Division Updates On Search For Bassist

Washington, DC metal band Division has posted an update about their search for a new bassist, making it quite an entertaining read and sharing some anecdotes from the experience. Here's an excerpt:

"Ah, the hunt for a new musician to play in your band. It’s like mixing a job interview with a personals ad. Not only are you looking for someone who can play the song, has “pro gear and a pro attitude”, doesn’t have any substance abuse problems (short of drinking way too much on road trips), can afford rent, and has a car to get them to and from practice/gigs, but you’re looking for someone you can see yourself hanging out with on a regular basis. After all, we’re certainly not in this for the money (see the “isn’t psychotic” part). A tall order, for sure.

"So, imagine, if you will, what you expose yourself to when you put your e-mail address and phone number on little tear-off strips of paper in music stores, and “specific and concise” ads online and on newsprint. Before anything else happens, you get invited to invest in new businesses, tour Europe, help someone’s uncle in Nigeria, enhance your, um, manhood, and take part in exciting and invigorating new opportunities to form grassroots campaigns promoting grassroots campaigns in the areas where grassroots campaigns occur. Just the thing my wallet and manhood needs! However, no one prepares you for the cold, hard fact that no one is going to actually respond to the substance of your ad for, oh, about a month.

"Then the phone starts ringing."
