I am a bass player, singer and songwriter and I am currently in a neo punk band called Assburgers with a guitarist - Matt Mawer and drummer - Stuart Lee doing some covers and developing a unique sound for our originals. My style is very much like John Entwhistle and Matt Freeman. I play predominately with walking basslines utilising modes, arpeggios, chords, octaves rather than just power notes, only where appropriate and in keeping with the harmony of the song. I love punk and ska punk and utilise alot of 16th and triplets in my style. This style coupled with drums and guitar allows our trio to create a very full and unique sound within the punk genre. Especially to Australian audiences. Ultimately it is about creating a sound and a style of music that excites us as musicians and hopefully be appreciated by others.
Rancid, nofx, the suicide machines, buck o nine, Op Ivy, the specials, the toasters, Less Than Jake and Ska P. Matt Freeman and John Entwhistle. Although I am open to most music and styles for influence.
