Through the wine-spills and cheese-stains, we’ll be playing a fortified, amplified, award-winning set. We apologize from the bottom of our crooked hearts for the impromptu notice. See our Upcoming Shows section for more info.
Lime Colony, CA 95688
Dear Subscribers and Website Readers,
Lime Colony is looking for a kick-butt bass player (upright or electric, preferably both) willing to add a bit of low-end to our recordings and occasional live performances. After some great live shows and numerous open mic appearances (namely at the Hotel Utah), we’re now in the middle of recording an LP’s worth of new music (approximately) to be self-released. We usually get together about once a week (Thurs or Sat nights) in the city. If you love music, and are good at playing it on a bass, then we’d love to hear from you.
To summarize what we’re looking for:
- a talented bass player and musician
- upright or electric or both, preferably
- sense of humor doesn’t hurt
- ability to sing back-up vocals a plus
To further summarize what you should and should not expect, please see below.
What you should expect:
- a friendly environment
- fairly informal but focused rehearsals and recording sessions, when schedules line up
- jokes (usually bad/not-funny)
- open-minded and good-humored bandmates
- to play semi-folk-inspired music, that is sometimes quiet, but sometimes tries to rock pretty hard
What you should NOT expect:
- a strict or frequent practice/rehearsal/recording schedule (see first paragraph)
- many, many gigs every month
- scary monsters
For everyone who visits limecolony.com, and even for those who don’t: we have posted a brand new, never before heard in public, song. We’re calling it ”Houdini,” and you can listen to it at our Myspace page, or our Facebook page. This song was written and performed by Earl K., engineered by Tim G., and features Siv Lie on violin, and it will appear on our upcoming full-length, which will be available later this year.
Please click on over and give it a listen. We hope you like it.
See you soon,
…with synth. If you haven’t already, you can hear a new, futuristic version of the score we wrote for Tough Love. You can find it over at our page on Myspace, or over at our page on Facebook! We’re also ringing in the new year with words that are actually hyperlinks! Please enjoy.
Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in advance.
Lime Colony recently got to spend a little time in front of a much sturdier, sexier microphone than normal, and it turns out some of the material recorded may actually make its way onto the new album in some form. My vocals from that session certainly won’t, ravaged and devoured as the old chords were by a recent hot sauce drinking competition I held with myself.
Sometimes I just feel indestructable. And I like to test my limits.
As I was saying, Colin was off frolicking somewhere in Anaheim, CA, soaking wet. Our adjunct violinist was at a junction of anthropologists. Earl and I finally made our way over to the recording-room again, this time with the talented Mr. Wickens, Neumann in tow.
I’m going to stop typing now. The sunset I’m beholding is indescribably beautiful. I wish you could see it.
The voice of famed Lime Colony guitarist and singer Tim Garcia can be heard in the clip above. Though it may never air on television, you can see it ad nauseum here and at http://www.crashthesuperbowl.com/#/gallery/video/1875/.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. There’s a rumor going around that Lime Colony will be making some sort of appearance at Wine Styles in Vacaville, CA next week. November 7th, specifically. After dusk. Some have called it a kick-off to what promises to be an amazing Novemberfest 2008. All I can say is, leave your earplugs at home and bring a designated decanter, because you’ll be in for some serious winin’ and limin’. And rhymin’.
I made up that second to last verb, so don’t try to use it to sound smart or cultured. Friends and strangers alike will laugh in your face, and then where will you be?
Really, though. It ought to be a fine time.
