Hi, my name is Grant. I play Six sting bass (Pedulla MVP6) and sing in the Southampton band Toupé. We've just released our debut album, 'Alopecia', thru Hackpen Records and although they're doing a great job getting our stuff reviewed by the likes of Rock Sound and Kerrrang! We want to get more bass players on the Toupé train.

Y'see, we have two bass players and no guitarists. Bass. Bass. Drums. I play the six, Karl plays the four (with FX and everything) and we make music that's been compared to Primus, Zappa, Tool, The Presidents of the U.S.A., Mr Bungle and more. Here are some links to some reviews:

I hope you like it. We're trying to bring the bass back to the front of the band where it seems to have slipped from whilst also having a good time. We're touring the UK from Feb onwards. If you want us to play near you, get intouch on our website and join the mailing list.
