    He is quite underrated.

    Well, not underrated, just underdiscussed.

    None of his lines are hard, but they are all definitly groovin :p

    I've heard a few people mention him around here, but yeah, not enough. He is good, very good. I liked his earlier stuff but their latest album had some kick ass bass and tone. Good stuff.
     
  3. Somebody tell me his name! I talk about him way to much to not know the guys name and I am too lazy to look it up(and it doesnt say on the cake website).

    We are building a religion, we are building it bigger, we are widening the corridor, and adding more lanes, we are building a religion, a limited edition...

    Damiani is most excellent.:cool:
     
  9. And that's usually what is of importance when it comes to making brilliant basslines... Take Donald "Duck" Dunn for instance; He created very simple basslines which however were groovin'... And he is one of my favourites...

    Is that a pic of STP?

    Schecter bass + cowboy hat + Scott Weiland looking rockstar = probably Rob DeLeo

    I always thought it would be cool if there was a Cake tribute band called "Frosting" and their motto would be "Covering cake since (the year the band established)."
     
  16. note to self: learn Cake songs....
