P-Bass Expressway

studio-based five piece funk outfit formed in christchurch by nava thomas (aka confucious / soul providah) and ariel white, and featuring contributions from erstwhile members in melbourne and all over the globe, the band did play locally in the late 90s, reforming with the release of their debut album in early 2004.
their recordings and live show encompass performances from many of christchurch’s dub, funk and electronic regulars – but in my opinion they have quite propelled themselves beyond the soul-jazz-lite level to credible dirty-funk yet (with their album sounding far too clean and focused to really groove).
