    Hey everyone. To start off, I'm not a big ska fan, but this band stands out to me. I know "Beer" was one of the first songs I learned when I picked up a bass, and I think their bassist's lines have been perfectly fit for their songs. Just out of curiousity though, what do you all think of him overall (talent-wise and in writing)? I have never heard another bassist comment on him before, nor have I heard him mentioned so I'm just curious...
     
  2. im not a ska fan either but that bass player can play, man. he fills in a lot when the other guy is busy playing the up beats on the guitar.
     
  3. Matt Wong rules. I think I started playing bass just because of him and Eric Wilson from Sublime. He is a huge part of the bands sound. I saw him in April and he kicked ass live too.
