What did Helmet record at Sound City Studios?

Postby SoundCity » Thu Apr 19, 2012 6:59 pm

I am researching for a movie about Sound City Studios (in Van Nuys, CA). Helmet is a band that is on a list I have, but I can't find which album they recorded there. This is the same studio Nevermind was recorded in. Does anyone know what Helmet recorded there?

I don't have my CDs available to check right now... do you know what the date of that studio time was? We should know based on that.

Based on the location, my guess is Size Matters.

Size Matters was at Cello. Aftertaste at Hollywood Sound… all this is on Wikipedia.

Most of the recording studios are listed on Wikipedia, but it doesn't look like all of them are. Regardless, I checked the CD liner notes of all the albums, and oddly enough none of them say they were recorded at Sound City Studios. Size Matters says it was engineered at Cello Studios (and other places too, I think), but for some reason it doesn't actually say where it was recorded (even though the Wikipedia page says it was recorded at Cello Studios).

True enough. I'm not sure why a movie researcher doesn't just call the subject of his movie and ask them… but what do I know.

I think the reason for this is that a lot of the recording was done piecemeal at various places over time, with "assembly" and additional recording at Cello. Makes sense given the highly collaborative nature of that record, and the fact that the full band was recruited quite late in the day.

Anyway, it must've been some odd track, maybe a soundtrack or compilation contribution or something. Either that or some piece of album post-production so small it wasn't worth crediting.
