Re: Loopers In Dallas/FTW
I'm a looper and also make Boomerang Phrase Samplers.
However, when it comes to looping, I'm only the star of my living room.
I do play in a band where the bass player uses a Rang on most of our tunes.
It's an original bluesy, swampy thing called the Rotten Rubber Band. Stymie's
bass is a short scale 6 string tuned like a guitar but 1 octave lower.
He also sings lead and plays harmonica. Tex, our percussionist, plays a
mix of trash cans and "real" instruments. I play guitar, and there is a
mad man, Kim Corbet, who plays trombone and melodica. If you look up gear
in the dictionary, there's a picture of Kim. We play at different
clubs around town.
Kim also has a band called Gouge. They consist of
Kim, who adds a synth to his other instruments, an electronic percussionist
and a guitarist. They use 2 Rangs and are very interesting. An incredible
amount of music comes out of these three guys. They are very avant garde,
so have a tough time getting booked.
