Manic Street Preachers – “William”s Last Words”
This was my first mix with Rick Smith from Underworld. We were already friends and I’d done some mastering for him on some older Underworld material that was being made available on their website. When the Manics asked him to remix this song Rick took the opportunity to get me involved so that we could see how it went, with a view towards collaborating on the next Underworld album (“Barking”). Fortunately everything went very well including recording new drums with Paul Clarvis in High Barn and the mix in my own Hub II studio. Check out Rick’s unusual explanation of remixing (filmed in and around Hub II and High Barn during work on this track) here: Rick Smith explains remix.
