Bassist looking for ANOTHER BASSIST to do an original two-bass project!
Have been pipe-dreaming about this kind of project for years, and thought I'd finally put a call out there to other bassists and see what happens.
I want to use combinations of fretless, extended scale and multi-course basses, with lots of different effect pedals, and lots of different techniques (i.e. one bassist slaps 'n' pops with wah wah while the other solos with distortion and delay, or one plays harmonics or chords while the other grooves with some octave or flanger, that kind of thing, and we could trade-off on the lead bass duties!)
Dance, funk, electro, prog, metal... looking to explore ALL options! Just so long as dynamic and has groove. I have tons of ideas, but just need another bassist to bounce ideas off!
In a nutshell, I'm looking to do something similar to what Aussie three piece band Pre.Shrunk were doing in the late 90's and early 2000's (see link below for an idea).
If all goes well, let's get a drummer and maybe a singer onboard!
Looking for someone who is quite advanced in their playing, with live experience, good gear, own transport, live in or near Newcastle (I'm happy to travel to you too of course), and ultimately wanting to give something different a shot! All good if this is a side-project to your main band.
Shoot me a message on here or call on 0435 889 447.
