Country Funk Fusion ????? anyone

i really like the idea of some funky bass with a country twang to it or some country soundin bass with a funky slap

ive been working on my slappin for a while and i have built up sum speed and technique and kinda developed a country twang to some of the stuff ive been noddlin around with

was just curious if anyone knows any bands or bassist that might fall in this category, as i'd like to improve on it but have no country backround whatsoever.

closest thing that comes to my mind are a couple primus songs noteably lee van cleef, iowan gal, and a few others

Granted, there ain't a whole bunch of funk-ish country type stuff out there. I've actually been lookin.

Primus has "Ballad of Bodacious", while not really twangy, except for Les' voice, the lyrics are definitely "country". One of my favorite Primus songs.

Hmmm... Dixie Dregs? Gotta give them a listen again but they came to mind for a wild mixture of genres across the board...

Not sure if this is what you had in mind but may I recommend:

www.galacticcowboyorchestra.com

"The Blaze" may float your boat. Its on Youtube.

I've seen em a few times and they kill. Great folks too... Very fan friendly. Their bassist is a great player and a good guy. I'm talking these guys up to whoever I can.

Keith was Trisha Yearwood's bassist before that. He isn't in Nashville anymore though, he's sort of retired from touring. He still does sessions remotely though.

Yeah, I haven't seen much of him lately. Last time I saw his name on an album was with David Adam Byrnes.

Pre-Yearwood, he was with Tanya Tucker & then Waylon Jennings?
I used to see his "Fusion" band outta Richmond (Secrets) in local bars...$2 cover to have your mind blown was a good thing. Nothing like it since he left for Nashville.
Hot Apple Pie was one of his bands that had twang & Funk...

I cannot see any of the youtube links here...
The Flecktones are an obvious choice (I assume some of the links are their's).
Bela Fleck's solo albums (Tales From The Acoustic Planet)...some of Mark O'Connor's (ties into the aforementioned Dixie Dregs)...some of the early Col. Bruce Hampton & the ARU stuff touches on twang.

Kwesi, you beat me to it (sort of). First thing I thought of when I saw this thread was Little Feat - both of the tunes in Kwesi's link above are Little Feat tunes. They were the kings of funk/country/boogie nastiness. I don't need to give you any links. Just do a YouTube search. It's all there. The BEST!
