I Love Sublime

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by munkycharmz, Oct 11, 2001.

  1. Anyone else dig Sublime and Eric Wilson's bass? He is really the man who inspired me to practice after I saw him play with LBDAS. His greatest lines can't really be heard on Sublimes more popular stuff but on obscure (not really) cd's like SecondHand Smoke and 40 oz to Freedom and Even their live album... Anyone else like em?
  2. hez pretty good :) my band's guitarest loves them and im startin to get into them too. Date Rape is hard! ehe
    Point= Sublimes Good
  3. eric's the man who got me into bass.

    i have the most complete sublime cd collection on my town! :)

    just the three albums (40 oz to freedom, Robbin the hood and self titled) and Seond hand smoke

    Robbin the hood is a very rare album (house made) and has some of the best songs ever and also the bass sounds just perfect
  5. robbin isn't rare at all, it's still in print.

    i have:
    40 oz to freedom, on cd AND vinyl
    2nd hand smoke
    stand by your van (live)
    brad nowell acoustic
    bumS Lie (bootleg)
    contact buzz (bootleg)

    and the first LBDAS album if ya count that...

    i mean rare as IN MY TOWN :p
    they only sell the self titled here

    you guys in US have it too easy to find a cd

    LOL :D
  7. i LOVE sublime too.. Eric is the man (the s/t stuff isn't too amazingt though). His tone on Robbin the hood kicks booty. Anyone notice that on that album, the bass is VERY loud? I think it's the loudest bass I've heard on a CD.. and some of the softest guitar:D

    Eric Wilson was one of the people that inspired me to play bass(check my profile) his basslines while simple, are amazing in their own right. Amazing tone and approach to playing. They fit in perfectly with the music. He's a great role model for any bass player.

    Damn you Brad, you guys could've been great!:( The Wrong Way is, in my opinion, one of the best basslines ever.

    Very good in my opinion, nothing like that tone! The Wrong way is a good line, also Date Rape. For some reason the local station has been playing more Sublime lately. LBDA is good too.

    OMG someone else found out!

    i told about this some months ago (best recorded bass thread or something like that)

    the bass sounds VERY loud and cool... you actually don´t have to use the "Bass Boost" on your stereo :)

    listen to "Greatest hits", "Falling Idols" and "All you need" great work... i don[t know how they recorded the bass but surely i want that tone for me :D

    Bad Fish, great bass line, sounds so harmonic with the rest of the songs content, beautiful song:D
  13. Me too!

    I have been listening to Greatest hits the past few days, and was thinkin to myself how the bass rocked. One of my favorite songs is Santeria.

    R.I.P Brad Nowell:(
  14. call me crazy, but i always thought the bass was TOO loud on that album.

    yeah, i know, i'm a disgrace to the bass playing community...
  15. We all have hetrobass tendencies at some times, it's a perfectly normal feeling.;)

    I think Second Hand Smoke has some awesome bass playing. I just got LBDAS Wonders of the World. Definitely picks up on the groove of Second Hand nice mix of music styles.
