    Does anyone listen to Red Snapper? The bass playing is superb! ! ! Lots of feel and atmosphere! Check out "Prince Blimey". But, has anyone transcribed any, especially "Get Some Sleep Tiger"?
     
  2. I saw them at the Leeds festival this year and you're right about the bass playing, it was awesome, very funky. I didn't catch all their set, but the guy was using a double bass mostly and got a great tone from it.

    Go out now and buy "Prince Blimey" it will blow you away with his tone and funk! He always plays a dbl bass (apart from on 2 early tunes) and along with the drummer, they are a phenomenal rhythm section, combining Jazz, Jungle Music and Funk with ambient sound textures.
     
  4. You should have gone to Reading mate, they played there as well.
