I joined Feedbands in May partly because of a post here. I think it was a thread started by A'gon member MofiMadness. It has been nice seeing Feedbands evolve. They now have numbered certificates with the records and the records themselves really feel like 180 gram pressings from larger labels. I honestly did think one of my earlier records was less than 180 grams. Music wise Amycanbe and The Wild Ones have been my favorites so far. The Amycanbe record to me sounds really good, possibly the best out of all of them.
I wonder if this is a contributing factor:
"Feedbands lacquer masters are now cut by Pete Lyman.
Feedbands has been on a quest to find the most talented individual to cut our lacquer masters. We finally settled on Pete, who has mastered albums for artists including Gogol Bordello, Ben Harper, the Mars Volta, and Best Coast.
Pete's an extremely knowledgeable and experienced engineer, but what really caught our attention was his equipment. He uses a special, one-of-a-kind Scully lathe which he outfitted with Neumann electronics and a Neumann cutting head. Scully, a now defunct American company, only made a small handful of its LS-76 models, and Pete has the very first one. The German company Neumann is still around, so Pete combined the best of both worlds by installing Neumann parts into a Scully machine to create an amazing Frankenstein of audio engineering.
There's only one lathe like this in the world, and it's cutting our records. We're blown away by the sound, and we know you will be too."
I'm going to keep my feedbands subscription going. It really helps me get exposure to different bands.
