We are a two person band. Just bass and drums. We kind of created our own style of Funkish Punk. Or "pfunk". But the style isn't limited to punk or funk. We play whatever we feel like. We have a Hardcorish song, a 70's "happy song", and a few surf songs that are pretty random. We dont usually sing, at least not yet anyway. We havent been a band very long actually, we started in last March or April. Our songs are fast and we like to evolve them alot.
The song "I like Beans" was the first song we have ever written' or made up. SO if it sounds like crap thats kind of why.
We live in Chiang Mai Thailand. Jay or Joe Richard Franzen is american,and he plays drums and yells random stuff in the background from time to time. I am Leif Bauer and i'm half German half American, and i play bass. We sarted in April of 2003, because we both live in the same neighborhood and we wanted to play something for the talent show coming up at our school. SO we got together and made our first song ever, titled "i like beans". We played it at the talent show and suprisingly won. After that we made up a few more songs and played them at random places such as baquets and Socials.
Yes. The very first place we played live was at our school's talent show. We played "I like Beans" and it was the worst we ever played it. Strings broke and we were really nervous. But somehow we won the talent show. It was really fun, but freaky because it was the first time and we messed up so much. It was really cool though.
My main musical influence for playing bass is Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, hes the best bass player in the world and my hero. J's Main influence is Travis Barker of BLink-182. J listens to alot of Blink-182, Mock Orange, Sum 41, Modest Mouse, and the Used. I listen to alot of the Pixies(which are my favourite band of all time), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Coheed and Cambria, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Beep Beep, R.E.M, Placebo, radiohead, Mike Knott, and many others. I collect cd's and music and like almost everything but really repeditive stuff, or cheesy, or Poppy crap.
We dotn have very musch equipment, except a new multi effects bass petal, but we never used it for recoridng yet.
Our Mascot slash manager is a wooden peacock statue named Reggie. He is supa Cool. He is always totally out of contrtol and crazy.
