Just recently having started up a bass/vocals and drums/vocals duo together with an old drummer friend of mine I found this list of bands/duos just consisting of a bass player and a drummer interesting (there's a couple of extra bass and drums duos mentioned in the comment section of the linked thread) : Here's the list from the link above copy/pasted (there's a couple of extra bass and drums duos mentioned in the comment section of the thread linked to above that I added here at the bottom of the OP list) : DFA1979 - Dance punk, very abrasive and synthy Lightning Bolt - noise punk, very chaotic and LOUD Silent Lions - "Chill punk" (as described by the band), Hall & Oates stoner rock, very groovy yet raucous, know the bassist personally and is very chill Royal Blood - Alternative rock, classic blues-tinged rock, Page loves them (yes, THE Jimmy Page) Om - Rhythm section of Sleep + a [mediocre] singer, still doomy as all hell Bangladeafy! - Primus meets The Fall of Troy, great math rock, groovy as hell when it needs to be The Garden - Post-punk, two androgynous twin brothers making quirky tunes Ruins - Japanese math rock, still getting into them but liked what I've heard, kinda esoteric at times Whitey Houston - Mean punk rock, tongue-in-cheek social commentary, great groovin' riffs godheadSilo - Noise rock tinged with post-rock, kinda wandering at times, but great riffage Disciplina Kicme - Only heard one song off of the album, but it's also noisy and nice Planets - Mathier than Bangladeafy! rock, very solid HighKicks - Bass Black Keys with a better singer and rhythm section, classic vibe and FUZZ BASS Big Business - Not a duo anymore, and there is some guitar added on the album, but were originally just bass + drums, stoner rock heavy-hitters Geryon - Death metal, pretty sludgy but good riffage Also : - Ninja Academy - Math rock with occasional guest musicians. - Sabot - Math prog with a Ruins influence. - El Ten Eleven - Dance rock with mathy elements, bass player often uses a double neck bass/guitar, but sometimes just bass. - Cause for Effect - Jazzgrind. Either you dig it or you don't. - Japanther - Bell Witch - Clatter Via that list I discovered this band from Japan (sort of sounds like a Primus/Mr. Bungle/Captain Beefheart crossover/fusion : Anyone else here who play in a bass and drums duo? Mine is called "all I nil" and we do sort of progressive psychedelic stoner/doom rock. .
