Marika Hodgson is on here as MBass. She's a brilliant bass player around Akld. Not sure whether she's still in NZ or has floated off overseas.

.Wendy Calder from WEllington band "The Spines" (mid 80s maybe) great bass player trained as classical violin I believe. Brilliant hit for them " Punch" (5/4) -great bassline. Used to have the EP but long lost. Was put out by Propeller records (or maybe it was JAYREM). She went on to electronica with "Pulsing" by Body Electric. electronica was death to bass huh? Let me know
anyone who has this a great number.

I've actually got a copy of "Pulsing" on a kiwi music compilation album with me at the moment. It's called "It's Bigger Than Both of Us".There could be some of our members on it.

There's one chick (Hannah Elise) who's pretty handy on the bass who plays for an Auckland band (but they do play outside of Aucks) called Hipstamatics. They do covers but spruce them up real nicely. I think she usually plays a P or a J. She's got a great feel.
