I was listening to New Day Rising in my car today, and goddamn, I never noticed just how fucking AWFUL that CD sounds. "Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill" is nearly unlistenable, despite being a great song. Are there any rumours that new editions are being worked on?

And also, does New Day Rising sound better on vinyl?

The problem has always been with the way that Greg Ginn manages the entire SST catalog.

Aaron W (Aaron W), Sunday, 27 February 2005 19:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

More specifically, both Grant and Bob have said they'd like to see it happen but that it's out of their hands.

Aaron W (Aaron W), Sunday, 27 February 2005 20:00 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I think the fact that Bob and Grant hate each other also prevents them from working together to get back the masters....

SST is a horrible label. It's got so much great music and never does a fucking thing to present in it in the fashion it deserves....what a fucking mess.

Well, the Meat Puppets albums were remastered. They were on SST, right? What was the deal with those?

I've noticed that the mix on New Day Rising gets progressively better as the album goes on, but I really have not heard anything as awful as "New Day Rising" or "Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill" on any CD. It's weird that I've never even noticed it before.

Also, is there anywhere that I can read some details on the relationship between Bob and Grant? I wasn't even aware that they hated each other (I've had Candy Apple Grey for years and years, but have only picked up the band's other albums in the last couple years, so I'm not one of their "long-time fans".)

milozauckerman (miloaukerman), Sunday, 27 February 2005 21:58 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I had the Du's albums on vinyl before replacing them with CDs, and I don't remember any big difference in sound quality. Am I wrong? I know the vocals were mixed way down on "Heaven Hill" and "Celebrated Summer" in particular, but that's not a mastering problem.
I'm still waiting for someone to remaster The Replacements' Tim, which would be a truly great album if it didn't sound like shit.

i always loved the out-of-control mix of "heaven hill" for just that reason, because it seemed all the more out-of-control. i also assumed the mix was just the way they wanted it. is this not the case?

The production on most of those Husker Du albums always sucked right out of the gate...very thin, very tinny. It's hard to imagine them getting much better, unfortunately, even if they could wrest control of them away from SST.

chris andrews (fraew), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Man oh man, is Husker Du ever a band in need of a serious remaster campaign. Remixing wouldn't hurt either, though that's even less likely. The level of detail in those songs really deserves better sound - it's kinda funny how for a few years there, their songs were getting more and more sonically dense at the same time that the production got worse and worse (Metal Circus actually sounds kinda OK compared with Zen Arcade and NDR, both of which are more complex, though NDR sounds waaaaaay worse than ZA).

I believe reading in various places that Mould & Hart were particularly unhappy with the mix of NDR, and that a lot of that was due to wrangling w/Spot & SST for control of the sessions. That's why they did Flip Your Wig themselves, which still sounds bad, but in a different way.

Speaking of fantastic SST albums whose power was severely undercut by piss-poor production, how about Damaged? Shit, Ginn's gotta realize he could probably make a decent dimebag off that.

Zack Richardson (teenagequiet), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:18 (twelve years ago) Permalink

what's the fucking deal with Spot anyway? Is he deaf? Does anybody actually want their records to sound like that?

Don't Ever Antagonize The Horn (AaronHz), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

The sound on Flip Your Wig was markedly better than New Day but you have to assume that the records sound pretty much the way Bob and Grant wanted them to. When they signed to Warners they insisted on being allowed to self-produce the albums despite Warners being very keen on bringing someone else in - deliberately sabotaging any chance of mainstream success perhaps?

wombatX (wombatX), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:33 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I suppose that what was likely subpar recording equipment and studios probably had quite a bit to do with the lame sound too.

And Spot...man, I go either way on him. Sometimes he does a really good job (Meat Puppets, Minutemen), sometimes he gets that horribly weak-ass tin can sound (Husker Du, Black Flag).

Zack Richardson (teenagequiet), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:37 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I like the 'out of control' sound on New Day but dislike the tinniness. Bob got the maelstrom of noise + chunky sound years later with Beaster.

wombatX (wombatX), Monday, 28 February 2005 03:44 (twelve years ago) Permalink

when i interviewed Grant 2 years ago, he did say that "Spot had very little say with how those albums sounded" or somesuch.

i'm still debating whether to believe him or not.

j fail (cenotaph), Monday, 28 February 2005 15:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Zack's right about there recordings sounding progressively worse - the Everything Falls Apart & More reish on Rhino is about the best-sounding to my ears. I would asssume that the two Warners LPs (which largely sucked) sounded just fine.

The Argunaut (sexyDancer), Monday, 28 February 2005 15:56 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I always heard it was chopped up to Bob's control freak tendencies and tinnitus. Which would also explain why it gets progressively worse.

It might be my imagination but 8 Miles High sounds a little weaker on cd, but the Warners albums sound the same on cd.

Mr Noodles (Mr Noodles), Monday, 28 February 2005 16:04 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Zen Arcade was recorded only with an 8 track recorder, so it wasn't exactly the highest fidelity of the time.

