Just get the whole '..And out come the wolves' album by Rancid, Matt freeman has some tasty lines.
Nofx also have some good lines, check out 'The decline' 18 minutes! has a few pretty nice lines in aswell.
The Stranglers - Rattus Norvegicus or No More Heroes!
The whole albums, that is!
Harmony In My Head & Why Can't I Touch It - Buzzcocks
Bruce's UK Total Bass Guitar magazine(or whatever it's called) did a "50 Best Basslines of Punk" a couple years back...this issue did turn me onto Ian Drury & The Blockheads(one tune mentioned sounded Jaco-esque) & Japan(Karn's krazy angular fretless lines)-
Great grooves, though, I didn't really hear either as "Punk".
Ian Drury & The Blockheads were around at the same time as punk in the UK and their gigs were attended by the punk audience - I think Ian Dury himself, was adopted as an honorary punk, for his no-nonsense lyrics, with very English working-class sensibility and a lot of swearing!!
But his band were seasoned session pros who could play anything from Gene Vincent style rock and roll to Jaco-style funky R& B !
I remember going to a one of their gigs which was full of punks and you could see that Ian Dury was a bit worried, so he called mostly slower songs - but as soon as they played "Sweet Gene Vincent" , the punks started pogoing and pulled the house down!! Literally!! The stage started moving backwards and eventually the whole thing collapsed !
I dont know if you'd consider it punk or not, but Mike Watt with fIREHOSE has some great bass lines. Sophisticated Bitch is prolly my favorite.
Daryl Jennifer from the Bad Brains. Any early stuff, especially "I Against I."
London Calling. Entire album. 'Nuff said.
How much did Paul play on that recording?
Anyone else like myself who actually saw this band "Live" will tell you that Joe Strummer played the bass line for the Guns of Brixton because well.....Paul wasn't so great.
The Clash have great lines in general.
I'm pretty sure that isn't right at all. I've read Passion is a Fashion, ans according to everyone in that book, by the time The Clash started branching out into incorporating reggae, ska, etc. Paul was a good bassist. And of course, he basically learned to play bass by playing along to reggae records.
Dee Dee Ramone - "all downstrokes!"
Derf Scratch (and all the other bassists) in Fear
Fat Mike's always fun to listen to
Paul played that line, years later when singing, Joe sometimes played bass
London Calling is great study like Led Zep II for any new bassist
other great punk rock bassists
Costello's - thomas
Gang of Four
and of course Joy Division
All - "post-punk" or "New Wave"!
I'm with you on this one. I've recently dug out my old Bauhaus records and have decided I must get them on CD.
SNFU - the one voted most likely to succed
almost every song on that album has a great bass line.
the first living end album had some good lines as well
