UK all-girl band MCQUEEN is seeking "a talented and inspiring female bassist." The group says, "Preferably, we want you to be over 21 years old (so you can drink in the USA!) but if you are younger and feel you have the talent and can prove it — we want to hear from you! You MUST BE experienced with both live performance and preferably recorded also. You will need to know your equipment and how to get a great sound out of an amp. We only want to hear from serious musicians who can fully commit to MCQUEEN. We don't want to hear from anyone with drug problems, alcohol problems, mental problems or attitude problems. We only want to hear from roadworthy, reliable professionals with a great sense of humour, who want to work hard but HAVE FUN doing it."

MCQUEEN in June entered a Virginia studio to begin pre-production for a new album, tentatively due in early 2009 via the Newcastle, UK-based independent rock label Demolition Records.
MCQUEEN recently tapped legendary U.S. rock A&R executive/manager Tom Zutaut — the man who is said to have signed and launched the careers of GUNS N' ROSES, MÖTLEY CRÜE and TESLA, among others — to be a part of the global MCQUEEN management team, working alongside UK's Seven Webster of 7pm Management.
MCQUEEN's debut album, "Break the Silence", was released last year on Demolition. The CD was helmed by up-and-coming producer Richie Kayvan in between a healthy touring schedule that's spanned the last two and a half years, with tracks being ferried to the U.S. to Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL, WEEZER, BAD RELIGION) to mix.
