Joe Chiccarelli is a great pal of ours at Tape Op, so we keep an eye out for work he does (although I was too scared to listen to the Elton John record he worked on...) So here I open up this Clem Snide CD, and Joe's name is spelled wrong. So I check some American Music Club records he worked on, and one out of two was misspelled. That shit must get old - I'm glad my name is easy to spell. The record's damn good, and I like how the vocals are usually very dry and on the edge of the speaker. Excellent sounds, great songs. Joe seems to have been the token male on this project, as it was recorded at Brooklyn Recording with Suzanne Kapa engineering and mastered by Emily Lazar at The Lodge with help from her awesome assistant Sarah Register.
