Cris Cohen: Thanks to bassist Greg Hanna, who put this together.
Anthony "Tiny" Biuso: Plushie!
Cris Cohen: You guys played together in The Dickies. There is always that special, symbiotic relationship between the drummer and the bass player. What do you look for in a bass player? And why did things work so well between you and Greg?
Anthony "Tiny" Biuso: We came from the same modality, where you're like the skeleton key. You just have to get in, figure out the gig, and do the gig. Not overstep.
We both sang. We both were playing our asses off and singing like the Vienna Boys Choir on crack and helium. There's so many weird backup harmonies that we did. And that's always the coolest too, when you get a bass player that you sing with and that you can play with. You do have -- like you say -- that symbiotic relationship.
But really what I look for in a bass player, just someone who's just learned.
Drummers and bass players just really have to be able to lock in on so many different levels. So I'm just looking for someone that really knows music, loves music, and is a student of music.
