Daniel Lanois Info
« on: February 15, 2009, 02:48:31 PM »
Some work I've been given for the half term break includes researching the production and microphone techniques of Daniel Lanois. I've found a list of some of the albums he's worked on, but can't find anything about his specific role and what he did.

Can any of you good Frost*ies help?

Cheers Rog! The problem with Wikipedia is we ain't allowed to use it, what with anyone being able to change it and such. I did use it as a means to find his official website, but maybe I should give it a read anyways - might be able to point me in a better direction.

Thanks again, matey!  :D

Sorry thats probably not much help right now. I'll see if I can dig it up.

oh yeah, you can never use wikipedia as a primary source, but there are usually many links from there that can be.  it's a great trampoline!

Aye, that be true. Even if the main article is at fault, the references and links have to be correct for accuracy's sake. These are the things I go for when I'm researching stuff.

Also ta for the help EVP!  :)

'On Some Faraway Beach' - the Brian Eno biography - contains a little about the working relationship between the pair on U2 stuff. (Mainly involving DL doing all the actual work, while Eno pontificates, as far as I can tell)
I was a victim of goose-flirting the other day.
This bleeding great goose came up to me and wanted a light.
I said no.
Goose, there\'ll be no flirting today.
