Eyes Without a Bass

Since I don’t really play any musical instruments, I’ve always been fascinated by those who do. Many of the layers of a song are missed as we enjoy it, but the bass line to Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without a Face” is really cool, so I thought I’d seek out a guy playing just the bass part.

My Favorite MP Album

By -

I’m a big Monty Python fan, but as you might guess, being a good contrarian, I don’t really go for the standard classics like “Pet Shop” or “Ministry of Silly Walks” (good as they both are). I like the more obscure stuff. Below is my favorite album they ever did, which is almost entirely music or ditties. It’s brilliant, and I hope you like it.
