    Mr. Bungle's founding bassist -- jazzy, funky, even a little surfy at times.

    Any thoughts? Anybody know his work?

    Recommended tracks from Mr. Bungle -
    Sleep II: Carry Stress in the Jaw
    Dead Goon
  2. He's one of my favorite bassist and songwriter. Totally underrated and genius.

    I'm mostly into Mr. Bungle and Fantomas but pretty much everything that he is involved in is gold, especially the Mr. Bungle albums. The fantomas stuff is also very good but it's more of a Mike Patton project.

    He has played every style and always play what's required and a bit more. I also find the songs he is credited for to be the best on the Mr. Bungle Albums.

    He also have what i consider to be a perfect tone.
  3. He's awesome.

    Complete madman. An amazingly talented/underrated bassist. (I hate calling people underrated).

    I recommend Trevor Dunn's Trio Convulsant for weird and heavy jazz. He plays an upright with this band.

    Does anyone know if it is true that he is Donald "Duck" Dunn's Son?
    I met him once. He was very nice. The Trio Convulsant show was great.
