On Repeat: They Use the Head and Not the Fist

It kinda does remind me of the Monkees, actually.

All roads lead to Beatown*, where Andy breaks down how one actually achieves (or, in the late 70s, achieved) what I call that psychedelic, in-the-tunnel sound effect at the end. It's literally playing two tapes of tracks synced slightly apart from each other and recording on a third tape. I think.

*This is very, very dangerous for me. I haven't let myself even scan everything. Yet. When that day comes that I've gotten everything work/project/necessity-shopping finished, then I will dive into this fat pile of creative analysis and music/gear nerdery.
