Found this via random YouTube suggestion- I had heard of these guys and heard this well-crafted song when I was in high school but didn’t know who it was until now. Nice bass tone as well-


As the name is so common, I had to check if it's Louis Johnson on the bass, and of course it is.

Just having a relaxing Saturday morning with the Dead. A little 3 1/2 hour show.

You have got to be kidding me!

Hahaha yes!! Big Brown! An absolute beast of a bass, played by a beast of a player. So good. The melted chunk of brass for a tailpiece. Perfect.

The Wall of Sound days were insane. Check out the Wiki some time when you have a moment. Pretty cool stuff. The Dead were trying some really interesting things on the electronics front. Though, imagine Bill on drums, sitting under that cabinet. That very very heavy cabinet. Slightly scary.

"Phil Lesh's bass was piped through a quadraphonic encoder that sent signals from each of the four strings to a separate channel and set of speakers for each string."

Read it, fascinating stuff. e.g. the part about dual mics for amplifying voice without feedback. The main part starts with "After Stanley got out of prison in late 1972...". That's my kind of article, that's my kind of audio engineer. At some point I should see/hear the wall of sound as it is immortalized in the documentary.

I know... I said goodbye to most things metal. But this is so Bungle-esque Iluvit.

I like the obvious Patton-esque influence here... thanks for the discovering.

So yet again I demonstrate my penchant for the haunting and atmospheric with Thomas Dolby’s 2012 live version of One of Our Submarines-

George Constantinou again. He's playing a P bass. It works!
