Nigel: So many microphones. I think drumkits are kind of ridiculous things in the amount of microphones and audio channels and processing they take up. My taste usually leans towards keeping things simpler. My favourite drum sound for Tape Deck Heart is when it was stripped back to the 3 mic Glyn Johns trick. Sounded just right, to me.

Rich Costey's search for the right drum sound even led him to tape a microphone to the front of my body for a number of takes. Whatever the producer wants, right?
