Burnside Album Details

Gagan, Jon, Transit 2

When he decides to, Jon Gavan can climb out of the manhole, show you that the bass is a lot more than a juke thump in the night. Bass as lead -- this cat can lay it down like a black glove with chopped fingers on the throttle. Consider track 10. "Under Cover of Darkness". Dynamite groove, cybernetics. Like low contour flying in a chopper... following the canyons, following the coast. Bass as lead, something Jon Gagan excels at... and we ain't talkin' about a Jaco pedal either. In his autobio, Sting talks about "the cult of the bass". Cult? What could he mean? Listen to this track and you'll know. Album also features Ottmar Liebert. culturecourt.com
