Mark Britton from the band Amoeba Teen got in touch back in August 2021 to enquire about mastering their new album. Apparently they are Teenage Fanclub fans – I recorded and mixed Songs From Northern Britain back in 1997!
Amoeba Teen may have to me because they’re Teenage Fanclub fans, and although that gives a clue as to the melodic warmth and delight of the songs, these guys are songwriting geniuses with a range of influences. It’s a fabulous album, beautifully recorded and produced, which was delightful to master. There’s some fabulous 10CC style sax ’n’ vocal harmonies on the lead-off track. The second track has echoes of The Strokes, The Cars and They Might Be Giants… And so on! It’s vibrant, wonderfully enjoyable, timelessly brilliant material. I would urge you to check it out…

Mark Britton from the band said: “George has done a stellar job on mastering the self-titled Amoeba Teen album. He understood immediately the sonic landscape we wanted to inhabit and responded professionally, fast and with great taste. Highly recommended”
