Because the miscreants have tin ears, that's why.

I love it when you show up.

And you can add High on Fire's Blessed Blck Wings to that list as well (the bass and drums together sound just PERFECT on that album... that part in Face of Oblivion with the snare and bass pounding behind the guitar riffing? damn...).

Damn, I was just listening to this exact part when I read your post... and I agree.

And I think Toshi's production on HAT is top notch.
Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

Centripetal core of soul sojourn the field vibrates to absolution. I climb toward the sun to breathe the universal.

Have you seen the bridge?  I ain't seen the bridge!  Where's that confounded bridge?!

yes, he did HAT, and even played some keyboards on it a little bit.  He was also the engineer for POTRE.

Yeah but that album was a heavily treated album. You can't really identify his mark on it.

Toshi is seriously one of the nicest, funniest and most bad ass people I have ever met. I got to record at Sound of Sirens once and it was a blast. Probably the easiest engineer / producer I have ever worked with - makes everything fun, has a killer ear and gets amazing results.

I think I can see why he and Buzz have this long relationship working together. He seems easy-going, and he knows what works for him without being too "learned" about everything.

Nowi have to listen to Bulls & Bees for that hallway sound. From memory "National Hamster" has a pretty live club sound but I could be wrong.

I'm pretty sure the Christmas Day hallway recording story was for Female Trouble with Trevor. Unless they did this more than once.

I've talked to Toshi a couple times at shows. Really nice guy.

The fact that his studio is Sound of Silence in a Japanese accent is fucking hilarious.

How about the drum and lumberjack intro to "War on Wisdom" for that hallway sound?

Also I started looking for any indie/off-the-radar bits I missed from Toshi's production catalog. Right now I'm digging (big) pig - Puerco Grande. Looking for more suggestions.
