They're friends of mine. I actually recorded the Blue Sky Mind album (terrible recording but we were all young and didn't have access to the best gear in the world, plus they kind of wrecked it in mastering) and mixed some of "The machine that won the war." I've also mixed them live more times than I can count.
The vinyl version of BSM sounds way better than the CD version. We "un-mastered" it and got back some of the top end.
Great band for that Sabbath-esque vibe. Did you know that Steve Hennessey actually auditioned for Black Sabbath and spent a week hanging out with Tony Iommi back in the 90s? He said it was a mind-blowing experience as one could imagine.
