Bassists who steal the show/video's

Recommended Posts

I came across this funk cover of the Radiohead classic Creep the other day. Despite the band being excellent, and the singer a treat for the eyes, it's the bassist in this video who I couldn't take my eyes off.

Are there any videos others have seen where the bassist essentially steals the performance?

I am not sure if it’s the socks and sandals or the head nod tennis between him and keys I like best

I cannot remember his name but he crops up everywhere. With good reason.

The bassist and keyboard player look like they could be characters from 'The Big Bang Theory'. It reminds me of when I played at a mathematics conference at St Andrews University, a few years ago. There was a lot of sandal and sock action on the dance floor that night.

Scary Pockets are awesome! I lost a whole day when I found them on you tube. My personal favourite was the cover of Kate by Ben Folds, and Ben Folds actually joined them.

The poor bassist appears to be having some kind of medical episode, and the nasty keyboardist is taking the pith out of him.

The keys player is great, it's Jack Conte - you may recognise him from Pomlamoose. I reckon he's on a nice little earner now and can do music entirely for fun - I suspect his financial worries are taken care of considering he is the CEO and co-founder of Patreon. If you believe google, he's currently worth a cool $5 million.

I suspect Zender was challenging Jay a little bit too much in a certain Acid Jazz band.

You’ve obviously never seen me dance. Imagine a hippo that’s just been shot with a sedative. 😉

Excellent. Nice to see some players actually making the cash. I watched him working out how to make it happen as they built a following.

Sam Wilkes?

Yup. He is around Louis Cole as well as many others. Exceptionally nice player.

Here he is with Louis. Check out the throat thing at 1:10ish while you are here. Louis is in Machester on March the 12th and might well have Sam with him.

And again. There is a lot to like when Sam is involved.

The song “King For A Day” off Synkronized was aimed squarely at him if I believe what I’ve read...

Ah was going to interject with “Colin Greenwood” but then I realised it wasn’t Radiohead...
