"Wash Me" - The beginning.
The band was founded in mid 2011 by Harry and Macca after meeting at their shitty part time job. They immediately hit it off and decide to have a jam..
They started writing songs and finding other musicians to complete the lineup.
After auditioning and trying other countless musicians, they came across 'da benjamin', Ben Taylor, who fit the drumming role perfectly. After a month or so of writing and rehearsing with two guitarists and a drummer, it was time to start playing shows.
With our setlist practiced and solid amongst the three of us, we called upon Daniel Waddingham at the time to fill in on bass duties. After a single rehearsal with Dan, it was clear that he fit in perfectly but wasn't interested in playing bass. Harry and Macca had briefly discussed the idea of incorporating three guitar parts into the music at the very beginning but decided it was unnecessary at that point. The decision was made to take Daniel on as the third and lead guitarist and continue our search for a permanent bass player..
We called in close friend, James Brown, to 'fill in' on bass for us at a show. We played, we rocked, it was perfect. After the show we asked James to join permanently as bassist. He approved.
It was all fine sailing from then on out. Solid rehearsals, writing new material and playing shows.
The 'fans' were getting impatient and we thought it was time to plan a solid release.
We saved up our monies every way possible and decided to call upon Ben Rechter from Pony Music to produce our CD.
It was a great experience and such a fun time recording the CD over the few months.
Through the ups and downs, highs and lows, we came out alright and we have this kickass CD "Wash Me" to show for it..
