sort of background please give me a shout.

Hello!

Just joined (would have joined earlier, but I only heard about this place recently, and then the membership approval somehow got diverted to my spam folder by Virginmedia. Grr). Are you still looking for a band to be in? We're based in Leicester. I was looking for a guitarist (and a keyboardist before that), but it seems most people (read "all people". Apparently) who play guitar here aren't into that "wussy Indie shit" (not directly quoting anyone. Juat an impression I get), and the keyboardists don't want to know unless it involves cabaret or jazz :p.

So, to cut a long story short I've decided to tackle the problem from another angle and move our current drummer to second guitar*. But only if we can find a suitable replacement.

Are you interested at all?

BTW, My band is called Frantic Drift. There are videos from our first show on YT.

Hope you remembered to tick the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box

*Obviously I'll ask her first

Yes, I have notifications turned on!

I'll take a look at the video when I get back from work. I'm doing a Dinosaur Jr cover band at the moment for the next Allstars gig at Firebug in May, but I'm still on the lookout for a "proper" band...
