"Psycho Killer" - the backstory. David Byrne had never heard the Who's "I Can See For Miles"? Also, other classics. If you dig this kind of detail, expect to spend an evening or two.
Wow—this is good stuff!

This is great, I really enjoyed that. I like David Byrne a bunch, it was neat to read about the thought process behind Psycho Killer.

I've been reading these for the last hour and a half... cool find!

These are like reading how a magician does his tricks, a lot of illusion is dissipated. I was really hoping to find "Bohemian Rhapsody" among them.

"[Thomas] Dolby's drum machine on [Blinded Me With Science] was a PPG unit originally designed to work Tangerine Dream's light show."

The kind of factoids I live for.

Very cool. I'll be reading more here I'm sure.

I feel like number-dropping three-digit fake mic numbers into all my conversations now.

"Look, it'll work if we use a 323 close in and a 481 for the room."

What a great link! Just for the story of Sabbath's "Paranoid", and there's so much more. A veritable treasure trove! Bookmarked.

If anyone thinks this is MeFi worthy, feel free to post it. I don't have an account there.

Great post, Eide!

I missed that the via link led here. I emailed this to a friend who enjoys studio wonkery even more than I do and got the "God damn it, now I'm not getting anything done today" reply. Great stuff.
