    be warned.....



    There was no way to know how the Gang Green sessions would turn out. They were just three 15 year old South Shore kids who had played a few shows at the Media Workshop and Gallery East. Their earliest live shows sounded pretty awful; not much better than blenders on overdrive. It was just as hard to find Gang Green's sound in the studio. We put the band members in separate recording booths to isolate what each person was playing. It still sounded like crap - we weren't ever sure they could hear each other. From the control room each Gang Green song sounded exactly the same - an initial blast of feedback followed by a furious rush of guitar/bass/drums noise, a sudden stop, and more feedback until we paused the tape deck. It seemed hopeless.
    Our discouragement improved slightly during the initial mixing sessions. We finally heard some structure lurking beneath the chaos. After dubbing the vocal tracks, we mixed each tune, but the results were still less than great. We just couldn't get the right balance of song and energy, and had run out of our allotted time for Gang Green. Their tracks would have to stand as they were, the mixes for all the other Boston Not L.A. bands still had to be finished.
    We kept listening again and again to the initial mixes. It was obvious that the Gang Green tracks could be better, so we went back in. We scraped some extra cash together for a few more hours of studio time. This time it clicked. All the sound came together and morphed into a god-like, punk rock experience. We played back the new mixes one more time. There was no need to say anyting, we all knew right then... fuck yeah - this is what Gang Green sounds like.
