WANTED: BASS PLAYER FOR POST-PUNK BAND. I, Batman, am seeking a bass player to join my band. Must be a fast learner to replace elderly manservant who is currently on four string. Alfred may be the bassist I deserve but he is not the one I need right now. He’s been listening to early Cure albums and I’m gravitating more towards Bauhaus.
Applicants must have flexible schedule. The life of Gotham’s watchful protector is a chaotic one. Must be available to rehearse weekdays at my subterranean lair. You’ll be free to bring your own influences to the table but you will not be free to shirk the mantle of justice which we must all shoulder when our time comes. “You either turn up for rehearsals or you live long enough to see yourself get replaced.” If you think it’s OK to ditch practise but still turn up for gigs you will be fired. Successful applicants will recognise that we are trapped between the ideals we reach for and the evil that tugs at our backs but will not be squeamish if some company wants to buy our song for an ad.
Own gear is not essential. I have a top-of-the-line rig set up in a purpose-built band cavern. Applicants must be super careful not to use anything black and/or bat-shaped because it’s probably a high-tech weapon. A van would be a bonus. The Batmobile wasn’t built for shifting gear. Auditions will be held at Wayne Manor from 6pm Monday
