Synaesthesia in guitarist hunt

Synaesthesia are looking for a guitarist to stand in for Ollie Hannifan from next month until the end of the year.

He’ll be busy with a touring production of ABBA music Mamma Mia! but the band don’t want to stop work while he’s away.

The prog outfit explain: “We must stress this is a temporary position up until January 2015. You must be willing to travel to London for rehearsals and be an all-round player, happy to take on rhythm or lead parts.

“You need a good ear for picking up parts and happy to learn by ear, comfortable with complex time signatures, reliable, motivated and punctual – and have a good sense of humour.”

Those interested are asked to email

They’re gearing up for an appearance at this year’s Night Of The Prog festival in Germany, while continuing work on their second album. Earlier this week the band said: “We had our first rehearsal session without Ollie. Things are very different. We’re missing him!”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
