Bass Sound from This Must be the Place by Talking Heads?

Just a beautiful tone from the bass guitar and snare with the hi hats on top in that song.

Anyone know the signal chain on that bass? It sure sounds special to my ears!

I haven't listened to that tune in decades, and I'm can't listen to your link now, but I remember from the live concert movie Stop Making Sense that when they played "This Must Be The Place", Tina Weymouth played guitar, and Bernie Worrell played the bass part on his Minimoog. Can't swear the studio version is the same, but wouldn't swear it isn't either.

I would have guessed a P-bass, palm muted with a pick. For no real reason at all though.
