Like Sasha, and, I'm certain, many others, I'm sorry to hear of John Loder's passing. We never met; but Jenny and Kristin always spoke of him with tremendous respect and affection while Simple Machines was being m&d'd by Southern. And, during that association, he mastered A Bedroom Community, at Abbey Road no less, even recutting the vinyl after I whined about some band-jumping on the test pressing. (Which was almost certainly caused by my inexperience in preparing the master tapes.) One fewer good guy.
