    Mastering editing etc

    I've picked up a few audio tricks over the years and have become fairly handy at cleaning / editing / post-production in general. I can make unimpressive recordings sound much bigger or can apply transparent post-production to make your mixes louder / more widescreen without brickwalling them...

    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967)

    I get that the attitude influenced a lot of people, dark, literary, sometimes noisy (goth and post-punk) but I know very little that really sounds like the first album. I tend to think that the space rockers and paisley underground people sound more like an amped up version of the third album...

    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967)

    'The Velvet Underground Bootleg Series' (The Robert Quine tapes) was a real eye-opener for me as someone who had sort of written them off after Cale left. These tapes show them in action as a jam band in the Grateful Dead sense - extended improvisations that have this huge cumulative effect.

    The 'Bands I don't Get' thread

    Beg to differ on the Sylvian / Fripp album ... I was hugely disappointed at the time but it came to mean a lot to me. Those first couple of Sylvian records are still exemplary high-wire acts of marrying experiment with incredible craft .. as with Eno, Gabriel, Walker, Bush et al in the same period
