Jim Beaugez, interviewing Juliana for GuitarPlayer.com:
[JB] Were there times on Weird when you dug particularly deep into the guitar tones?
[JH] Yeah, there were lots of sonic experiments, like the solo on “Lost Ship.” We recorded the guitar solo direct into the Neve console. No amplifier. That’s how I got that cool sound.
That’s also how Nirvana did “Territorial Pissings” [on Nevermind].
Oh, did they? I love the sound of it. It sounds like something’s broken. In the song “It’s So Weird,” we did the solo through a Leslie speaker, which I haven’t done much on my records. My favorite pedal was a Zvex Fuzz Factory, which I played on some stuff on this album. It’s my new favorite pedal.
