    I'm pretty sure that Trevor plays a Europa. At least he did during the Bungle days.

    It's too bad that they have called it quits. They were an amazing band. The first Bungle album is absolute genius.

    Trevor played an Ibanez 4 string on the first Mr. Bungle album and a Alembic Europa on all the other ones. I also think he uses a fretless on the Disco Volante song, "Platypus" but I'm not sure. If it is a fretless, it might be his Ken Lawrence that he mentions on his website.

    It's really cool to see Trevor Dunn's name mentioned here. Can someone give me his web site? Thanks.

    It's good to see some other Trevor Dunn (and I'm assuming Bungle) fans.

    I was lucky enough to see those guys a bunch of times and they were always amazing.

    I think I'm the only person who likes Bungle (and various associations/offshoots like Secret Chiefs 3) but doesn't like the first album so much. Disco Volante is where it's at for me (California is great too.)

    Trevor's Alembic is a Europa 5 string, walnut top with reverse headstock. Its really heavy. For 'Platypus' and 'Dead Goon' he told me he used a "Peavey Fretless" which he's since sold. As an aside (since he's not on this album) the new Secret Chiefs 3 album "Book of Horizons" is one of my new favorite CD's of all time.

    I concur, I really like the songs that both Spruance and Dunn wrote in Bungle which I suppose is why I enjoy Trio Convulsant and Secret Chiefs so much.

    I haven't heard Bungle but I saw here in Italy the guy with John Zorn's Electric Masada ... great night! His tone was very solid and he was playing a P-bass ...
