U2's Producer Reveals Studio Secrets (From the Early 80's)

Some interesting stories from Steve Lillywhite about the recording of Boy, War and October can be found here.

Love the one about recording drums for the Boy album in the hallway of Windmill Lane Studio because they liked the "clattery" sound. But they had to wait until the receptionist went home, then they discovered once she had gone home that ringer on the phone could not be turned off so sometimes the phone would ring mid-take!

Also, the backing voices on Surrender were Kid Creole's backing singers The Coconuts who just happened to be playing in Dublin at the time.
