hm.. maybe try an ad at a local music store like on a bulletin board... tell em about you and influences they should have to fit in...

that or try networking on myspace.

im sure you could find someone in your area there.

do you have any friends that play guitar? if so convince them to play bass in your band. if not, tell every musician friend you have about this problem. one of them is bound to know someone. also, you dont neccisarily need bass in punk. there are plenty of good two peice bands out the, my suggestion would be to detune your guitar so it locks in with the drums better. good luck.

3 things you could do

1. go w/o a bassist and be a duo
2. find a bassist
3. don't get a bassist, but get an other instrument(s) (i.e., keyboard)

You could just find another guitarist, if they're willing to play bass-ish parts and you can't find a bassist.

slap the guitar with your dick until it bleeds, then offer the blood to the first bassist you meet.

that should get them to join.

what makes you limited to the one school? make a poster at another school and at every music shop within 20-30 miles.

I've tried that, and my guitar never bled....

But to the topic starter, yeah, fliers. You may also want to go to local concerts and bars where live music is played and ask around.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.
