    This thread can be a general discussion about noise rock/ noise punk and the bassists who drive those bands, but I'm also interested to hear from the members here who play in bands of this ilk.

    If your bands are influenced by Shellac, the Jesus Lizard, Uzeda, Unwound, Big Black, Scratch Acid, etc then please post links to your music and tell us about the gear you use to make it.

    This is my old band featuring a less bearded, fatter, fuller head of hair me. For fans of Jesus Lizard, Shellac, Faith No More, The VSS and a whole lot of other stuff. Gear used was always a GK 800RB an Ampeg 8x10, Gibson Grabber and a rotation of pedals. The only constant pedals were a Fuzzrocious Rat Tail a Whammy and a Muff Fuzz I made.

    My new band is a 3 piece and will be recording at the end of January and I am really stoked on it. Influenced by Unwound, Chavez, The Fall, Shellac, and all sorts of other stuff.

    Just started a project with a new guy. Influenced by The Jesus Lizard, Fugazi, and The Blood Brothers. I don't know how anyone around here feels about the Blood Brothers, but they're one of my all time favorites.

    I think we're going with the name Neon Black. I'll post something when we have more than little scratch tracks recorded.

    Currently playing a Squier Jazz bass with flatwounds through a Bass Big Muff Pi into a small but surprisingly loud (but not gig-worthy) Peavey 1x12. My main amp (currently being repaired) is a GK 1x15 that will soon be enhanced by a Fender Rumble 2x10. I have a Rusty Box and a smallsound/bigsound mini on the way soon. Right now, I use the Muff almost all the time with the tone and sustain both at 3 o clock and the bass boost switch on. Gives me some nice sharp edge, while retaining a decent amount of low end. A little wimpy for my needs though, so it will probably get replaced before too long. And I use Dunlop jazz iii picks only.

    Here is some noisy stuff, influenced by noisy stuff. I play bass VI on these (Epiphone EB6 Jr. Modded from EB0.) through Peavey Mark III Series and I think I had my TL 606 at this point (DIY). Some effects and a slide.

    Denver Max, I'm a Blood Brothers fan too. Saw them live a bunch of times, they always put on a good show.

    Not one our noisiest tune, but the Unwound/Chavez influence is in it. this is from our second ever show at some kids parents mansion.
    After the show somebody told me they thought we sounded like late 70s post punk mixed with 90s Matador Records. Seems cool to me.
