The American musician and singer-songwriter of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club fame celebrates the contribution of bass to popular music, tracing its progress from street corner doo wop and the overlooked `guy at the back' in rock 'n' roll via Paul McCartney, James Jamerson and Carol Kaye.

She reflects on the emergence of '70s funky bass stars Bootsy Collins and Chic's Bernard Edwards, the driving lead bass of postpunk maverick Peter Hook in both Joy Division and New Order through to the growth of Bass Culture in reggae, whose sound systems sparked new genres in drum 'n' bass, grime and beyond.
