Even this ain't big enough. Needs way more decay. Still has remnants of the late 1970s/early 1980s dry and natural drum tone. I'm talking lots of reverb, all processed to the hilt! This is too dry.We're how many posts into a thread about 80's big drums and no mention of BIB/FTATR? Since everybody is expecting something Back in Black I'll post this one - I love the huge gobs of space they leave around these huge drums in this track:
Yeah! This is good!! I like the dripping reverb on that snare!This one is a bit wetter on the reverb. Ironically this is one I was thinking about on the bass drum thread a few weeks ago and when I went back to listen - it's pretty much all beater click and not the deep whomp I remembered.
BTW, I love that first snare hit, but then the rest of the song is a more "normal" 1980s reverbed snare sound. I wish they followed through with the whole track using that intro snare reverb setting!Well Targalx, you knew it was only a matter of time before I posted this!
I really regret not seeing them on their last tour stop here. George is the secret weapon of that band.Love the 1975.
Flew to London to see them in 2018.
They seem to be heavily inspired by the Talking Heads too, especially with the addition of magical Jaiy Twins dancing.
George does a killer job at backing vocals too.
The Bob Clearmountain mixes are almost always incredible. And yes on Mickey Curry, too -- especially with the Cult! The "Reckless" LP is definitely Bryan's best, and Bob had a lot to do with it.Although not visually depicted in this particular “live” Bryan Adams video, I have to confess that I love Mickey Curry’s playing on this Bryan Adams album and anything else he did in the ‘80s (Hall and Oates, The Cult et al).
