    mycomputerisonfire would be a hell of a name for a riff-repeating hardcore band.

    Influences include This Computer Kills, Please Inform The Captain This Is A Hijack, Blood Brothers, Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower, Black Eyes, Liars, etc.

    I'm not a great guitarist, but would love to do something along these lines.

    Ta. xo.

    Cos you're looking to put together a progressive band instead of the usual punk / indie.
    If you were looking to have a Rush DT kind of group it'd be extremely hard work to master time signature changes smoothly.


    Unfortunately, I really don't think that this type of band would be popular in Northern Ireland.
    Most gig goers like to hear something straight-foward and they don't appreciate music that's technical.

    It's a shame as these kinds of bands are big in other countries such as Japan, France and USA.
    I think it happens because most of the crowd are non-musicians and find well thought out instrumentation boring.

    I dunno... The likes of Tracer AMC are very popular.

    If its done right, I think they could do well.

    Looking forward to hearing you.

    yo yo yo mo fo. I've been a guitarist for almost 17 years' since i was 8, i write music in many different styles and i play a whole range of other instruments which include electric guitar, drums, mandolin, bass, harmonica, bouzouki, mandola all to a reasonable level (except for the guitars, im pretty @#%$ hot on those babies :evil
    ) and all i want to say is Don't listen to those remedial defeatists.

    Let them follow every other band down the slippery slope of unoriginals. Do what you believe is right

    And for what its worth, as long as you don't have a restrictive drummer, i think you might be on to something.

    Good luck
