Great video.
Got a lot of time for GM.
When I was at music college, every new E,W&F album blew us away.
Great drum sounds.

Nice find Ben! Great to see him still thinking and experimenting. I guess that's one of the things that makes him so good!

I was hoping to find a new improved way of OHead placement - and its the same way I do it - at least he said fuk!
Also I measure the distance from the snare to each mic with a spare mic lead
....and the harder the drums are played the more forward I bring the mic's
none of this x/y ms fancy shit
