I was playing the Dead Child mixes for Todd Brashear. After hitting play we were both stunned. It was so highly compressed and eq'ed that it made one gigantic wave of distortion. I had to apologize to him and reinforce that it really does sound great, we just fucked up the mix.
I know its a fear-dream, but it inspired me today to take out all the effects and just run it raw and naked, ala Spiderland.
