Man, I would t take dwlb out for the SA article, but the Neve article may make me warm up the gas gussler and take a trip.
Looks like dwlb can live another day, mine just showed up in the mail. My last renewal was 6/28, must have just skeweked it in there on time.

Is that a sneaky PRF joke?
It was a dumb Mad Max joke. What's PRF?

Otherwise known as the premier rock forum.

The Crap/Not Crap section often pits things against one another thunderdome-style.

I don't know why I haven't thought of trying to recruit anyone from Tape Op for the songwriting challenge until now.

I like the Electrical forum, but haven't spent much time in the crap/not crap area. I'll go check it out!

Side note about free US subscriptions:

You do not have to renew every 6 months. That makes no sense. You renew once a year. We send an email notifying you of this. If you do not get it then your spam filter is grabbing it or you entered the wrong email. We have a new system that will remind you several times in are you are lazy.

If you miss an issue signing up will not get you the current issue as it has already mailed out. Please visit www.goodmtn.com for back issues.

Tx, I must have confused 6 issues with 6 months in my crepid brain at one point. I have a reminder set for 6 mos, so I prob never need the reminder email.

The article on Albini was pretty enlightening. I didn't know much about him beforehand, other than the fact that he had a reputation. A reputation as a disturber of the peace, but in a cool punk rock way. Afterwards I listened to Surfer Rosa and In Utero. I can definitely here a common thread, very raw. I love this sound. I think we need guys like him, thanks for the article. Good stuff.
Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.

Fantastic interview. Maybe the best. Great job, Larry and Tape Op.
