me and my cousin were thinking about starting a drum and bass band(possibly vocals as well? not sure though). what are some good Drum and Bass bands to draw influence from?
Arbor A410 Bass
Dinosaur 20 Watt Bass Amp
Line 6 Spider III 75 Watt
Squier Bullet

Excuse me sir, have you been thinking tonight?

Pendulum!

They're about the only (band?) drum and bass thing i know, and they use guitars, vocals etc etc.

Listen to blood sugar, amazing song, no proper singing vocals in it tho mind.

Drum and Bass is perhaps the most pointless genre I've ever heard. Honestly, I could put out an entire album by myself, playing both instrument simultaneously. That's just how stupidly pointless it is.

Good luck.

DFA 1979 is awesome. Of the songs ive heard, i think only one has some keys in it. And "I Disappear" by The Faint is pretty much just drum, bass, and vocals, with some keys and a few guitar fills in it.

Future Prophecies. Also Pitchshifter is a great DnB influenced band.

I really don't think there's too many (decent) drum and bass bands out there that are literally just drums and bass...

I love you.

Also, for good drum n' bass with vocals, try the songs Hold Your Colour and Granite by Pendulum.

Do you mean a band with just drums and bass or drum n bass?

If you mean the second one check out stuff like Venetian Snares, Squarepusher, Bong Ra, Ronnie Size, not entirely sure how drums and a bass doing drum n bass would sound, but I suppose if you've got a good enough drummer and a truck load of effects it could be interesting.

I love how half of UG is like 'Duhhh a band can't just have a drummer and a bassist'

That's not drum and bass, foo'!

But yeah, pendulum ftw!

HeLiX's 'track 08' is pretty DnB-ish.

That could be really cool if both the bassist and drummer are really good. Listen to Tool. Though they have a guitarist and singer as well, I think the bass and drums are so essential they could stand by themselves with a singer.

Try it!

hm, concord dawn maybe, pendulum gets you on the right track , TC is kickass too.

Well the TS did say 'me and my cousin' implying two people, for two instruments...
And did say and maybe vocals, implying a third person for vocals

On a website for guitarists, you can't blame us for assuming that's what was meant

Could you really? You do realise that what you said was stupid. Drum and Bass comprives of many layers, not just drums and bass.

To be fair TS didn't say wether he wanted to start a drum n bass band or a band with just drums and bass. He also hasn't said anything since his first comment, so I guess we will never know... Ah well

Im pretty sure pendulum are drum and bass and not scene techno lol. Its has no elements of techno at all. But I know what you mean the whole scene thing. 90% of people when they talk about drum and bass talk about pendulum. You ask a person who listens to Drum and Bass alot (yours truely) they will never talk about pendulum cuz they are pop drum and bass, like the prodigy were for rave.
