Question about Aenima bass credits

Post by tompie » Tue Oct 29, 2019 12:57 pm

Hey y'all - just looking for any clarification re: the bass writing on Aenima. I always knew Paul was involved in some of the songwriting on the record. Justin says as much even in recent interviews when he mentions that he got demos of Stinkfist, Eulogy and Aenema to work on for his audition. This tracks given the leaked demos from that album which seem to have Paul performing on those songs plus Pushit. My question is - how come the discrepancy on the Wikipedia page for the album? There, Paul is given a credit for H. but not the title track. Is that simply an error (swapping H. for Aenima) or did Paul have a hand in writing H. as well? Any insights on this?

Here is an old thread that discusses this topic. I am not sure it was clear even then who played on/credited for what songs.

Thanks for this. Looks more and more like the JC stuff is Jimmy and Third Eye.

46&2 as well, which I believe was the first song JC wrote with the band

I remember seeing in some kind of music database (the official American one, I believe) years ago when that stuff was public (maybe it still is - someone has to help me with that) that Paul is credited for Stinkfist, Eulogy, H., Pushit and Ænema. The rest of the songs are credited to Justin. All except for H. are featured on the Ænema demos recorded presumably in 1994/1995.

There were discrepancies in that database however, Maynard's Dick was credited to Justin as well, even though they performed it in 1992.

iirc this just reiterated what we already knew in less detail, no? aka that he got a demo w/ eulogy, pushit and aenima? Mostly curious about his involvement on the non-demo tracks as it is increasingly looking to me like H. and HWAP were also primarily Paul songs.
