ever wonder what happened to postpunk producer Adam Kidron?

Had a good laugh when I saw this blog post about Adam Kidron, producer/engineer of many fine records of the postpunk era (particularly on Rough Trade) - including some by the Raincoats ("Odyshape"), Red Crayola ("Kangaroo?"), This Heat ("Deceit"), Scritti Politti ("Songs To Remember"), Orange Juice "You Can't Hide Your Love Forever"), Pere Ubu, Nina Hagen, the Nightingales, Rip Rig & Panic, Lizzy Mercier Descloux and many others. Turns out he's got an interesting history aside from all that and is the guy responsible for the much-derided Spanish language version of the American national anthem:

i thought kidron sounded like a hebrew name, and lo and behold...


He was born in Cape Town into an ardently Zionist family. ... He left South Africa just after the war to join his parents, who had already emigrated to Palestine. There he went to the Tichon Hadash progressive school in Tel Aviv – where he rejected Zionism almost immediately – then on to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to study economics... But Israel was a backwater for anyone not tied in to the Zionist project.

It should be noted that the above post is about Adam's deceased father Michael, not Adam himself.

Gene Simmons agrees.
