SPB: Was the mic’ing in the studio when you recorded Magus fairly straight forward, or were there some things you and the engineer did to find the right mics or experiment with sounds?
Andy: The mic’ing was more or less the same as most of our previous records, nothing too wild. The real “x” factor though, is a room mic that James set up in an empty bathtub, in a bathroom just off the live room. We mixed that room mic track in on every song. Most of the other experimentation was done with amps/pedals/plug-in effects.
