Fuzz Enlists Albini for Newest Project

Fuzz recorded their newest album III on 24-track 2” analog tape and mixed at United Recording with engineer Steve Albini shortly before the Safer at Home order was issued. Albini’s experience in capturing sound gave Fuzz the ability to focus entirely on the playing, while knowing their distinctive sonic signature would remain without the use of overdubs and studio enhancements. “We wanted to record in L.A. to stay close to home,” said the band’s guitarist, Charles Moothart. “We wanted to be able to go in and get live takes and not stress too much on mixing, and we wanted it to be fun. All signs pointed to working with Steve at United.”

The search engine AllMusic.com called Lee “one of the most influential and prolific producers in reggae history, pioneering the art of the dub, expanding the parameters of studio technology like no Jamaican producer before him.” Lee was 79 years old.
