Tom Dalgety

The British producer has helmed a series of stellar rock records, earning Grammy and BRIT Award nominations along the way. He talks Gary Walker through his highlights


Things are looking up: Tom is currently one of rock’s most in-demand rock producers

One of the UK’s most in-demand producers, Tom Dalgety has quickly built a reputation for making riff-heavy rock records with universal appeal. Starting out with stints at NAM and Riverside studios near his home in Frome, Somerset, it wasn’t long before the Oxford-born producer was running his own show and working with a series of A-list artists. While working at the iconic Rockfield in South Wales, he met an early incarnation of Royal Blood, and before you could ask “how are two people making such an epic racket?” had helped the Brighton duo record a pair of No.1 albums that breathed new life into British rock music. Next came records with industrial metal titans Killing Joke and bona fide legends of quiet-loud Pixies, and his CV already includes a BRITS nomination for best producer and the 2016 MPG Award for Breakthrough Producer Of The Year. When we speak to Tom, he’s fresh from a trip to the Grammys in Los Angeles, where his work with Swedish metallers Ghost resulted in a pair of nominations for Best Rock Record and Best Rock Song. He’s also one of the nicest men in music. Rock on, Tom…

About Long Live Vinyl

In our cover story, we look back at The Stones Roses' classic 1989 debut album 30 years on from its release. Producer John Leckie takes us inside the making of the record and Peter Hook reveals how he would have made it sound even better. We also count down the 60 greatest debut albums of all time, from Are You Experienced to Unknown Pleasures. Elsewhere, the irrepressible Bobby Gillespie guides us through Primal Scream’s new best-of collection, Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll, Kevin Morby explains why a concept album about religion might be the best record he’s ever made, and we meet the outrageously talented Aldous Harding to hear about joyful new LP Designer. We also profile the legendary Stiff Records and take an in-depth look at The Cure’s Disintegration – which turns 30 this year as the band prepare to headline Glastonbury. Legendary photographer Norman Seeff recalls shooting Blondie, Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones, and if that's not enough we bring you the widest range of new album, reissue, turntable and accessory reviews anywhere on the newsstand. Long Live Vinyl is THE magazine for vinyl lovers.
