Took a while to grow on me, my reaction for so long was a massive "WTF?". The repeating guitar part sounds fantastic.

Listened to this again today.  Just for bass players, a few things: I think he's playing a Fender Precision with roundwound strings on it and you can hear the buzzes, which, accident or not, add a bit of grit into the sound. In the middle bit, you can hear him deliberately use those buzzes as the bass solo then mute under the vocals. After that he really messes with the lines he used earlier in the song, some of which I think were accidental but he just went with it and improvised.
