I came across this Canadian bass player covering In Human Form from Death via Bass Musician Magazine on Facebook about an hour ago. At the time of the vid, she’d been playing for about 2 years. Intrigued, I looked at her channel, and, lo and behold – Lack of Comprehension – my favorite Death song! Not only does she do an amazing job – she had only been playing for 1.5 years when she did it! Someone’s doing something right, and it isn’t me…
Here’s Ana Dujakovic, apparently from Serbia/Croatia and now residing in Canada and blowing my mind at how much can be accomplished with enough sweat and a healthy appreciation for Steve DiGiorgio.
So last week, wifey went shopping and got these tall brown cowboy boots. Somehow, this is for winter. Well, I decided to get something to keep myself warm too, only I did it a bit different. I went online and grabbed images of some of my favorite bass players and put them together into a picture on the computer. I then dug around and found a cool image of a bass cleff and ordered two shirts from SpreadShirt.com. I made 2 variations. The first one has Alex Webster, Jeroen Thesseling and Steve DiGiorgio on it. The 2nd has Cliff Burton, Steve Harris and Geezer Butler. The back of each is that Gigeresque bass clef.
Well, the shirts just came in. 🙂 They were apparently inspected by someone named Sydney. There were 5 or 6 different long-sleeves to pick from. I opted for the kind that looked like it would be wearable outside, and that looked like it could handle some additional layering underneath. Right now, pre-wash, I’m happy with them. Wifey’s going to be mad when I grab her after work this afternoon (yeah, she has a Saturday shift today). She also ordered some shirts from Indonesia and heard yesterday that it’ll take 14-21 days to arrive in the states. 😉 I think hers are Joy Division and The Smiths. They’re not customized like mine though. 😉
The Burning Ambulance review of the 2011 remastered reissue of Human (originally released in 1991), from Death is great for its complimentary historical references. Its the 20th anniversary release. I’ve actually been listening to this and the bonus stuff while I drive for the past 2 weeks. Wifey has gotten to really like Lack of Comprehension as well. RIP Chuck.

That’s Steve DiGiorgio on fretless bass, BTW.
I really like this cover. What makes it even cooler for me is Jeroen Paul Thesseling playing Steve DiGiorgio‘s stuff on bass. 😉 Oh, and RIP Chuck.
