Since founding his Dub Narcotic recording studio in 1993, he has produced and engineered recordings by many bands and artists. Kurt Cobain cited Beat Happening's Jamboree as one of his favorite records,and even got the K Records logo (a small "K" in a shield) tattooed on his arm to "try and remind him to stay a child"
