    Guy Pratt on Toy Matinee's "Last Plane Out"

    Guy Pratt has been putting out "Lockdown Licks" videos where he talks about and plays through notable songs from his career. I never realized that he was the bassist on most of the Toy Matinee album, and here he talks about working on the record and plays through "Last Plane Out".

    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    He used that octave down effect a lot back then. On various live Floyd tunes, and even on Madonna's Like A Prayer.

    That was a true gem of a video, as is Guy! Thanks so much! Toy Matinee is one of the greatest albums ever, IMO. For no really good reason, I missed
    the tour here in the Bay Area, which I continue to regret and am ashamed of. I saw Guy last year in SF with Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets.
    I never knew Queen Of Misery was about Madonna until I just read it.

    Yeah, there's a running joke in the comments of his videos where he keeps getting asked about what kind of octave unit he uses.

    Thanks for sharing this. I need to check out more things he was/is a part of; seems he's right up there with Lee Sklar in terms of being an all-around session pro. Too bad that he has such a subdued personality. Maybe a couple cups of coffee would help!

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    Great! I love that bass on Toy Matinee.

    I'll always take the roundabout way

    "Why would anyone NOT do it?!?"
