Men From San Diego is a project based on collaborations. Any artist takes saxophone samples performed by Thomas J and does something with them. Hopefully it will be interesting which directions people go in when they're all given the same starting point. If you are interested in taking part, simply download the sample/s you want, play with them, and send the finished product to me via yousendit.com to thomasjmarchant@hotmail.com, or upload them onto your soundclick page and let me know. Then I'll upload them. THANKS.
Why this name?
I have no idea, it was the first thing that came into my head when Soundclick asked me for my band name.
Do you play live?
I play sax for Div and the Divs, they're a ska/blues/punk band.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I just read Pilesar say that thanks to the internet, music is getting weirder and weirder and weirder. I reckon he's right.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would love to be a famous sax player, but only if I got to do what I wanted to do.
Band History:
Thomas J was born, and at the age of nine the twitchy young boy started playing the saxophone, despite heavy recommendation from the school not to. A year or two after hitting puberty, he started playing guitar, like several other boys that age. Even later than that, the twitchy teenager started dabbling in electronics. Now he's bored with dabbling in electronics, and has rediscovered the passion for the sax, after buying a Charlie Parker songbook. NOW HE NEEDS YOU TO HELP HIM.
Your influences?
Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Mosquito Death Squadron, Hal Russel's Chemical Feast, The Boom.
Equipment used:
A stereo condenser mic, soundforge.
