Don Zientara Reveals the Origins of Inner Ear Studio

Don: The Slickee Boys were playing at the time. And they…asked me… “Hey, if you got an extra roll of tape can you just record us?” I did. I had a roll of tape and, uh, I recorded them. And Skip Groff, was their manager. And, he came over when it was finished to mix it with them. And, he saw the setup. And he wasn’t disgusted by it. So, um, he brought other bands in. Like the Teen Idles… and, later on, Minor Threat…. and…later on the Bad Brains. And, uh, it just sort of evolved from there where it got a reputation for recording good punk bands!
