I actually saw them, and they carried it off quite well live. It's got to be hard to keep two basses out of each other's way, but it worked. Seemed to be a matter of setting up for very distinct tones, and then playing mostly in separate registers.
If I'm not mistaken, Cop Shoot Cop had two bassists as well, although they had keyboards and horns as well. They're still a good example of "lead rhythm section" music.
