Bass player required. Up and running band, ready to gig with a set of original material - already written but input welcome. Original bass player left for the navy. Punk/glam/rock style. We are all fairly ancient and very friendly and have lives outside the band. We need someone with own gear, transport etc. but more importantly you’d be in it for the laugh and the crack rather than the money. Check out some rough tracks on FB or Reverbnation sites for Buzz-Bomb Angels to get an idea. If you’re a lapsed or more mature punk or metal type and you feel a second flush of youth coming on this is your gig!

Contact Gary on 0776 5588915 to discuss further.