Spot must have gotten a new reverb or something around 1985, as their is a ton on New Day Rising, 3-Way Tie for Last and the last Black Flag albums, where most of the records he did with those bands are pretty dry up until that time.

I suppose we should be happy these bands even got to record some music. Look at how many of the late 70s bands never even got to make an album.

I think Mr. Noodles made the correct assumption there concerning the influence of Bobs tinitis on the sound of the records. I know he had a big hand in the mixing and I once mentioned to Bob that it might be causing him to mix things a bit on the harsh side. He seemed insulted, so I dropped it. He also seemed very enthusiastic about the magic of extreme compression, as I recall.

Spot is a weird guy. He used to be a fixture on the Austin scene, every show you went to see, he was in the audience too. Had kind of an unexpectedly high voice. Always wore the same getup- shorts and t-shirt, gimme cap with "Spot Removal" logo. Always had a coffee cup with him, you'd try and guess what was in it- whiskey? Irish coffee? and he'd say something like (in that high voice of his) "actually it's French Roast."

gor gor OTM here, at least judging from the vinyl albums that are the only way i've ever heard the huskers. all you peeps who want them remixed or remastered are absolutely insane. that raw tinny guitar blur and those buried vocals, esp. on zen arcade and new day rising, are part of what makes them so great. those are two absolutely perfect records. it's when they started trying to clean up the sound that they lost their way.

No, I'm not Spot, but now that you mention it, I just remembered that the sing songy "La la la" you hear before one of the songs on Zen Arcade (Turn On the News?) is actually someone in the studio imitating Spot (as Jerry Lewis).

I remember reading a long discussion somewhere once (popbitch maybe??) on the effects of various drugs on the production sound of records prompted by Husker Du (and Warehouse: Songs and Stories in particular)

marsh mellow, Tuesday, 1 March 2005 00:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

it's when they started trying to clean up the sound that they lost their way

I couldn't agree more - but it's not cleaner I'd like, it's more powerful. Grant fuckin' slams that kit, and you can just tell that Bob's amp had a jet engine's worth of sound coming out of it, but the end result can sound way too thin and (dare I say?) wimpy, undercutting the force of the songs. And HD were NOT wimpy.

DIY is/was vunderbar. However, the concept that it means you have to have shitty recordings is retardo. Lots and lots of people made fantastic recordings with crappy equipment and little technical expertise. Even "bad" sound can be the coolest thing ever, when used in a way that benefits the material (I sure ain't defending the sound of the Warners stuff, which blows, although in a different way - too overproduced & anti-rock, particularly those poor drums, which were criminally shortchanged on nearly every recording they ever made).

Shitty sound works wonderfully for a lot of bands and a lot of styles of songwriting. Husker Du wasn't one of them. It doesn't ruin the albums - they're still in my list of absolute favorites, and I think they hold up regardless of any sonic flaws - but I inevitably wonder how freaking awesome they would sound with just a little more oomph, ie more accurate representations of what the band actually sounded like. Of course, given the nature of things at the time, it's wonderful they were able to record at all. I'll take bad sounding HD albums over no HD albums any day.

I think it's comparable to the Raw Power situation - that album was godlike before the remix/remaster, but it's even better now, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish HD would get similar treatment. It isn't going to happen, but whatever.

Zack Richardson (teenagequiet), Tuesday, 1 March 2005 03:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I dunno if I have ears made of boot leather or just am so used to them the way they are I can't imagine them otherwise, but I think they sound just like they should.

Austin (Austin), Tuesday, 1 March 2005 04:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

really I just turn it up as loud as possible and it sounds great

but the tinny trebly nature of the guitars and drums mean they sound pretty shitty at normal listening volumes or through headphones

"I think it's comparable to the Raw Power situation - that album was godlike before the remix/remaster, but it's even better now"

I don't like that remix at all. They would have been better off just remastering from the original mix tapes.

The SST stuff is great in the fact that they made do with what they had. If you compare their production to Bad Brains, Minor Threat or other bands of that time, it is about on par. People just didn't have a Protools rig setting on a laptop in every other musicians house in 1983.

While SST business practices are questionable after the fact, if they didn't put out those records most of those bands might not even be known today. By comparison, look at how many of the records put out on Homestead or Restless are completely obscure today, as those labels couldn't keep things in print or could not get them distributed nearly as well.

also, in general Minneapolis punk is fundamentally misunderstood because no one that's not from here really gets that the Suicide Commandos are the most important Minneapolis band ever and that without Chris Osgood is really the central figure to the Minneapolis punk scene, and the Commandos were def one of those bands that existed in that pre-punk nexus between emerging punk, Nuggets, the Who, power pop, DEVO, etc, and everyone in any Mpls band of note would have looked up to them. But overall, I think Minneapolis punk was much less adversarial to classic rock and "year zero" mentality than punk in other cities.

Also like I dunno, classic rock is just in the water here, and KQRS was so dominant for years
