    Quite possibly the best band you've never heard.

    My uncle played me some of one of their CDs when i went to his house in Seattle last summer, and I was quite intrigued. Eventually, he sent me a CD of theirs and it is very good. I just got my second CD by them a few weeks ago.

    The band has two lineups:
    (old band):
    Paul Hinklin-bass
    Skerik(?)-sax
    Evan Schiller-drums

    (new band)
    Paul, Evan, and......Michael Manring!!

    The man himself (that is, man-thing) is involved with the band. They are that good.

    If you love good bass playing (and I know you do), you should pick up at least one cd. You won't be disappointed. (Bass Player reviewed their latest CD and described their -new- sound as "Les Claypool meets Percy Jones").

    Definitely some great stuff!

    I still think the bass intro to "Depth Charge" is some of the coolest I've ever heard.

    in 1998 I bough a '71 P-bass form bass Northwest, and was told it used to belong to Paul. (Not the one pictured in my avatar)
