Mike thinks "basserageous" is the stupidest title for the podcast yet, but is it, really? There's a lot of competition. Anyway, this fortnight's gem looks at ECM albums where the bass is large and in charge, which provides opportunities to talk about ECM's aesthetics, how technological changes in the seventies allowed bass players new prominence, and Pat Metheny's hair. Mostly Pat Metheny's hair. Eberhard Weber – SILENT FEET; Gary Peacock – GUAMBA; Pat Metheny – BRIGHT SIZE LIFE; Gary Burton – EASY AS PIE; John Abercrombie – GATEWAY. Pop matters explores what happens when you find beatles in your green onions.
