    Hi everyone!

    The Doppler Shift are looking for a bassist to replace myself on bass, as I wish to move over to guitar. We have around five rough songs that need a bit more work on them, but essentially they are done.

    I'm basically the guy who's put everything together so far. I got us a drummer, and I've written riffs and songs that we've then took into the studio. I like the idea of a democratic band, but realistically, there should be someone who kind of directs the whole thing, so I've kind of assumed that role over the past four months or so. I don't wish to dictate though, I want the band to be an exercise in group communication and group creativity.

    Influences: Tool, ISIS, Pelican, QOTSA, Kyuss, Black Sabbath, Godspeed You Black Emperor, The Mars Volta. Tons more influences I'm sure, but for the sake of being concise, these will have to do.

    We're interested in rocking riffs that can pound into someone's head, atmosphere, and kick ass tunes that we believe in.

    So anyway, we are seeking a bassist then who can not only bring their own ideas to the table, but also listen to everyone else and slot themselves in nice and snug if the situation calls for it. We rehearse at Downs Sounds studios in New Southgate, not too far from Arnos Grove tube station. Basically that is something we need to stick with, as our drummer comes from Hemel Hampstead and it is the easiest place for him to get to.

    We are committed to the band. We all really love music and we want to see where we can take this project. We're primarily interested in writing and recording, and gigging later on when we're all comfortable with the songs.

    We have some rough recordings of track ideas, but nothing that is set in stone, and they sound quite rough, so don't judge them too harshly. Here are a few:

    If this seems like something you'd like to get involved with, get back to me and we can sort it out!
