Yeah, its quite a lot of bands it going to be a real challenge to pick out just a few songs from a few albums from. So a “3 from 6 from 1” is a nice idea. If no one else wants to start it, I do it some day soon.
This list contains a band with many sides, and that a lot of people either love or hate. I have tried to select tunes where the band stick to the most straightforward rock music they offer. Though it always end with a few progressive tunes from Primus for me. Still good rock music.
I first got into it while I was learning to play bass. So I just sat there in awe of Les Claypool. I've always enjoyed they use the bass for the riffs, rather than just guitar with the bass in the background. And it's just sort of gone from there for me
I figured out that lots of my current favorite musicians didn't release more than 1 or 2 albums.. But I was listening to Bonobo again this day (after a while) and decided to choose him for my first 3-3-1 playlist 🙂
