"Basically, I am looking to put together an original 5-piece band, heavily influenced by The Cure. I need a bassist, keyboard player, drummer and an additional guitarist. I'm based in Hertfordshire UK but can feasibly travel pretty much anywhere in the Herts/Beds/Bucks or North/Central London area for rehearsals.
Interested parties with a professional attitude (i.e. good communication skills, personal hygiene, self-sufficient in terms of transport etc.) please email james(dot)scott(at)netcel(dot)com or contact me via Twitter: @jamesajscott
Whilst I have a range of existing songs I'd love to develop or redevelop with like-minded musicians along with brand new material, examples of my previous work with other bands as songwriter, guitarist and vocalist can be found on soundcloud. The following songs are probably the most relevant to the type of vein in which I'd like to continue...
...but there's more available from the root level (http://soundcloud.com/jamesajscott) including my licensed cover of The Walk, and I hope to upload some demos of dancier tracks more in line with the vibe of Wrong Number and Freakshow soon, as well as some darker 'Prayers For Rain' inspired tracks.
I have a "day job" but have some good industry contacts and want to take this seriously - record and release an album and live shows to promote.
With best regards,
PS - I should add, it was listening to The Cure that made me want to become a musician in the first place, and it was seeing footage of this years' festival shows that has inspired to pursue the idea if putting a new band together now... Bananafishbones, Want, Wrong Number, Trust, all sounding amazing!"
