THE LOW DOW N
Every month we tell you the bass-line we can't stop listening to
THIS MONTH:
'Bullet In The Head,
Bassist:
Tim Commerford
Album:
Rage Against The Machine
Ah, why is it that we can't all write
lines this simple, make a bazillion
dollars and retire laughing to the
Caribbean? Perhaps we're just not as
gifted as the great Tim Commerford,
Timmy C in Rage's early days, who
laid down this simple octave-of-E-plus-E-plus-two-string-chord with
insouciant ease back in 1992, when trousers and recording budgets
were similarly generous in dimensions. The song itself is all about
the enslavement of the masses by evil corporations and their satanic
advertising campaigns, but we were too busy being enslaved by that
unforgettable bass part.

A small car made by Vauxhall in the 80s
B
A star which explodes at half the speed of light

A cocktail from the planet Krypton

ERRATUM
In our last issue, we incorrectly credited the suppliers of the Phil
Jones M300 head and 12B cab: the correct credit should have read
'Supplied by Synergy Distribution and tested at the Great British
Bass Lounge'. The offending member of staff has been whipped and
then forced to restring all our basses. Apologies to all concerned.
