    This is probably not what you're looking for, but godheadSilo is a two-piece with just a bassist and a drummer. They're from my hometown (Fargo, ND) and eventually got signed to Sub Pop but they're not really active anymore.

    October Rust is the main one with bass as lead, it's slightly more buried on World Coming Down and Bloody Kisses.

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is The Flying Luttenbachers. They had this weird noisy album (Infection and Decline) with two basses as the only stringed instruments. I'm not sure if that was the instrumentation on their other albums or not.
