We’re back and glad to pick back up on our list of 80s new wave and punk players that impress us at BassCentral.com. We’ve covered Tina Weymouth and Mick Karn, now check out these bass players:
- Paul Gardiner –Paul Gardiner supplied the low end for all of Numan’s Tubeway Army albums, as well as his first three solo albums. You can hear a great example of his driving lines on the epic song “Metal” from The Pleasure Principle. Paul Gardiner died a drug-related death in 1984.
- David J – Have you ever put on a Bauhaus or a Love & Rockets album? Then you have heard the bass work of David J. He was influenced by a lot of dub and reggae music, which is apparent when you hear his work on the Bauhaus album Mask.
- Andy Shernoff – We haven’t forgotten about the punks! As the bass player for the Dictators, Andy Shernoff rocked hard and stead on songs like “Two Tub Man” from Go Girl Crazy. He later ended up working with Joey Ramone on some of his last recorded works.
