Hallelujah- Antiskeptic




You know of Antiskeptic??



I thought I was the only one on this website that did..

On the topic of Antiskeptic, Selling Your Time and Dancing On The Inside are fairly bass-driven. Love those songs.

Also, most songs by Muse are fairly bass driven..

o_O I'll bet that was incredible. I saw them twice in QLD on their last tour.. They're bound to play together again though, they're too good not to.

Hysteria by Muse. I'd mention Primus but that's a little too obviouse.

Yeah i'm sure sooner or later they'll rejoin or something.Cool thing was about attending the gig was (apart from the actual show) that they had a professional recording of the gig a live album so to speak 30 mins after the gig obviously i have a copy . They're also coming out with a DVD of that final show too at some point.They've also got a dvd with all their film clips and memories and performances and such as well. Anyway here are some links:
Live cd: http://s46891.gridserver.com/concert/2008-09-20/Antiskeptic
Dvd and other stuff:http://www.fist2face.com.au/product.cfm?artist=Antiskeptic&product=Memoirs-Of-A-Common-Band&cat=Music-DVD&product_id=8183&PageNo=1&sort_seller_id=0&sort_cat_id=0&seller_id=395
/end fan rant

Anyway back to the actual topic . A lot of tool songs such as Sober and Prison sex are great bass driven songs.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?

I'm surprised noone has talked about Kai Eckhardt or Otiel Burbridge or like pretty much anyone who played with Herbie Hancock. Keller Williams is a beast too. Its kind of hard to pick out individual songs, and I know I mostly listed jazz players, but say the bass playing in a song like sweet emotion can compare to something like The Big Smack Down by Garaj Mahal, or really anything by garaj mahal.
