Soul Coughing´s ´Ruby Vroom´please

Hello Tchad,
1000times thank you for doing this, your work really made and makes
a difference to the art of record production and recording
Here is my(firstheh) question for you:
Could you please give some insights in the produktion and
recording of Soul Coughing`s Ruby Room?
What console you´ve been working on, what was the room alike,
any specific outboard?
How did you record the drums, how did you treat them during mixtime?
I never heart a better recorded double-bass before so what did you do,
what microfones or pick-ups did you use, what kind of compression and if you remember: What bass was it Mark De Gli Antoni used during the recordings?
And not forget to mention the absolute cool sounding vocals, exceptional sample treatment.
Friggin Great Album!!!!!!
Again, any insights are much appreciated.

Hope it´s not too much I´m asking for...
Cheers,
Mirko

P.S. any hope they´ll reunite?

Q&A with Tchad Blake - awesome! Thanks for doing this...

I'd also be very interested to find out more about the recording of the album. I'm very fond of this record to this day.

Btw, it's Sebastian Steinberg who plays the bass. Mark De Gli Antoni plays Sampler (and probably is one of the very few guys who used the Sampler in an original way).

Probably none, since Sebastian Steinberg handled bass for Soul Coughing.

I'm glad you all like that record. It was a fun record to make. Recorded and mixed in 29 days at The Sunset Sound Factory Studio B, still my favorite tracking room.
DRUMS:
B's (very small) vocal booth was used for drums(a big part of my drum sounds on all albums made from 1986-1998).
1970's API desk.
Would have used San Amp on the K&SN + Spectrasonic 610's on the OH's(mixed into clean OH from separate channels).
I usually ran a 441>Level Loc as a mono K&SN air mix to add into the overall (the mic was placed deep in the kit between the K&SN). Sometimes this was sent to an MXR pedal flanger just to randomize the tone a little.
Standard mics: D112,57's,421's, Neumann head as OH.
BASS: Seby plays with that growl. I just needed to bring it out a bit more which is something Sans Amp does very well. DI>SA+U47 tube>DBX160's.(help JP)
KB's: Thats' Mark. What more can I say. Maybe a little SRS AK100.
VOCAL: Maybe a 57????+ADL. Can't remember. But it just woudn't have mattered all that much. Doughty is such a characterful vocalist. He projects on any mic.
The album was, for the most part, recorded live with some KB's, Voc & GTR ODd later.

Uuups, sorry for me mixing up the names.

Tchad,
great insights, thank you.
I just started to build up a drum-set in our vocal-booth to see how it works
for me.
Apart from that it looks like this little sans-amp is a must have if you wanna
do that `Tchad Blake`thing
Again, great you´re doing this!
Mirko.
