Tracey Ullman I know what boys like Drum Machine

Post by NewWaver12 » Fri Nov 20, 2015 10:40 pm

Hi there!
I was wondering if you've heard Tracey Ullman's I know what boys like, I like the drum sound of that record but I don't know how to recreate it, or how it was recorded in the first place... So I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. It sounds like some heavy drum machine sound with a lot of reverb, maybe some DMX-machine I don't know.
Thanks....New Waver

Pretty sure that song was done by The Waitresses. Unless Tracey Ullman did her own version.
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

It definitely was The Waitresses (in 1980, charted later), but Tracey did cover it in 1984.

Waitresses':



Tracey's:


The Waitresses probably didn't use a drum machine.

Sounds like a standard Linn with some gated reverb.
