At the time that these original tracks came together, 1988/89, I was playing in the machine-driven band NO, and the classic guitar trio, Dumb & the Ugly. SCALESHACK was a forum where I could let the guitar ‘speak for itself’. The tunings and implements used were what made the sounds unique. How I directed these sounds and how the mix engineers balanced these sounds, achieved the creative result – Michael Sheridan
