players. It’s not a very common thing, but it was a thing with Ned’s Atomic Dustbin. They were part of a short-lived and obscure post-punk scene in the UK called “grebo,” which was a musical subculture found in the English Midlands for a while. But back to the two bass players thing: One guy played the melody lines up high on the fretboard, kind of like what Peter Hook did with New Order. The other guy played his bits low.
The result was that they sounded very different from what else was going on in 1991. This is Ned’s Atomic Dustbin from a 1991 record entitled God Fodder. It’s “Kill Your Television.”
