Mick Glossop - The Ruts Sessions

Hi Mick,

In the very early eighties I came across records that I felt were sonically on

another level and often noticed that you were involved with the production.

So much so that after a while I could identify that sound.

It was more polished and punchy than your average punk rock record but also

really captured the musicality of the band.

Probably one the best example of this would be "the crack" from the Ruts wich is

an absolute classic or a song like "shine on me".

Could you share some of the typical techniques you used for these recordings?

Like what set up you had on drums or what desk and compressors you used?

Anything that you can share would be much appreciated.

I refer to these albums whenever I need an example of great analogue sound.

Thanks a lot
