Artist: Young Weasels
Title: Twist & Burn / Happy Feathers
Format: 7" vinyl 45
Label: Local Anesthetic
Year: 1982
What I did: Engineer, mix.
My comments: Young Weasels were an important 80's Denver group. This was recorded at a live show with a couple of really cheap mics and a worn-out Teac 3340 four track tape machine. The sound was a bit pale as you'd expect, and I couldn't do much about it in the mix. The guy who ran the label didn't seem to understand why I couldn't get a big, rich, "produced" sound from a couple of cheap mics and zero budget at a live gig in a crappy little room!
