(UPDATED) Propagandhi Job Posting! Wanted: Guitarist/ Beaver Impersonator!
[UPDATE: holy fuck people, weve had over 400 inquiries about this in just 3 days, from all over the damn planet. amazing and daunting. this might take a while to get through, so please be patient. it seems like a lot of people are asking what it is were looking for specifically. i suppose most importantly wed like to see footage of folks playing, say, any two of the following songs for starters: Night Letters, Status Update, Duplicate Keys, Note to Self, Failed States. Specifically Beaves parts of course, including things like his tasty volume swells, his beautifully timed delays and deep-woods ambience flourishes (atmosphere is a huge part of Beave’s game. If you don’t got it, you better have something else wicked up your sleeveless). Its fine to play along to the record in your video, but wed like to hear your guitar loud and clear. if you can do a version without any backing music, that would be helpful too. If youre feeling really randy, throw in some of the backing vocals while youre at it for extra punk points. wed also like to see some live performance footage of you in other bands if applicable. maybe tell us a little about yourself and recount your previous live/ tour experience. that kind of stuff.
if this sounds like a lot of work, well welcome to our world mah-fah. this ain’t a fuckin pop punk band.
ps. if you can figure the songs out perfectly by ear, wow. good for you. i sure as hell couldnt! and if you cant either, well, sheet happens sells digital tabs of the records those songs are on and no, we dont expect anyone to actually buy our tabs as a prerequisite just an option if you need it and want to really make a most tubular impression! UPDATE COMPLETE. DISENGAGE.]
hey people! well, the day we have been in denial about for years has finally arrived and starting this September (2015), our beloved Beaver wont be able to join us on the road to melt faces with his 6 string stack attack anymore. it is a sad reality, but lets turn these frowns upside down and whip this into an exciting opportunity! Do you play guitar? Are you familiar with our music? Have you felt like youve been living in a dingbat-clown-idiot society since you were a little kid and always hoped your real parents from Rigel 7 would come rescue you? Well, then get at us ASAP! Women are strongly encouraged to apply!
