They said it was over, they said we were wrong…

Mastering is Complete

We could not be happier. Quite amazing the difference good mastering can make. Also amazing, perhaps even more so, is how we stumbled upon our mastering engineer, Patrick Bird.

“I wonder who mastered Teenage Fanclub,” I thought lazily on my computer. Googled and arrived at PSB Music. I read the engineer’s credentials and my jaw dropped.

Here’s a sampling:

Björk • Blur • Crowded House • David Bowie • Donovan • Elvis Presley • Everything But The Girl • Iggy Pop & The Stooges • INXS • Jamiroquai • Jimi Hendrix • Joy Division • Killing Joke • Lou Reed • Marc Bolan • Marvin Gaye • MC5 • Mick Ronson • Noel Gallagher • Oasis • Paul Weller • Primal Scream • Pulp • Ramones • Saint Etienne • Stephen Duffy • Suede • Super Furry Animals • Teenage Fanclub • The Boo Radleys • The Cure • The Fall • The Orb • The Yardbirds • T-Rex • Tricky • Underworld • Van Morrison • Wet Wet Wet

I wrote in asking if it’d be the same engineer working on my job and Patrick himself replied yes.

Off we went. Professional. Stress free. Accommodating. Generous.

We lucked out.

One of Patrick’s recent post-production work is ‘Black to Comm’ by Primal Scream & MC5.
