What better way of navigating the dark underbelly of Country than with the thump and thud of twin bass guitars drilling their way through sad songs of lost love, breakups and betrayal, the malignant glue of relationships and the sticky end of the divorce court. Singing songs from the Dark Side of life is so much better down in the shadowy sonic world below 150 Hertz. Hank Wangford, the grizzled Godfather of British alt. Country, is joined by two bass players: Kevin KillaHertz Foster, the Jaco Pastorius of Country music and ex-Doll by Doll is the bass player of the Lost Cowboys. Spanner Subwoofa Robinson the new Chanteuse with the Cowboys and ex-bassiste of The Hallelujah Trails brings her heaven sent harmonies to Hank's songs. Together the three explore Country from the bottom up, back to bass basics. The bass line in any song is mostly felt then forgotten and the Bass Combo seeks to home in on this unsung carrier of sad songs.
