The Lines “Over The Brow” 1980

Although Nerve Pylon took a further session at the Barge Studio to complete with engineer Andy Llewellyn, Over The Brow was recorded and mixed at Matrix with Tom O’Leary at the controls. A wondrous machine called an Eventide Ursa Major SST-282 Space Station was liberally used on this particular mix.

Matrix in Bloomsbury was a happening studio and I did a lot of mixing there later in the 80s. On this occasion I remember meeting legendary percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah who was soon to vocalize on classic cut Masimba Bele by the Unknown Cases, shortly before his tragic death in 1983.
