    Heh, thought it might be fun to see if anyone else has some favorite bands that happen to have no bass player. My favorite band right now doesnt have one: Soulive. Allthough Neal Evans plays some awesome lines on his roland/B3. IMO, his left hand could be voted for bass player of the year hehehe.

    So lets hear em, whos your favorite band with no bass player?

    Ok ok, I know Im blaspheming here with this question hehe.

    In case anyone is interested in Soulive, here's a little preview:


    Maybe hearing that might lend to some agreements on the existance of such bands lol.

    Older Nine Inch Nails (downward spiral and before) will always hold a place with me. I've always wondered why Trent was so bass-phobic unless it was synth bassed . :eyebrow:

    +1 No contest IMO. Apocalyptica were kinda cool though :bag:

    The Doors was a good call, but they hired studio guys for records. My favorite band with no bass player is The Duo. You have to see these guys live - incredible! Two guys that sound like many more. Joe Russo plays drums like a possessed madman and Marco Benavente tickles and slams on the ivories with reckless abandon. I noticed they just changed their name to Organ and Drums...


    A must listen.

  19. You, my friend, are the king of this thread! It's about time someone else noticed that Fieldy was just mock-masturbating on his bass :) give that guy some drumsticks and a bottle of Jergens!

    Also, I like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the White Stripes, and there's a local band from my town called The Needies, which are basically what would come from throwing the White Stripes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Tenacious D into a blender (Guitar/vox and drums).
  20. Guys...I got a reality check for ya...fieldy does play bass, just a unique way ;) Give it up.
