Fieldy – Zibba Zibop: A Video Breakdown
With a special guest appearance from Zzzaxx.
Reginaldy “Fieldy”Arvizu has been Korn’s bassist since their formation in 1993. That’s what he’s best known for and certainly what helped him get on MTV Cribs not once, but twice. It is easy to forget, but Korn isn’t the only music Fieldy has created. As previously mentioned on the Toilet Ov Hell podcast, Fieldy put out a rap album under the name Fieldy’s Dreams. It’s not good. He’s also in Stillwell, a band I (and I suspect most of you) had completely forgotten about until this very second.
Whelp, the creativity train rests not for Fieldy as the bassist has released a new solo album, impressively titled Bassically. *Kisses fingers*. About the album, Fieldy says:
“This is a bass album that encompasses the last nine years of my life on the road recording with a variety of special and unique basses. This project features recordings of mine from dressing rooms, tour buses, hotel rooms and other unique locations playing on basses just as obscure as the locations. It’s a blend of funk, fusion, and rock – I can’t wait to share it with you.”
This is the point in Video Breakdown where I would helpfully post the music video for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, the video for Fieldy’s new song “Zibba Zibop” is not on an easily embeddable website like Youtube. As of this writing, the video is only on Fieldy’s PledgeMusic page, so just click this link right here and enjoy (or something).

0:05: He’s giving that bass a siqqqq tribal tat.

1:16: Apparently, Fieldy is a Tic-Tac-Toe aficionado.
1:24: You had one job, dude. One job!
1:35: Underpasses: When you have no money to shoot a video, but you don’t have access to a warehouse.
1:41: And you don’t want to drive out to the desert.
1:47: Sure, why not have some random skateboarders?
1:56: Throw your hands up in the air and wave them around like we’re paying you to care!
2:01: The “I gotta pee” dance move never really took off.
2:09: I’m hoping he accidentally engraved “FEILDY” onto his bass.
