    I do like Matt Freeman a lot.

    Iffin ya do like NOFX, then I think that you'll really like Victims Family...

    And if you find that you like Victims Family, then I think you'll really like NoMeansNo...

    Rob Wright is my hero because what he's doin' seems easy... Until you try to play it...

    Go there now for power. Yee haw.
  4. Wow, Victim's Family. I remember seeing them years and years ago, late 80's I think. Very similar to Nomeansno, and I remember the bass player being pretty damn good. Never had any of their albums, though. They're still around, huh?

    Another great punk bassist, I think, is the guy who used to play for The Dwarves, Salt Peter, I think he called himself. Not a band for everyone's taste, but he played hard, fast and straightforward simple killer lines. I think Hewhocannotbenamed is playing bass for them now, since he returned from the dead.
