Muse Origin of Symmetry

Hi
Thanks for compliments on Muse record. Dave Botrill had already done and mixed his tracks and yes, the idea from the beginning was he would do the 'hits' and I'd do the more experimental weird stuff so those songs were done. We went to Real World Studios and recorded tracks in Big Room and then spent some time on Dave Gilmour's boat studio on Thames called Astoria. And then had week or so Abbey Road before band went off to Sawmills to mix with John Cornfield who they'd worked with before. All this was planned before we started. Massive bass sound? yes there's two and liberal use of Big Muff I'm sure. Matt was putting it on everything.
I think all their records since have been awesome and yes looking forward to where they go next!
Cheers JL
