I'll dive straight in:

The kind of music I want to create is one with no bounds, and while that may sound cheesy but that truly is my intention - I'd like to go from jamming out raw garage style like The White Stripes to French techno/house like Daft Punk to being super lo-fi like Mac DeMarco to jamming out psychedelic tunes like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard to whatever - old and new artists (kind of like The Voidz in a way).

In the past I've been too focused on sounding and looking like one particular genre - stuff like The Strokes and Interpol, and while I still love those bands to death, I don't want to narrow myself down to only that anymore; my only condition is to have integrity in whatever is being made.

I have about 4-5 years of gigging experience, I either only sang or played rhythm guitar while singing. I'm not super fussed about the level of instrument or gigging experience that people have, although in saying that, I would prefer people who can actually play their respective instruments at the least at a moderate level. I would prefer vocals but would be down to share it with someone else and play guitar or bass as well.
What IS very important to me is the determination and commitment. I work 8-5, 5 days a week but I'm prepared to give it my all. I would like for other members to do the same, for them to practice, to communicate and to be down to just hang out because honestly, THAT, I believe, is equally or more important than being able to play, the ability to just be friends.

The main reason I wrote a frikkin essay here is because I'm tired of repeating myself on private messages and/or being different to what people hoped. Also, I'm tired of reading the most generic, bland, soulless descriptions over here (seriously put a bit more effort).

Lastly, a little bit about myself - I'm 24, work full time and am bored out of my mind and I love music. I don't want to be famous, I don't want to be known, I just want to create cool stuff, gig around, hang out with like minded people and be a part of a community and support one another (pretty cringe I know but it's the truth).

So if you can sing, play guitar, bass, keys, drums and/or whatever and you think you fit the criteria, save me please.
