Wow, I had to look that band up. Mike Patton huh? Guess I only knew him through Faith No More. Which, is/was a great band.Talking about 90s music, 5.1 remixes of Mr. Bungle's records would be life changing, especially Disco Volante and California. Can. You. Even. Imagine!?!?
It's considered very bad form to spill the beans before the label's publicity team gives the official announcement. And Steven isn't one to alienate his clients.All this 'Cloak and Dagger' nonsense regarding the SW release of a 'famous American Album from the 90's" is utter nonsense. We're not talking Pentagon nor Interpol "CLASSIFIED INFO" Here.
Why can't he JUST mention the name of the album and leave it at THAT!
Hope it's OK Computer - Radiohead
I'd love it too, but the unusual way it was recorded may cause difficulties for a future surround remix. From Wikipedia:That would truly kickass!
Yorke...enjoyed working without audio separation, meaning that instruments were not overdubbed separately. O'Brien estimated that 80 per cent of the album was recorded live, and said: "I hate doing overdubs, because it just doesn't feel natural. ... Something special happens when you're playing live; a lot of it is just looking at one another and knowing there are four other people making it happen."
Guys, we gotta keep in mind that SW would only mix bands/artists that he's into, so as much as I hate to say it, Nirvana - Nevermind, Pearl Jam - Ten, RHCP are discarded.
Missed the part where he said American band. Yes, I agree that NIN would be awesome!Radiohead isn't American, as others have stated, so I doubt it would be that. And even if it were, if it was recorded 'live' as the quote says, it will mean there is bleed-over in the original recording between channels (i.e you might hear faint drums in the guitar track, or bass in the vocal track, etc), which will make separating individual voices and instruments nearly impossible the way it is needed for 5.1. Agree it would be kickass though, if possible.
IMO, surround NIN would be cool. Tool would be incredible....but Tool hasn't even finished the vinyl remasters they started like 3 years ago, so who knows how long surround mixes could take.
