Bass is the Place

Some of my favorite bass players...who happen to be women! From top to bottom: Britta Phillips from Dean & Britta,
Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Laura Ballance of Superchunk, and Tina Weymouth -formerly of the Talking Heads- pictured here with Debbie Harrie, and Joey Ramone (Tina is wearing the Skull-hat).
I'm going to play Bass in An Imaginary Band.
I promise I will post something wholly of my own making soon. My day-job (Psychiatric Nurse) has been taking up a lot of my time this week. XO- Jennifer


  1. so cool photos! how can they always look so cool? or is it really about the Bass..?
    in that case, i need one too;)

  2. hey jennifer! I can really well imagine you playing the bass!
    it would look similar to the women above!

  3. I like Kim Gordon, and I think Kim Deal of the Pixies is pretty cool too.

  4. Those are some badass female bass players! Latley I fell the need to relese my energy on a bass, but no bass in sight... I especially like Kim Gordon. If you would like, you can check out Jenny Lee Lindberg from Warpaint. I really like her playing. I recently published a video of them on my bolg ( She mentioned Tina Weymouth as her inspiraton.

    Until then, enjoy on your bass!
