Looking for like minded musicians to write, gig and sink a few beers with.
I'm not set on a genre - although I tend to listen to alternative music like rock, post rock, punk, electronica, hip hop, dub, a bit of metal - only a bit though.
I'm open to ideas from any musicians playing any instruments.
I've been playing in punk / rock / alternative bands with varying success for 15+ years. Most have been signed to independent record labels, one toured Europe extensively and had distribution deals in UK, Europe, USA and Japan.
Check out the bands on Spotify/Soundcloud for more audio:
Akuso (Pop Rock)
Phinius Gage (Melodic Punk)
DK (Skate Punk)
RTC (Heavy Rock)
