For those of you unaware Martin Sweet is now playing Bass for Sister.

He has stated that Crashdiet will always been his main band and i believe him. I am interested to hear everyone's opinions.
My personal one is: I'm interested in seeing what his bass playing style is like and while i think its a good thing, i still think its a strange choice.

Interesting. I'm not at all familiar with Sister (that's going to have to change very soon), but I do have an unusual fascination with bass players so in that sense I'm very curious to see what comes of this. :P

Interesting indeed. I guess he just wants toplay gigs, which seems unlikely with Crashdiet at the moment. Will be weird seeing him on bass though :P

This. I do find it a good choice by Sister, mainly because they all probably know what they are in for with each other, they've worked together for years, toured together etc, so while I was surprised I am completely getting it, but I just have a visual problem. Like no, dude. You're a guitar player. haha.

Try to see it this way: he is a musician who usually plays the guitar ;)

I'm with you on this! Every time I try to imagine it my brain just does not compute :P

I'm quite excited to see how this pans though, hopefully they'll be on tour over here soon :)

Well you know how the story goes, if it's too loud then you're too old.

This is exactly the part i'm still getting used to as a guitarist myself my brain is like no that's not enough strings and i haven't even seen a pic of him holding a bass hahaha

Here you go Mr Grinder, boys and girls. 4 minutes of Martin "pretend playing" bass guitar. Equal ammount of time of Peter pretend playing lead guitar of course (for those of you who are into that). From 3:20 and onwards.

I love it when bands go "Fuck playback, we're gonna have fun with this".
In the end you can hear them talk about it:

P - Höhöhöhö
M - That went well
P - Yeah that was fun!
M - Hell, maybe I should start to play bass!
P - Do you wanna switch?
Martin gives back the bass guitar to Peter
P - Höhöhöhö




I was surprised too, but it defintely makes sense (:

Does make me super nostalgic for a live show though! It's been too long :'(

I feel like his role is mostly gonna be a live musician maybe. Ricky was in that band so long it feels really weird. And the old guitarist left aswell, and I don't know about the writing method the guys use but it feels like it's usually bass and guitar. But then Jamie feels very passionate about it so the writing process cant have changed too much if that's what theyre doing.

As for the sound I really hope he'll use single coils, use a pick and play really close to the bridge for ultimate twang! And tim recently got a maple neck strat so he's gonna need to push the mids up good. Gonna get good and old school then but with violent amps, so a nice blend taking away some mushyness. Reallllly hoping.

I don't think anyone had any doubts he could play it, just the visual was too weird ;)

when lestat/lizzy pistol/whateverthefuckhisnameis left everyone wondered about the songwriting aswell and I guess it turned out fine. Also since he was involved in their production so much I feel like he already had way more input than we think, maybe not so much the actual writing, but arrangement/sound etc... so I guess theres more creative process going on than JUST live musician... He designed shirts and stuff for them aswell if I'm not mistaken...


also we know a bass is a guitar... technically :p

Contemporary Sleaze Bass Rock originated in Stockholm, Sweden during the late 2015s to early 2016s. Pioneering acts such as Sister and Crashdïet, one more popularising than the other, established their symbioticly created invention as a whole art form.
