The Tubes

There is more than one group called the Tubes. 1) The Tubes are a San Francisco-based theater rock band, popular in the mid 1970s and early 1980s, known for their live performances that combined music performances with many different unique costumes and in some acts they wore leotards with painted on nipples and pubic hair (neither of which points are relevant for evaluating their artistic/musical/political relevance). They made satires of life in the USA; the media, consumerism, and politics. They were often banned in the Midwest USA.

David Bass has been writing and singing for many years now. He works with Derek Fay on a project up until recently called Mrs. Columbo. They were forced to change the name of this band when they discovered another band (through My Space) also called Mrs. Columbo. On David Bass' album the Lovers, he has written both on his own and alongside guitarist Stephen Lytton. His music is often moody and changes in style from song to song. Lyrics are often cryptic and always interesting. Let David Bass know what you think by mailing him here: davidbass.
