Testimonials

 

We've worked with Andy since 2008, and his experience, workaholic dedication, attention to detail, creativity, professional honesty and constructive criticism have all been major factors in our continuing ability to put out music that sounds great, and this has in turn helped us to build and maintain professional working relationships all over the world, as well as play in many different countries. I firmly believe if it wasn't for our relationship with Andy we wouldn't have achieved as much as we have as an independent band. -

Andy Mac was a total bad-ass in the studio - dedicated, hard-working, professional, and extremely talented. I learned a lot from him in the time we worked together. He’s also a great hang and funny as hell; I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard since I last saw him.

I have worked with Andy Mac for just over two years creating an album with my band Bright Shapes. We went to Andy with some very rough recordings of a few of our songs. The album he has created is beyond anything we thought we would get. We’re very happy with the final product. Not only do we have an album with fantastic production but, throughout the recording process through Andy’s advice and supervision, each member of the band has grown significantly in our skills as musicians and songwriters. Speaking just for myself, through observing Andy’s work, processes and methods, I have a whole new perspective on song writing and have acquired many new skills in recording and producing. All of which I am now applying to creating demos of our new songs. I hope to work with Andy again in the future.

Working with Andy Mac @ Revolution Studios has been a great experience for us. He applied his vast recording and producing experience, to create our album. Add a hefty slice of talent and Andy has lifted our songs, sonically, to a level beyond our expectations.

Out of a deal and out of cash it was time to go back to work. So around 1984 I started writing more material for a new album, and in 1985 signed to Atlantic Records in New York. I was proud to be personally signed by Ahmet Ertegun the founder of the company... We recorded the album at Revolution studio's in Cheadle Hulme, Nr Manchester. The Producer and Engineer was the legendary and brilliant Andy (Rocky) MacPherson still a good friend to this day. Andy also taught me a lot about studio recording techniques, programming and endurance. The album entitled simply 'Loz Netto' came out in 1986 to critical acclaim and we received good airplay from the first single 'We Touch'

Loz Netto

Two of Loz's songs 'We Touch' and 'Any Fool' were heavily featured in the Hollywood movie remake of 'And God Created Woman'
'We Touch' was also featured in the Miami Vice TV show, episode 'The Noon Plane'

It's over 10 years that I'm working with Andy Mac and I can say that recording at Revolution Studio is something really serious. The atmosphere is professional and musical. This sound genius will make your tracks sound in a way you couldn't expect! Once you get into Revo you will find it hard to leave !

Andy Mac's work on our debut album "all departures" was simply Astonishing!!! We recorded on Analogue for the simple reason of wanting that 'real' sound. After several attempts and lots of money we couldnt get the mix right!! So we went to Andy due to his work with The Who!

We completely under estimated the intense detail that Andy would go to in order to ensure we got the product we wanted, and to the extent that he was proud to put his name on it!

Andy has a finite understanding of what we want without us having the words to explain what we want. He just knows!!

We are half way through writing our second album which 'will' be done by Andy.
