Available Musicians R Us!
Name: Edward Grant

Previous band/musical experience: Two seperate half-hearted do-nothing unimagaintion-denial bands, for about four months apiece. Three years of high-school choir, one year of high-school band. One year of college with intention of majoring in music/English before deciding "No. It won't help." roughly 18 years of listening to music.
What kind of band you are looking for: Not necessarily looking for a full band right now, but at least somebody interested in songwriting, as opposed to what riffs one can play and rip off. Not too 'rock.' Possibly pianists/keyboardists/accordion players... not very interested in electric guitarists unless they're serious noise artists and/or true melodic geniuses. Maybe I'm too picky. Hmm.
Gear: Battered acoustic; cheap cheap Squier 5-string bass, cheaply defretted; Squier Strat, low E tuner removed; two human hands. No amps currently in working condition. But working on it.
Anything else you think we should know: Bored but not boring. Absurd at times, but usually at least irrational.
