Australian girls with bass guitars – is there something in the water here?

August 22, 2009

I’ve noticed that the last three Songs of the day were all by bands containing female bass players.

I’m beginning to think that Australia is the world capital for rock bands with girls on bass. Let’s see, there’s:

And most of those bands are power pop bands, which is fine by me.

Incidentally, it’s been said quite a few times that there’s nothing sexier than a female bass player. I don’t know just how true that is – I guess that sexiness is in the pants of the beholder – so I’ll leave that up to you.

In honour of all those four-stringed ladies, here’s a collection of Songs of the day involving girls on bass that I’ve presented to date:
