Get Down into the Bassment with the Wangford Bass Combo! featuring Spanner 'Subwoofa' Robinson and Kevin 'KillaHertz' Foster on Twin Basses.
The Bass Combo is an experimental exploration of the reverberant lower depths of Country music.
What better way of navigating the dark underbelly of Country than with the thump and thud of twin bass guitars drilling their way through sad songs of lost love, breakups and betrayal, the malignant glue of relationships and the sticky end of the divorce court.
Singing songs from the Dark Side of life is so much better down in the shadowy sonic world below 150 Hertz. Hank Wangford, the grizzled Godfather of British alt. Country, is joined by two members of his band the Lost Cowboys. Kevin KillaHertz Foster, the Jaco Pastorius of Country music, is the bass player of the Lost Cowboys, ex- Doll by Doll and with his own combo Under The Influence. Spanner Subwoofa Robinson is the new Chanteuse with the Cowboys bringing her heaven sent harmonies to Hank’s songs. As a bass player she is an alumnus of the fine Americana band The Hallelujah Trails.
Together the three decided to explore Country from the bottom up, back to bass basics. The bass line in any song is mostly felt then forgotten and the Bass Combo seeks to home in on this unsung carrier of sad songs.
When misery’s that deep, for a Boombastic Country experience it must be the Wangford Bass Combo.
