Squarepusher: Just a Bass
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Hold 2008's Just a Souvenir against him if you will, but one thing that's not lackluster about Tom Jenkinson is his ability to put on a live performance. From bass guitars to a legendary cameo by Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, an evening with Squarepusher is usually a memorable one, so his announcement of a live album is more than welcome.
He'll release Solo Electric Bass 1 on August 17 via Warp. The album is a recording from his 2007 performance in Paris, where Jenkinson took the stage armed with a bass guitar, amplifier, and nothing else. Bring on the abstract sounds. Warp is pressing a limited number of copies, so throw that release date in the iCal.
