This whole topic is surreal.

As you have stated in your initial post, you don't write songs, but you want Steven, a drummer, who most likely doesn't play a melodic instrument that you can write songs on, to post links to songs that "he's" written, that will fit in with songs that you are imagining.


Are you saying drummers cant write music? Thats a pretty arrogant perspective, its time to stop burping your worm. The right people for the band would be writing songs that basically reflect the sound I am imagining. From there I will be adding sublime and transformative bass lines that will make them in to amazing songs. I dont see anything strange about this.

No, I'm not saying drummers can't write music. I myself have written a few songs, and Rob Hirst from Midnight Oil wrote most of their material. What I am saying is that it is not that common for drummers to write songs, because not many of them play guitar or piano, or any other melodic instrument.

Plus I have been in a number of bands where the bass players have contributed songs, so I find it strange that you don't have any material to show anyone what you are trying to produce.

You seem incredibly arrogant to me, you have to stop flogging the flag pole.

My role in this band is to be leader, artistic director and to come up with transformative bass parts. Anyone can write songs, but not many can truly transform songs in to something amazing.

Yes we exchanged some private messages and your attitudes were amazingly egotistical and your responses were very brittle. You weren't open to bringing in a transformative bass player and natural band leader because your massive ego wouldn't allow it. As I said it's been incredibly tough to recruit people who are completely non egotistical.

I am all about the music, thats all that matters. Unfortunately for a lot of people all they want is to control and be praised well beyond their modest and replaceable contributions. Hands Off Your Glans is supposed to be different and a collective of like minded individuals that are lead by someone with a natural talent for leadership. The members should not be hung up with receiving praise for modest contributions such as writing songs. They understand that the process is collective and great songs aren't the result of "great songwriting" they are always underpinned by amazing bass lines.

Man you are whacking the walrus. You didnt spot anything about me, I made a great offer to you and you got totally egotistical.

On the point of great basslines underpinning great songs, I have to point out to you that McCartney was the only talented one.

You wont be missed. I'm a completely non egotistical bass player and band leader and I'm only looking for totally non egotistical members. You definitely don't fit the brief. "The Eel Wrestlers" are more your style, why not give them a call.
