    I've recently gotten into this Bass and Drum duo and man do they make a lot of sound for only two guys!

    Very nice overdriven bass tone that made be break out my distortion pedals again just to try to get his tone.

    For you fuzz rockers out there I whole heartedly suggest picking up a copy of their latest disc. It's on Stonerrock.com if you guys shop there.

    Bassist is very cool, the drums or vocals aren't my style.

    For people who like the music of DFA1979, but hate the singer, check out Big Business.

    though I do enjoy big business, I can't say they are really good subs for one another. You can barely tell big business is a duo.

    I saw death from above on conan, and max weinberg jumped on drums for the last part (!!!).
  4. Sounds like he overdubs like hell. They can't be avoided for the most part, but for me , the fewer the better.

    Ill try to check out Big Business, they sound cool.

    That is the reason I prefer them to every other duo out there. :D
