WOW! Have you looked at CL ads looking for musicians lately????? I have never seen so many sub genres in my life! And what do they even mean? And why would you call yourself some of these names? And the band names they claim as their influences????? What? I see ads all the time that look something like this. "Doom/sludge/screamo/folk metal band looking for bass player. Our influences include Satan's Butthole, Your Mother's Chin Whiskers, Bloody Fuzzy Kittens, Purple Dookey, and Larry the Ax Murderer. Must be driven, committed, have your own car....." I recognize a few words, and it seems like the rest is in English, but I don't understand what they are saying at all. And what's really amazing is that many of these ads I see are in fairly rural areas near me. I promise you there is no market whatsoever for pretty much anything that ends with "core" or begins with "doom" or "sludge" around here. So where do they want to play? Now, I have never heard any of this music. I am not putting it down. I'm sure they are quite talented people and their fans are not idiots. I am clearly stating that I am fascinated and yet confused by all the sub genre names and band names that go along with them. Anyone else lost reading CL ads these days? Remember when you either played rock, country, jazz or pop? Even the sub genres back then made sense. You could bet that if you wren't a jazz fan, you probably wouldn't get into "fusion". And if you weren't a country fan, you weren't going to like Bluegrass. But even if I liked Metallica (and I did some years back), I have no idea if I would like doom core screamo sludge folk metal.
