Biography

Pat has been working with indie/punk rock/guitar bands for 35 years, which is somewhat longer than seems sensible or even possible. Pat has recorded and mixed albums form many bands that have been influential in the styles that they worked in. The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Wonder Stuff, Katrina and the Waves and The House of Love influenced a great many bands and artists at the time and even now. Pat works exclusively in this rock and indie styles which whilst being a fairly broad church doesn’t extend very far into the dance neck of the woods. The sound Pat aims for is generally bright and punchy but the proof of any mix is the listening at home. Pat has worked solely in the box for many years now and finds the recall ability invaluable, certainly for the on line mixing, it is an enormous help.
