Newbie (1/14)


Total Watts

  1. Album choice seconded, and not forgetting “Let’s Go!”
  2. I've dithered for months on this one. I was worried that their songs gave a quick hit, but no long-lasting effect, if you know what I mean. My recents: Amyl and the Sniffers (vinyl) Sleaford Mods - Divide and Exit (vinyl) Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland 2010 reissue (vinyl)
  3. Yes!! I wondered when Rockbitch were going to get a mention. Saw them at Blackwood Miners many years ago. At one point when they were encouraging hecklers, some (male) fool shouted “get your tits out”. He might have been joking I suppose.
  4. These albums signified the end for each of these bands. Bleach bass was much more inventive, Uplift Mofo/Mother’s Milk much funkier with egos intact, Ultramega OK a much more honest album.
  5. Totally with you on this, Cliff Burton and Steve Harris, plus Dave Ellefson were inspiring. It felt like they were taking on the guitarists at their own game. “Peace sells...” - what an iconic bass intro.
  6. Dunno, I wait til Christmas and the wife buys them. It's an annual surprise.
  7. Not bass albums strictly, but the bassists were certainly a driving force in the bands that made these records: Rob Wright (NoMeansNo), Mike Watt (Minutemen), David Wm. Sims (Jesus Lizard). It was a revelation when I found this stuff - bass mags at the time only seemed to go on about Stanley Clarke or Jaco Pastorious. I know they're great players and all, but their smooth waffle meant nothing to me (and to be honest, it still doesn't). I did however eventually find Charles Mingus, and that felt good.

    Okay here I am. Arrived via double bass searching. Born in Essex, bred in Boston (Lincolnshire), living in Southsea/Portsmouth. Playing a mid-1990s Fender Precision for the past 25 years, Ampeg amplification. I'm rubbish at the technical details, which is hard when you meet another guitarist. Is that enough?
