What is it with the bass on some parts of the album?
You can tell Roy's playing style on tracks like Duke of Prunes and Status Back Baby but what about on Plastic People and America Drinks? It sounds more like a double bass - but like no other double bass that I have heard before.

Can any body elaborate on who is playing what? I know we did a similar thing with the drums a few years ago.
Is it John Balkin? It sounds almost slightly out of sync' even.

'Drum

PS - the original mono mix makes the bass sound even more strange on these 2 tracks.
