Justin Chancellor from Tool. He's deadly.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhjG47gtMCo

Also I just discovered this band and the bass tone is sexy!

Seconding Mogwai.

However, if you want to make good post-rock it's has to be original, so don't try and imitate anyone else's playing style. In post-rock there's plenty of room for you to just be yourself.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Songs for our Father by Explosions in the Sky is one of the quintessential basslines to learn (it sounded amazing live when i saw them last year), and I'd have to say the bassline in Summer by Mogwai is also pretty awesome even though it's pretty simple.

Look into the Air - Explosions in the Sky is possibly one of my favourite bass parts ever.
Also, Glisoli - Sigur Ros, Black Path - Aereogramme, Like Herod - Mogwai...

God Is An Astronaut are fantastic (as are PT, but as mentioned earlier, they're not post-rock).
Mogwai does have good basslines, Maybeshewill's are fairly simple, Ratatat are a bit more electronic but damn that's good bass. This Will Destroy you are fairly standard tbh, but it's an example of post-rock bass in action. 65daysofstatic are immense in every way, last time I saw them live the basssist broke his E string, threw the bass to his tech across the stage, and caught a new one. BAMF.

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.
