This thread title was misleading in regards to the number of erections I was expecting to get.

Butch, butch, butch.....

"Dirty" was one of the most compressed albums I've ever heard..... but at the same time, most powerful and layered. Dirty has such a surreal and magical feel to it. I think only he could have put that touch on it. Sure, the songs are epic, but Butch did his thing on that one!

I always perk up when Butch has something to say!

The board owner there put EJT&NS on Butch's discography instead of Dirty.

You'd think he'd get called on that pretty quick. Which thread talks specifically about Dirty? There's quite a few and I'm not interested beyond that, so I don't want to wade through them all.

Hi Butch,

thanks for doing this and my sincerest compliments on your impressive body of work.

I would like to ask you about your production of Sonic Youth's 'Dirty', the now classic 1992 album that gained them a lot of new fans, including me.

I can imagine the band (and specifically Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore) having some very strong ideas about music production, and I wondered how you were able to find the middle ground between their experimental aesthetic and your result-oriented work methods that led to the full-bodied sound of 'Dirty'.


I recorded Dirty at the Magic Shop in NYC, it has a great old broadcast Neve console.
I must admit, i was a bit intimidated when I first went to meet the band in NYC. I had seen them live before and really admired their approach to music, and for some reason I thought they were going to be all snobby and arty...but in fact they completely disarmed me with their humour and wit. I went straight to Thurston and Kim's appartment on the lower east side, and when I walked in the door, Thurston yelled "we need to make the album sound like THIS"...and played a 7" single I had recorded by a band from the Twin Cities, Mecht Mensch! It sounded like crap!!!
I was completely blown that he had such an obscure single, as well as almost every other obscure band I had ever produced!

When we started recording, my goal was to capture the sound of Sonic Youth with a bit more 3D, full spectrum glory, yet still retain the quality of what makes them unique. We tracked all the songs live, then went back and overdubbed a lot of the guitar parts, so i could spend more time with them on the sound and performance.
It's probably the most "produced" album they ever made, but still sounds like the Sonics.
I LOVE some of the songs: Sugarkane, 100%, Youth Against Fascism.
And Teresa's Soundworld...I remember he night we recorded that song, the hair on the back of my neck went up in the middle of the take, it sounded so greatl...and I remember thinking man oh man do I have the coolest job in the world!

Oh shit, you're totally right. I don't know why I forgot that. Though the band was also credited and I think took a lot more control from him than they did on Dirty. But they were credited on that too.

A whole lotta Killdozer records which is why Nirvana wanted him. Ironically, after Nevermind they couldn't afford to use him anymore...

The only bits of that I understood are "gtrs," "bass," "Kim's vocal," 'n' "Steve." Also, that they may be reffering to Sear Sound... maybe.
