Faith No More, Kings Of Leon, any number of bands currently rocking stages near you—all of these will cite the bass playing of Peter Hook as an influence. His haunting, high-register work in Joy Division and New Order in the Eighties and Nineties, both outfits ultimately doomed in various ways, has made him nothing less than an icon. Now leading his own band, and executing major celebratory events year on year that remind us exactly of the remarkable things that he’s done with his life, Hooky welcomes us into his world in this issue for a wide-open chat. Read and learn—we certainly did. We also sit down with a wide range of other stellar bassists, from established celebs such as Troy Sanders of Mastodon and the great Bobby Vega, via alternative…

NEW ALBUM Jeff Hughell, Sleep Deprivation (2019) Insane levels of bass mastery from Six Feet Under’s seven-string maestro. Put aside half an hour for stunned silence after listening. OLD ALBUM Steve Lawson and Michael Manring, Language Is A Music (2012) Available from the boy Lawson’s website, this feast of duelling fretless basses is an object lesson in musical telepathy. REALLY OLD ALBUM Johann Sebastian Bach, St. Matthew Passion (1727) The best bass in history was the late JS Bach’s left hand. Luckily, it’s available on modern wax cylinder, and possibly even 78rpm LP.…

NO TREBLE KEVIN JOHNSON What can the internet do for bass players? One of the greatest things about the internet is the proliferation of educational resources, and as bassists, we now have tons of access to lessons and music that was once hard to find. Those two aspects come together in the beauty of isolated bass videos, which let you hear your heroes in their rawest form to analyze their playing. Now you can more easily discern more difficult passages, pick up on techniques, or find that you’ve been playing your favorite bass line incorrectly your entire life. No Treble re-shared its top 10 isolated bass clips as part of our tenth anniversary celebrations. The most viewed was a spine-tingling version of Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ featuring only the singer’s vocals and James…
