ABOUT

Hey, I'm Neil. 34, Taurus.

I've been playing rhythm guitar and bass and singing for almost 20 years. Certainly long enough to be better at all three than I am.

However, I am a pretty decent rhythm player and I sing okay (samples in Music).

If you genuinely know how to write songs and are putting together a crew, or if you just want to jam some melodic punk... I'd be a rad addition.

I'm cool and like normal stuff. I show up... on time. I believe in Practicing and Tuners and Joe Strummer. I'm not insane or a partier. I have a Honda Element for gear.

I like fly fishing and PS4 and Irvine Welsh books? I dunno what you're looking for here.

I'm a real Mackinaw Peach of a bandmate! :)

Influences

Pennywise, Bad Religion, NOFX, Green Day Blink 182, The Offspring, Rancid, Lagwagon, Social Distortion, Lucero, Frank Turner, Gaslight Anthem, Alkaline Trio, Dropkick Murphys (before dey got sooooffft, kid!), Hot Water Music...

You get the idea. The Warped Tour folks who now play acoustic? All their sh*t.

Also... the instrument stuff is going to say ADVANCED, but keep in mind... it's punk-advanced. I can keep up with Pennywise for days... but I'm not Hendrix. Don't get your hopes up.... too much.
