I'm Putting the Call Out.

I'm looking for a band. Wanna join?

I've found all the visual artists I've worked with over the past few years--all the covers of my solo albums--on the internet. Now, needing a band, I wonder if I put the call out here, if I'd find some musicians...?

Here's the ad I put up on my bulletin boards at Friendster and MySpace:

I'M LOOKIN' FOR MUSICIANS.

My next record will be out in the Spring, and I plan to tour like a fiend; so, I'm putting a new band together. (the guys I did the record with live in Minnesota, and the guys in New York I've been playing with are just so happening they don't have time for me!)

So--if you're a player who likes my scene and wants a gig--or you know someone who is, and does--

I need a drummer, an upright bass player, and an electric piano player (Rhodes, Wurlitzer). The sound, is, you know, my vibe--singer/songwriter-y, hiphop records circa 1991 ish, weirdness and simplicity in liberal doses. Not quite like Soul Coughing--less hardcore freaky--but not the stripped down Skittish thing, either.

Be in or near New York; don't be a weed addict. And be awesome!
