Burke Reid was the Canadian guitarist for dormant Aussie rock band Gerling. He’s also the producer behind many great records, including the recipient of 98,000 awards this year, Courtney Barnett’s “Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Think”. We talk about how Sonic Youth turned him on as a 12 year old, meeting the band as a pimply teenager at an Aussie festival, how their album ‘Dirty’ balances experimentation and accessibility and the process of making Courtney’s world-conquering album.
