Here’s a theory: All guitarists want to be bass players. They down-tune, add additional strings, or employ octave generators to hit those chest-thumping notes. And yes, sometimes they can fill out the low end to the point where a bassist seems almost unnecessary, but it still sounds like something is missing. To be fair, all bass players want to be guitarists, though they have a better track record at filling the sonic space without their six-string allies. Look at Lightning Bolt, Big Business, Thrones, or the godfathers of bass-driven sludge punk: godheadSilo. Armed with a wall of amps and disproportionately large drums, the bass-and-drums duo fuzzed and howled through the 1990s, then disappeared at the close of the decade. Tonight they’re back, and you might as well pawn your guitars now. BRIAN COOK
