I dunno about a ska bassist but i reckon the best punk bassist is Chris no.2 in Anti-Flag. Some of his bass riffs are sick.....

Marcus Geard from the Slackers. He plays some good stuff.

I personally believe that matt freeman is overrated. His stuff is good, but its practically a formula. Play major scales really fast, add a few chromatic breaks, and try not to vomit while tim is singing.
