LINN KIKO is a new proposition from LINN expanding the range of  LINN DSM products. I have still to listen to this little beauty but there is no question about how promising it is.

Both speakers and DSM have aluminium chassis available in a range of colours. The DSM  uses digital power amplifiers with on-board DS player and pre-installed activ cards to run the two way speakers fully activ.

As with any LINN DS products it can be controlled by ipad, can stream 24 bit and appears as an apple airplay device for wireless p…

Mixing getting all mixed up ...

I am currently helping out with feedback for the release of an album from Ryan McDowell, a young talented singer songwriter from Glasgow. Though Ryan has recently played support for Admiral Fallow and has been twittered by BBC as a new hot talent he is currently unknown. His label has politely declined Radio 1 from playing his demo material preferring to release things properly. Promising!!
Ryan's album has now been recorded in the Amazing Gorbals Sound (5M UK pound studio which he shared with Susan Boyle for the week) and is partly acoustic and partly with a full band. The first song to be released has now been mixed by Gordon McNeil and also by the amazing Chris Potter whom has worked with artists like Pink, Sarah McLachlan, Brian Adams & Annie Lennox to name a few.
I already have Gordon's take and yesterday I received Chris's version. It took me twenty seconds to decide I liked Gordon's better simply as it was easier to follow, in less of a rush and though muc…

Alan Williams (LINN Key account manager) moves on to 'warmer' markets ...

I met Alan a couple of years ago when he returned to Sweden as key account manager after the departure of Andrew Oates. 
Pictured below doing what he does best ... Alan is truly amazing at trimming speaker positions. He is a nice man with a love for music, guitars and fat American cars. 
It was a pleasure to work with him. Peoples & Schmidt and I personally wish him every success and happiness in the far east ... and a big thanks!



Big shoes to fill Barry ;)


A man whom enhanced the life of millions ...

A sneaky peak from the studio making Maeve O'Boyles new album...

Meave O'Boyle recording a new album with legendary bass player Laurie Cottle

**PEOPLES & SCHMIDT NEW NUMBER 076 007 12 81**
Gordon McNeil from GoGoBot is playing drums on the new record for Maeve O'Boyle and had this to say about Laurie .. ''We have the amazing Laurence Cottle coming up from London to play bass.
This guy is a genius!
He played bass for Eric Clapton and also recorded bass on Black Sabbaths "Headless Cross" album. Awesome!''''Wowsers, what a day. Recording Maeves album and getting to play drums along with Laurie Cottle on bass .... In all my life, I have never heard a bass played so good!
... Feel, velocities, flavour and technique all just perfection''

#Gordon McNeil, Drummer (GoGoBot, producer, song writer)

Laurie was here in the shop last October playing 'LIVE' with LadyClaire Martin&Gareth Williams. Pictured here in our shop below with his fret-less bass behind Claire.


Maeve has sent some demo songs from the new album so drop into the shop if you want a listen. She is dynamite!!!! …

Too many beers with the original guitarist from rock band 'In Flames'

I was shocked to hear his all time favourite band was Depeche Mode ... from a metal guy ... ?? It's now decided that his new band will have a VIP release party in our shop with LIVE performance later in the year!
So we chatted about this Danish band Mew & turns out it's one of his absolute favourites. Check them out

A great reason why you shouldn't wait to buy a LINN HiFi ... revealed by late evening sun on our sofa :)

Christoffer Berg & Depeche Mode

"One reason for all this smooth sailing is the involvement of producer Christoffer Berg, who’s working alongside veteran Mode producer Ben Hillier. “He’s a great musician and has a lot of fantastic ideas,” enthused Gahan. “He’s not afraid to stand up and say, ‘I got an idea.’ I like that. It’s quite intimidating working with a band like ours because you have certain expectations of how it is. A lot are true and some aren’t. Martin [Gore] and I are open to other people’s ideas.” Great stuff Christoffer but when are you back in our shop doing Klanger & Spår?? never mind those stars in NY ... P&S in Gothenburg ... that's what's important! Just kidding ... well done!
