Robin Guthrie Career Snapshots

Career Snapshots


Guthrie oversees the recording of the title track of the Cocteau Twins' EP The Spanglemaker. It's the first time in the studio with bassist Simon Raymonde

Another cut from the Cocteau Twins' EP The Spanglemaker, the edited 7in single of 'Pearly-Dewdrops Drops' actually peaks at No 29 in the UK Top 30 charts

Felt ask Guthrie to produce their fourth studio LP, Ignite The Seven Cannons. On release, the song 'Primitive Painters' is the band's most successful single

Guitar feedback, dub, free jazz and much studio experimentation as Guthrie works with A R Kane on their Lollita EP, the group's first release on the 4AD label

The first of two Edwyn Collins solo singles produced by Guthrie, 'Don't Shilly Shally' should have been a UK Top 30 hit – but it wasn't

Something of an unlikely choice to capture Gun Club's blues-punk assault on tape, but Guthrie's work on Mother Juno puts the band on the map

Guthrie works with Lush on their debut EP Mad Love. More polished-sounding than their previous releases, it enters the UK charts at No 55
