When the Ding Dong Devils got to a point where we had the requisite material to record an album, we brainstormed over who we should work with in the studio. We’d all had experiences with a variety of people in past bands and were happy enough with each of them, but we decided we were beyond settling for “happy enough” with this new project. We’d all heard really good things about Mr. Klein’s prowess behind the controls and we all respected his musicianship with bands like the Bomboras, the Finks, the Witchdoctors and the Ghastly Ones. One of us approached him, he found time for us and we haven’t looked back! From our first tentative tiki garage album, “Tassels, Mai-Tais and Mischief,” to our sophomore room crawler, “Hello Little Olives!,” to our latest Moais in outer space themed, “Space Fezcapade,” Dave has been there to assimilate the raw sounds, help us realize our full potential, prod us to go the extra mile and capture the results in the finest sonic groove imaginable! Dave doesn’t just turn the machine on and turn you loose; he makes sure everything is comfortable, easy to hear and always in tune. He has a remarkable ear and isn’t shy about suggesting subtle changes that might make a so so song a stunner. Of course, the decision to throw in that exotic instrument, try that swinging rhythmic rave up or add that atmospheric dynamic arrangement is always yours! Dave is that rare breed who strives to make sure everything that is released with his name associated with it is something he’d be proud of. If you want to get your album back from the pressing plant and say something along the lines of, “Holy Cow! That’s me??! I didn’t know I had it in me!!” you should give Dave Klein Recording a go. Our next album is going to be a jivey jungle juke box and Dave Klein is going to twiddle all the knobs!!
