(UPDATED) Propagandhi Job Posting! Wanted: Guitarist/ Beaver Impersonator!
[UPDATE: holy fuck people, we've 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 we're looking for specifically. i suppose most importantly we'd 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 Beave's 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). It's fine to play along to the record in your video, but we'd like to hear your guitar loud and clear. if you can do a version without any backing music, that would be helpful too. If you're feeling really randy, throw in some of the backing vocals while you're at it for extra punk points. we'd 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 couldn't! and if you can't either, well, sheet happens sells digital tabs of the records those songs are on and no, we don't 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 won't be able to join us on the road to melt faces with his 6 string stack attack anymore. it is a sad reality, but let's 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 you've 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!
