    Do you know any bands which have two bassists? :bassist: I don't, but think this idea might be cool.
    It's like having leading and rythm guitars, but in this case it's bass. One plays in fast strokes, and the second - more comlicated but slower riffs based on the same theme. Heh? :eyebrow:

    There's a Dallas-based punk band, Alex Can't Sleep, that has (or had, the page hasn't been updated in a long time) two bass players. Free mp3s, pics, etc. If you like horror punk with a sick sick sick sense of humor, it's not bad...But be forewarned, they do sing about necrophilia, murder, and all that stuff.

    Cop shoot Cop and Girls Against Boys come to mind.
  4. there is an aussie band called "pre shrunk". i think thats their name.

    One night, some of the players in our music community did a 30 piece gig one night. 4 bass players, kazzoo, percussions, horn section, two drummers, 2 guitars and others. One guy had 3 hats, one hat time sign, one hat key, one hat style, and that was the gig, very experimental, but alot of fun, zany is the word.

    Little Richard tours with 2 bass players...matter as a fact I just saw him 2 weeks ago and he was awesome!
    For being 72 and still being able to play like he was 20 is pretty cool to see.
