Steve Fisk is something of a Pacific Northwest legend, and a cult favorite around the globe. In 1982 he joined the instrumental rock band Pell Mell
who released some records on SST and twelve years later, in 1994, Pell Mell released the critically acclaimed Interstate on Geffen Records. Though Fisk has worked with the likes of Nirvana
, he is perhaps most revered for his production work with Beat Happening
and on the first four Screaming Trees
records. His real creative juices, however, were unleashed via his own pioneering work with samples and tape manipulation - even if he insists it was only a sideline.
