As some of you know I’m deeply into the P/flats sound at the moment not least because a lot of the new music I’m discovering features some tasty P action. 
 

Latest discovery is below. Phenomenal bass playing; tasteful, groovy, busy, sparse, it’s all there - and the rest of the band are fantastic. 
 

I normally avoid any albums/artists with ‘funk’ in the name as they tend to be anything but, but this is awesome.
Go on, give it a spin 🎧

Spotify did me a wrong. Typed in Scumfu... and was given this...

 

Actually not terrible if you can handle the heavier things in life. Reminds of early Between The Buried And Me with harsher vocals.

Thanks for posting this Ped - a new listen for me, and gold plated A1 stuff. Singer's phrasing reminds me of iamddb.

 Can't find the name of the bass player, but an absolute master of discreet glissando and ghost notes, and a great ad for the PJ sound, which I love.

Here's another track:

Exactly - I love those aspects of his playing. it inspired me to do this recording. For some reason I don't think there's anything quite as funky as a P bass gliss. I'm only recently getting used to them, as for some reason I find them much harder on round wound strings and have only been using flats for a few years in comparison

Well, surely they're harder on rounds ? - I know I'd certainly find them harder just because of the nature of the strings - coarse and edgy as opposed to smooth and silky. Mind you, seems some people refer to glissando when what they're actually doing is hammering on a semitone - slightly different effect IMHO.

You do a little gliss right at the end of your recording - excellent by the way! - and I can't work out whether you're using a sliding gliss or hammering. Sounds good either way !  🙂

PS Ernie Ball cobalts are my favourite flats 👍

I use Elixir rounds (which I love) but think the problem is actually that they’re too ‘slippery’ so I can’t get a grip as easily as I can on a flat with my pinkie finger, so that any ‘waggle’ gets pronounced. 
 

Thanks BTw that a waggly slide at the end!

Me neither, but it appears vndb is the bass player (you'd probably found this out already). Here's a link to his FB page https://www.facebook.com/VBNDmusic and a video of his band live in downtown Saskatoon.
