Calling All Bass Players

As many of you may already know, we said farewell to longtime bass player Levon recently. Don't worry though. Wes, JayTea and myself are not remotely ready to give up the ship just yet. We're actually just taking a few months to make some money, finish writing the new album, and try out some prospects for the vacant position.

And there's NO reason that YOU couldn't be one of those prospects! (As long as you're an amazing bass player with an unbelievable singing voice and the ability to learn music like Rain Man counts toothpicks.) But seriously folks, if you've ever wanted to see the country and you think you've got the chops, we're about as equal-opportunity as any employers you're likely to meet. If you know the songs, then you know there are some mighty big shoes to fill. So contact us via the website and give it a go-it could be the best decision you ever make.

Cheers and Happy Holidays from The Bastards!

What's up dudes. I'm a bassist from Daytona Beach if you're still looking for a bassist I'll give it a shot email me with details... I know all my key signatures and can read music so learning songs isn't an issue at all-thanks!!!-Giulio (JUJU)

Hey Guys. Huge fan! Unfortunately I am from Ukraine and currently staying in Cyprus. Never been to the states. But just in case I have a shot at this, I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself: I am, basically, a bassist. My main influences are Matt Freeman, Fat Mike, Mike Dirnt, Chris #2, Mike Herrera, Cone, Dee Dee Ramone. And, of course, I have some other minor influences. I play with a pick most of the time but also fingers when needed. I've played in some cover bands, as well as one original band. Currently playing in a cover band. I compose music and have an understanding of the piano. I also play guitar (Not great, since I mostly play on the bass, but powerchords are my thing, no problem with them at all). I sing (not that great of a singer, but apparently I'm good enough for the backing vocals, haha) and if it matters my top 5 favorite bands are the ramones, green day, rancid, NOFX and MxPx. Thanks for your time!

I'm definitely interested in auditioning for the band. Who can I talk to about setting up a time?
