i think its the bass on those albums that make them the pinnacle Cure albums.....i mean everything meshed so perfectly with those two albums

edit

i have never understood why he never seems to get mentioned in discussions like this....

edit 2

i must be that robert Smith really outshines the rest of them....which is a shame they are all very good at what they do

I'll tell you what song has a badass Simon Gallup bassline: "Fascination Street".



not only do I love the way he plays bass, but I love the hell out of his bass tone as well.

I'll play along too and jump on the Simon Gallup bandwagon ...



And I'll throw this in at random too...

I've been wanting to compile a little mp3 version of it for a long time.

^ Aww darn I almost put Fascination Street in my first post on this thread but then I decided I liked the other songs I posted better. I agree about Simon Gallup being underrated; I was listening to Disintegration earlier & noticed a lot of the songs having great basslines... Lullaby, Homesick, Pictures of You, etc. Nice call.

Oh & to whoever mentioned the Stone Roses - I Am the Ressurection (I can never spell that right) is another one off that album with a great bassline. (:

edit; Here's some more I like-

Radiohead - The National Anthem
Pixies - Hey
The Killers - Jenny Was a Friend of Mine
Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

Not that I know of, or at least not as that album.

A lot of the Fall's 80s stuff was very bass led so I would add Steve Hanley to the list of underrated bass players. In fact he's the only member of The Fall that Mark E Smith said that he regrets firing.
