    I just thought I'd post a couple of links of some cool bands that I enjoy that realize that you don't really need strings smaller than .45 gauge.

    MAN: Bassist w/ a kick drum and a lot on him chest.

    Lightning Bolt: Providence duo who are at risk of becoming bed fellows with the electroclash crowd.

    Lightning Bolt is the more interesting of the two, but MAN is really pissed, and in a way epitomizes the DIY spirit. He couldn't find any guys to make a band with, so he made up his own act.

    :D Hahahaha MAN is hilarious! That's the most distorted bass sound I've ever heard, even my ODB-3 can't Modify my sound THAT much!:D

    I just ordered his CD.
  4. Heh, my band PBM recorded at the same studio as MAN; we got a bunch of free buttons with that logo from his front page :D Never actually heard his stuff (I'll check out the MP3s later when I have more time), but the idea is certainly interesting.

    Later this month, he's playing at a titty bar a few blocks from my high school...drove past that place almost every day for four years, and I had no idea they ever had live music. I should check out that show! ;)

    Against Will, are you from the Detroit area?

    No, I go to school about and hour north of the city (NYC). Though I'm thinking of moving to Chicago sometime in the forseeable future.
