EPISODE 9: LES CLAYPOOL AND THE HOLY MACKEREL



It would be hard to justify a blog about ballsy bass tones without a shout out to Les Claypool.  Given that most people should have heard Primus, I'd like to share a lesser known album Claypool did - Highball with the Devil.  Other than a handful of guest appearances, all the instruments were played by the man himself.  Raw tones are abundant, full of grit and hoo-hah.  Very reminiscent of Primus' The Brown Album, both in compositional style and in aesthetics.  I dig it profusely.





Until next week, stay crispy.

EPISODE 10: IN THE KINGDOM OF KITSCH YOU WILL BE A MONSTER



Shining, from Norway, is a cool band.  Throughout their transformation from a weird avant-garde jazz band to a weird avant-garde metal band, they've used a whole plethora of real ugly bass sounds, perhaps culminated on Blackjazz with what might well be zipper noises.  The bass on this lesser-known album, In The Kingdom Of Kitsch You Will Be A Monster, is rattling, buzzy, and just plain dirty.





Enjoy!

Claypool is fun. Smile
The Norwegian band not so much. What's that other instrument, a kazoo, or a comb? LOL
