Lafayette musician Christian Mader gives us this Tuesdays's Top 5. Top 5 unorthodox recording techniques with Christian Mader (of the band Brass Bed).
 
1. Using a bass cabinet as a microphone for a bass cabinet. That's right: cab on cab action.
2. McCartney's celery chomping on the original "Smile."
3. The old Radio Shack mic through a cheap compression pedal. Garage rock city.
4. Echo Chambers (unfortunately they've only recently become unorthodox).
5. One overhead mic + Steven Drozd = psych - pop John Bonham.
