Hah. Admittedly, yes. A bit. At least on record. They are (or can be?) an interesting live band. I’m not really a fan but I have seen them and they did some cool Sonic Youth-y shit; feedback jams and whatnot.

I use a down tuned guitar to F#F# as bass for my music at the moment - add white noise to that and you have liquid foken gold.

Slanted absolutely has fucking bass on it

“Songs About Drowning” and Evil have a guest bass player, and Charlie also plays bass on it.
But earlier albums like Ghost Mountain have no bass

I can see that. I got into them with Songs About Drowning and worked back from there, and that motherfucker had some bass on it. Thanks for clarifying.

At least some Half Japanese lineups haven't had a bass player. And if solo artists count, Johnny Dowd's backing bands have rarely if ever had a bassist.

I believe it. All trump came from a synth on “Kiss,” I’ll bet.

Anyway, that’s veering into other territory. Millions of songs have “no bass” in that sense. Artificial bass, or synthetic bass or whatever. Like, 90% of hip-hop songs, 99% of electronic songs.

I think this is more like a no bass *guitar* thing.

Yes, agreed. I got carried away after mentioning "Sister Ray", because it's pretty fuckin' amazing that that ("rock") song features no bass. And by the way man, have you got a dollar...
