I'm James Wade (more commonly just "Wade") and here on UG known as Budwiser (or bud) I'm Currently in a band called Battery Powered which is fun, but unfortunately drawing to a close as some of the members are off to University, however My new band Ricky and the Pigeons looks set to be a success formed by me and the drummer of the previous band, along with our long time friend and roadie Ricky Moysey as bassist, and introductions to the world of musical performance to my Brother Tom "big G" Wade, and our new singer (who we met while drunk at a concert) Danni "Double D" Street. The new band is a little more serious than the old one, and more experimental, but make no mistake we're not up ourselves in any sense. We will still be doing the charity gigs and church festivals, (albeit with a toned down set) and we will still be up for a laugh with the people who are good enough to come see us.
I play Guitar, Saxophone, Violin (a little), and use equipment and ideas that came to me in dreams.
I love music, but more than that just sound, and I'd hate to be one of those people who says they like "a bit of everything really" so my musical tipple of choice is indie and underground music, and the stuff they play with adverts. however I will give most things a listen. NOT a metal Fan hence I do not design any metally logos for bands. amatur graphic designer (no real portfolio, check out my photobucket, work on the forums or take my word for it) one day i would like to be famous (what a pretentious jerk) but in the mean time, Product design looks more likely to be my future.
