Talent wanted for talentless no hopers folk/country band

Postby PertHJ » Mon Feb 28, 2011 6:57 pm

Either someone talented that can bring us fame + fortune, or anyone really that is shit enough to be interested in playing with us. Mainly interested in someone that plays guitar and someone that can sing - preferably at same time. But we might be interested in other folkey type instrument players.

Thus far - Me (banjo), Joe (mandolin), Aleks (double bass).

Have had a couple of unproductive jams over the last few years but might be interested in making something of this. But really will just be having some beers and talk shit while playing some songs.

Yeah, that's what I'm going for (although can't speak for others) - especially TBT. Also OCMS, Hackensaw Boys, yonder mountain string band kind of stuff. Although probably chuck some more irish shit up in there as well, and some sweet punk covers too.
As we (me and joe at least) are fairly amateur, couldn't really say how it will tun out.

If you take influence from OCMS then hurry up and start jamming and play a show so I can come and get drunk and yell at yous. More Hank III and Bob Wayne influenced and less Irish please haha ;) actually I don't care this potential band sounds awesome!

I wanted to go to the Gunslingers Ball 3 this weekend but I'm busy. If anyone goes tell me how it was, please.

Heh, darker moden country is ok and hank III is ok, but there is a very very fine line between cool and fucking corny lame drivel. A lot of those sort of bands I've heard, including Hank III, often cross that line.

singing about how evil/satanic/bad ass/alcoholic etc you/something else is gets old real fast. Pretty much why I can't stand psychobilly most of the time too.


imo of course :wink:

I dunno, I think bands that sing about real shit have a lot more integrity than bands that sing about hokey shit. Plus as far as real 'dark' shit goes, there's nothing darker than stuff that actually happens in real life (ie stuff that cash sings about or songs off Tennessee pusher -albeit it a sub-par OCMS album), instead of make believe crap like 'satan' or talking up substance abuse (except maybe songs like cocaine blues).

I don't really mean lyric content when I say 'dark' country, talking more bout the style :P. But then again, I obviously have a taste for the nasty and trashy stuff when it comes to lyrics too :P

Oh yeah the actual music played by those bands is fine, it's the lyrical content that makes me cringe

"Working real hard aint hard to do
When you got you a lotta money coming to you
But I aint got a dime so I'll just sit here
Even though I'm broke I got a 6-pack of beer."

"Hank's givin me those high times
Cash is gonna sing it low
And I'm here gettin wasted
With all my country heroes."

Etc etc. Don't think many of Hank III's lyrics focus on his evil badassery really.
