Yes friends, I have joined a band. An already established band. A radio friendly band. A band that plays in 4/4. A band that I will be doing nothing but play bass for. Yes, I am selling out/laying down/sucking up to the man. Since there is already a clearcut leader in the band, I'm not sure how much creative input I am going to have. They've indicated that they are wanting for me to pull them in some different directions, but considering that they already may have some commercial appeal, I don't think they would want my full input; I'd ruin them. So essentially I will be going in, playing bass, and that's it. It's an oddly liberating feeling. I don't have to spend countless hours programming drums! Glee! I don't have to setup click tracks in 17/8! Joy! I don't have to annoy my neighbors screaming into a microphone! Happy! I don't have to decide whether the guitar sounds better with a ring modulator or an envelope filter! Bliss! Best part is, they like distorted bass, which I will gladly supply via my rig that I am dedicating to this project: BassTriaxis, Strategy 500, 1x15, 1x18. You want low end, you got lowend. Prepare to poop.
