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").
