Fernando Lamadrid: Electriceratops

Whenever I see a new video featuring bassist Fernando Lamadrid, I stop whatever I’m doing to watch.

And Fernando never disappoints.

Recorded live in late December, here’s “Electriceratops”.

    Beautiful! Is there an album? This band plays really well together.

    First, let me say that I’m sure they are talented. However, I can’t even listen to this genre. I am probably musically biased, but I can’t stand keys. That awful, too-loud organ tone hasn’t changed since the 60’s.

    It seems like anybody who does that cookie-cutter Return to Forever stuff is guaranteed a spot on this site. Just look how many pretentious Wulfpeck and Snarky Puppy videos there are.

    Might be just me, but I think ya’ll need to mix it up and take a look at Jack Donovan from Elder. The album Dead Roots Stirring is a wonderfully auroboric monstrosity.

        Corey, thank you for playing obscure stuff like this. You turned this guy on to a band from Spain I had not heard of. I went to Fernando’s website and downloaded The Mencial Project’s album from 2013 for free (Fernando has a link to the WAV files on his homepage). I LOVE their sound.

        Having said all that, variety and mixing it up is nice too, as the above poster mentioned. I have noticed this site does play a lot of jazzy type stuff. I have very eclectic taste, and can go from listening to metal one minute to “pretentious” 70’s fusion such as Return to Forever and Weather Report.

        Please do not showcase less jazzy stuff, but perhaps include more rock, pop, etc. Let us listeners choose to click on a link or disregard. Once again, thank you for opening my eyes to new obscure artists. Artists like Fernando here with The Mencial Project and even Laszlo Demeter from Absurdcus who was showcased last month (also, a great album available for download on their site).

      • Hi all,

        I just wanted to say that I am incredibly grateful for notreble and that it is one of the best things I’ve ever encountered as a bassist and composer. I don’t absolutely love every video that’s posted here, but I always know it’s going to be good. I’ve discovered a lot of my favorite bands here, and the variety is quite admirable. I greatly appreciate that the majority of videos are from very current musicians (though the classic stuff is great as well). Nobody should be blaming you guys for current trends in the music world that not everybody happens to like . . .

        Thanks so much,

    This sounded most excellent , nice choice Cory. I played bass when younger then laid it down. Two years ago I somehow ending up on talkingbass.net and caught the bass bug . Went out and bought a new bass doing my best to learn , it’s what I do now. I don’t know how I found ‘No Treble’ but it’s the first thing I click on to in the morning .
    Thanks to Mark @ talkingbass , Paul @ howtoplaybass , Corey , Kevin all others at notreble my life has meaning yet again. When you have nothing , you got nothing to lose just gain by moving forward one day at a time.

    Anywho… after reading all of that… Fernando Lamadrid is a BADASS even though I didn’t particularly dig this tune much. I still appreciate the video just the same. Thanks Corey!
