15.jpg (me and Elliott rolling in Jackpot!'s original MCI JH-16, Feb. 1997) As most readers of Tape Op may have picked up on by now, I have been involved in the archiving and cataloging of the music of my late friend, Elliott Smith. Here's an interview I just did about this if you are curious. I also was interviewed for one of those little 33 1/3 books about Elliott's XO album. I was allowed to fact check and contribute to this book and I feel it's one of the better things to come out about my friend. Buy it here. Author Matt LeMay will also be doing a book tour for this. See him in Portland at Reading Frenzy on May 21st, 7PM.

 

Tape Op is a free magazine exclusively devoted to
the art of record making.

After reading Larry's "Eliminate Variables" End Rant from last issue, I was compelled to write a response. Don't get me wrong, I agree completely with everything he said; so before you read any further, revisit the back page of issue #92. I...

CASE ONE: Many years ago I was sent a very complex piece of recording equipment to review. It basically performed one simple function; but its inherent design was the concept that every parameter could be adjusted. Some similar devices I already...

I politely asked Youtube to remove a song by my old band that someone had posted without permission. They took it down but then apologized "sorry about that" and ran my business name as if "blaming me" for removing content. Really? Wow. Pretty...

I just stumbled across an interview I forgot I did. Snarky answers and all. Man, I'm a jerk sometimes. All the time?
