I think Jareds bass should be turned up however.

Seconded. After repeated listenings to the Big Business discogoraphy, Jared's bass is too effing good to stay quiet.

It's too quiet on Mind the Drift too.

he should play a different sounding bass too. the jazz bass to me sounds shitty with alot of distortion. a p-bass has always sounded great with the melvins.

Yep.  Jazz pickups just don't have that grab-you-in-the-balls growl that the P-Bass' humbucker dishes out.  Part of that is pickup placement too.  On a Jazz you have to crank the neck pickup and just barely dial in the bridge pickup to add some definition.  The P just hits that sweet spot automatically.

Here's an idea, let Buzz & Co. do the driving.

I've had a fender p-bass for years, and with the right pedal and amp...good lord does it have presence. I'm taking about watching the airwaves vibrate in front of you presence.

Of course, it could be that he's focusing more on harmonizing and complex lyrics, as opposed to a larger bass presence. Also, with the addition of Toshi, others are allowed to shine whereas before he could take center stage (along side Cody, so half-center in this case).

Yep.  A year and a half since NWB was released.  It's really gonna be hard to wait until summer to hear this.  Wonder how long it will be until some leaks start showing up online.  I'm guessing June.
