I do too, i wasn't generalizing about the whole movement, i like most britpop bands, it's just certain popular bands who do nothing but imitate a bands style, instead of doing their own thing... Thats my problem with Oasis, i own Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants, i dig it, but more or less they're The Beatles with Syd Barret-esque vocals, nothing more, plus liking some of their music dosent really change my opinion about Noel and Liam being the most arrogant/pretentious jerks to ever become involved in the music business... And if theres anything worse than Noel and Liam putting Oasis on the same level as The Beatles, it would be Oasis fans doing the same thing.

Yeah but I find it funny how you mention a band like Oasis at me rather than someone else I likesuch as Talking Heads or Can which would be a perfect example of what i`m saying where the progression is in the music and the songs rather than one individual member showing off.

The progression is in the music?

Did you not read the last line?

Would you like me to repeat it for the 6th or was it the 7th time?

And my... "who do I think is the best bassist" (seeing as I'm here) is, James Jamerson Motown Records 1959-1972.
He owned every song he ever played in, without dominating the tune.
Best bass player that ever lived. 1936-1983 RIP.

Ok Urban, but why should instruments only be reduced to a certain role?... Thats ridiculous, it demolishs all the potential a single instrument can have... You obviously love guitar driven music, but why is that good and bass driven music bad?... For some people, bass just sounds better than guitar, and for some bands, the role of guitar is reduced so bass can take over as the leading instrument, that isn't wanking at all, it isn't exactly showing off either... Its just changing the rules a little.

I thought Urban was saying that he didn't appreciate music where any of the musicians were showing off, rather than focussing on guiding the song along.

I think power trios is a good example of why bass is important and more than just filler. I infact love power trios mm Cream. Power trios is music in its simplest form, Melody, Countermelody, Bass, Drums, take anything out and you're left with crap.

The greatest bassist of all time is James Jamerson, anyone who disagrees is wrong.
