  1. ok, so i'm relatively familiar with dfa1979, and i've really gotten into om, what other bass and drum bands are out there that i should be aware of?

    I dunno if Morphine counts since there's a saxophone but you should check them out if you haven't.

    Pendulum is a live band that performs drum and bass. I dunno if that's the genre you're talking about, since I've never heard of bass and drum, so it could be completely different.
  4. just referring to bands with only a bassist and drummer, no specific genre. also came across the band clatter. interesting stuff.....thanks for the suggestions. i have become obsessed with om recently.

  5. Lightning bolt is zany!

    According to wikipedia, he tunes his bass CGDA(E) - with banjo strings for the high A (and high E when he uses a 5 string).
  6. yeah, they're zany. a little hyper for me, but still cool.
  7. Haha I certainly have to be in the right mood to listen to them, but their drummer is insane, and the bassist can also shred.
