anyone else like JJ Burnel's playing with The Stranglers? I loved the P-bass with pick + distortion sound he got, especially on The Raven album (Baroque Bordello and Genetix being favourites). (I play fingerstyle only, but still sometimes go for a similar sound). La Folie's got great playing on it too, in fact the first four albums have all got great bass tones and playing on them. apparently he also played on an album by Fool's Dance when Simon Gallup (another favourite bassist of mine) left to rejoin The Cure.
