    their music is nice but it doesn't give me that "omg this is what i wanted to do!" thing. the vocalist has played bass in these recordings and is actually a guitarist and now they are looking for a permanent bass player. i am kinda unsure since am already playing with a band. so i ask ya all for help... what do you guys think?

    I can't see how you can do it. You have posted on a web forum how you feel, and it does not strike as that "omg" feeling. Invited in a round about way criticism of the material, and the bass playing of maybe one of the songwriters who wrote the lines. You are unsure of whether you should do it. Do this band justice and stay away and let them find someone who is like minded to what they want, and you find that "OMG" feeling band you deserve and not waste each other time.

  8. They sound good with good songs (except that third "Jam...didn't care for that one). The first song is really good, and the I like that 2nd song even more. Sounds killer. The singer's got a great voice.

    I think it's sort of funny how we musicians generally have no idea what we really sound like. Here's what the Ample Krack's myspace says in the "bio":

    Heh... At least from the three songs posted, there was nothing remotely 'funky.' They sound pretty much just like a straight ahead ballsy hard rock band with out too much "alternative," and certainly nothing "funky."

    Heh...

    Audition? Hell, I wouldn't even listen to them! :rolleyes:
     
  10. The first 30 seconds of track one was pretty good, but it got pretty creepy pretty quick after that....:help:
     
  11. thanks for the replies. i cant reply back to indivisual posts since my pc died and am posting from a library, but i really want to... maybe some time later. anyway i made upmy mind to not to audition with them. i was kinda unsure before because i really want to play as many gigs and dont want to miss out on any oppertunities but these guys dont have any gigs lined up so thats seals it for me

    Dude. OMG. That first song (Window Shopper) sounds like Soundgarden fronted by Bowie. My cuppa tea for sure. :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:

    *I* would audition for this band if I didn't live 7,692 miles away from them. That would make the rehearsal schedule pretty brutal, even if we only met once a week.
