There’s a new video interview that I did with the lovely George Shilling posted on my RecordProduction.com page: http://www.recordproduction.com/simon-gogerly-music-producer.html I actually did the interview a couple of years ago but it’s only just been edited – probably because I waffled so much.

It’s been a strange and sad week. All my work news pales into insignificance. RIP Steve Jobs – a true visionary, but mostly, RIP my lovely uncle, Jack Hartley, a gentle, generous man who devoted his life to my aunt Joan. Now they can rest together.

Boxes EP “Silent Alarm” released this week: http://boxes.mu/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=3&Itemid=9 It’s been so much fun working with Carey on the Boxes tracks.
