RELATIVELY STRAIGHTFORWARD: “Loud, fun but not funny, NON-INDIE band in KC area is full of dudes that can’t sing. Please visit www.myspace.com/fiftybearsinafight and if interested, call (number) to see when/where it is that we practice. …. Please show up with some idea of what you’re doing with at least a couple of the songs, because pointless grabass is generally not encouraged during practice, and we aren’t going to ‘just like get high and hang out and like shoot the shit or something dude it’s all cool.’ We’ve got fucking child support to pay and our time is precious. …. Bonus points if singer is over 6 feet 7.5 inches in height, has access to an authentic viking helmet, and speaks fluent Italian. Double bonus points if you bring beer to practice. I like the pale, or just some High Life.”
SCARY: “1. It visits www.myspace.com/fiftybearsinafight… 2. It likes the music… 3. It writes lyrics and sings a song… 4. It emails email@example.com.. 5. It comes to our house to play with us… 6. Or else it gets the hose again.”
PARANOID: “Dissident rock band seeks vocalist to carry message of revolution and violence to desperate proles. Go to www.myspace.com/fiftybearsinafight, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and make sure you aren’t followed to practice. Bring duct tape, a passport, two weeks-worth of toilet paper, a large roll of aluminum foil, and $1000 in Mexican currency. Wear earmuffs or else they will hear your thoughts.”
DICKISH: “Be in our band….. Fuck you….. email@example.com ”
SCHIZO: “Ghost penis!…. www.myspace.com/fiftybearsinafight.”
