The Daily Adventures of Mixerman

(Book). Mixerman is a recording engineer working with a famous producer on the debut album of an unknown band with a giant recording budget. Mixerman is supposed to be writing about recording techniques, but somehow, through that prism, he has hit upon a gripping story. Like all great narratives, Mixerman’s diary has many anti-heroes for whom we, the readers, can have nothing but contempt. The band consists of the four most dislikable human beings you can imagine. The singer is vain and pretentious. The guitarist is a serious depressive. The drummer is as “dumb as cotton,” and the bassist is merely mean and petty, making him the only one that Mixerman can stand. All four of them hate each other’s guts, and they haven’t even been on tour yet. Mixerman takes you through the recording process of a bidding war band in over their heads with a famous record producer (also in over his head). Many find Mixerman’s diary entries side-splittingly funny. Some find them maddening. And a select few feel they are the most despicable accountings of record-making ever documented.

BOOK REVIEWS

  • The Daily Adventures of Mixerman - Anybody who has ever spent time in a recording studio should read this. And those that haven’t spent time in a recording studio should read it just to get a taste of what they DON’T miss. As a musician and engineer/producer, some of the accounts in the book had me ROFL while other stories just ring VERY true.
