Wanna move to Des Moines?

Here at the Lonely Note, we try not to put our focus on bands from just around our immediate area, as we do not wish to alienate viewers from other parts of the country (or world?). But I just couldn't help myself on this one, since the invitation is open to anyone.

Local band Angry Gods of the Radio is looking for a new guitarist. Why am I posting this? I happened to catch a little bit of a recent show of theirs at the House of Bricks and I liked how they sounded. If I had to describe their sound, it is good solid grinding guitars mixed with the solid vocals of Tim C. Thompson. They would probably fit somewhere between the category of riff-heavy rock and heavy metal. But don't take it from me, here is what they had to say about their sound:

"A murderous new sound has been created. A sound that paints a picture of a
muscle-car grinding its way, with every bit of horsepower it can muster, through a field of mud three feet deep. Dangerous enough to be taken seriously, yet beautiful enough to engage even the most finicky listener

So if you have a guitar and wish to join this cool band, be sure to contact them through (or by email at They have played a lot of clubs around the Des Moines area, and seem to have a pretty decent and very loyal following. Oh, and they seem like they like to have a good time, so be ready to party :-)

You can download (for free) two of their songs, "Iron Horse" and "The Exchange" here.
