I have a homemade DVD of the Little Steven-sponsored Garage Fest that was held in NYC last summer. I am amused by the fact that so i havent once ID'd the bass player or his instrument right off the bat (havent watched the whole thing yet). What i mean is they all play basses that look like guitars, and a few of the players use picks. I see hollow body double cutaways, EBOs and other non-obvious four-stringers. Of course there are no closeups but it is cool the bands keep this vintage vibe. So far ive seen the Woggles, the Electric Prunes (!), Creation (wow), Richard and the Young Lions and Iggy and the Stooges. Im watching the Stooges and i'm thinking the guy with the Reverend bass is pretty cool and the one with SG is playing some wild leads, but it's an EBO and the other guy is playing guitar. It the good old days, the bass player did not carry around a huge boat oar, he looked like one of the guys.
