I don't play bass but my friend does and we where listening to Sir Psycho Sexy and wondering what effect (if any) is Flea using during the first half of the song or so to make it all funky sounding.

Be sure to wear your erection with pride whilst playing.

You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine

When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

i know back in the mothers milk/bssm era flea used a digitech filter as one of his main envelope filters too
