This week we’re doing a special reunion edition of Performance Anxiety. We are thrilled to have legendary producer, engineer, studio owner Don Zientara join us. He has recorded many of the albums that define the sound of early punk. His clientele has ranged from Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Fugazi, to Henry Rollins, Shudder To Think, and Dave Grohl. He tells the story of how he began recording bands in his Arlington, VA basement and how that evolved to become Inner Ear Studio. Don was also in a band in the early 80’s called Underheaven. They have reformed and will be playing shows beginning this week! Check out Underheaven on FaceBook at Underheaven-DC. Check out Inner Ear Studio @ innerearstudio.com. Follow us @PerformanceAnx on Twitter & IG. Check out our merch @performanceanx.threadless.com. Subscribe, rate, review & I hope it’s as much fun for you to listen to as it was for me to record this episode with Don Zientara.
