What is Sonic Iguana?

Sonic Iguana Studios: Specialized in Punk Rock since 1991.
Sonic Iguana Studios: Specialized in Punk Rock since 1991.

For over 25 years, Sonic Iguana has specialized in recording punk rock music, and is by our counts the first recording studio ever built specifically for that purpose. During the last quarter century, Sonic Iguana has produced over 300 internationally distributed punk albums, generating large percentages of the catalogs of premier punk labels such as Lookout, Fat Wreck Chords, Asian Man, and several others; it has recorded, mixed or mastered music for bands including Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Alkaline Trio, Screeching Weasel, the Lillingtons, Teen Idols, the Smoking Popes, Common Rider, the Queers, the Groovie Ghoulies, Squirtgun, One Man Army, Toxic Reasons, the Huntingtons, and many more. 

Sonic Iguana Studios has a rich history in producing classic punk rock albums.

The studio may well be best recognized for production work founder Mass Giorgini has done at the studio, several other noteworthy producers have also been involved with Sonic Iguana productions, including Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Mike Kennerty of All-American Rejects, Kris Roe of the Ataris, John Strohm of the Lemonheads, and Paul Mahern, perhaps best known as producer of Iggy Pop and John Mellencamp and the singer of the Zero Boys.

The Future of Sonic Iguana

While all of that is over the course of over 25 years, I believe that we have done some of our best work ever quite recently, including fantastic albums by the Copyrights and Anti-Flag -- and we're not done yet. With your help, Sonic Iguana will be back better than ever and ready to discover and document the music of the next wave of original voices and musical innovators.

Anti-Flag's American Spring album was mastered and submixed at Sonic Iguana Studios in 2015 and featured the song "Brandenburg Gate," including a guest appearance by Tim Armstrong of Rancid.

Why Kickstarter?

The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to help bring Sonic Iguana Studios back from a series of economic and plumbing disasters, including flooding that destroyed many thousands of dollars worth of recording equipment and caused considerable damage to several parts of the building, labels failing with unpaid invoices, and a series of last-minute cancellations and equipment breakdowns. An immediate cash infusion is needed ASAP to keep Sonic Iguana Studios operational. With the funds raised, the entire post-production facility will be re-designed and rebuilt taking into account the new equipment and demands that are quite different from when the original space was created over 20 years ago.

Rise Against recorded their debut album The Unraveling (which included the song "Everchanging") at Sonic Iguana, and also returned for some additional tracks included on 2013's Long Forgotten Songs.

Some of the flooding damage to the building, which also took oak flooring, electrical circuits, and studio electronics with it.

How Can You Help?

We have put together a series of packages on Kickstarter so that you can contribute to the rebuilding and refining of Sonic Iguana--including offers for great deals on mixing and mastering packages, combo offers including studio t-shirts, a compilation disc spanning the history of Sonic Iguana recordings, top-quality instruments originally conceived at Sonic Iguana, the chance to buy what are now rare and out-of-print records produced at Sonic Iguana Studios, and, what might be most exciting, the chance to be involved in helping talented and deserving bands get their albums mixed and mastered at Sonic Iguana.

Message from Sonic Iguana founder Mass Giorgini:

While I am likely best known for my production and mastering work, just over ten years ago I began down an academic path--for personal enrichment--that led to a doctorate. During that time I've been a professor, taught at universities in three different subject matters, published articles in a few more, and have continued doing research in my field. That work effectively relegated my music work to a "part-time" occupation of around 40 hours per week--which was just enough to maintain solvency, basically keeping the studio's doors open. After all, my goal was always to help create and record great new music from talented artists, and not to maximize profits. This left Sonic Iguana vulnerable when it received a Murphy's Law-style series of economic gut-punches in the form of the aforementioned flooding, unpaid invoices, unexpected emergency cancellations, engineer turnover, equipment malfunction, and too many more such matters to list.

But—I do not want these mishaps and unfortunate circumstances to change the philosophy of Sonic Iguana. It is important to not make studio and artistic decisions based solely on the bottom line—and I believe it is essential that worthy musicians have an affordable way to record and share their music.

Be an Executive Producer!

While in the past I have offered the occasional exciting new band a pro bono master or a very low-dough mixing deal, I now want to share such chances with dedicated music supporters like yourselves, recruiting your assistance in selecting and funding the musicians that we collectively believe merit the support. For that, I’ve created the Executive Producer and Co-Executive Producer packages. In the former, I discount my work to bare bones prices, you cover the rest of the cost, and we decide together which band benefits from our shared investment in the musical future. The latter works similarly, except that two contributors together fund the financial end of the package, and the chosen artist is chosen in our committee of three.

This is Unity Music

For those who are unfamiliar with Sonic Iguana Studios, this is an independent music production and mastering facility specialized in punk rock, but also committed to a zero-tolerance policy for messages of hate, whether they be sexist, racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic or of any other type. If there is one thing this world needs most, it is less divisive rhetoric, and much, much more unity music.

Jesse Michaels (formerly of Operation Ivy) led the rocksteady/punk group Common Rider whose album This is Unity Music included the song "Firewall" and included performances by Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio. This album was recorded, mixed and mastered in its entirety at Sonic Iguana Studios.

Welcome to the Sonic Iguana Team

Thank you so much for your time, and thank you even more, in advance, for supporting Sonic Iguana Studios in this project to rebuild and make the studio better than ever before, and thereby help a whole new generation of exceptional musicians record their own albums, so that their songs may then go on and inspire the next era of rebellious and demanding music fans.

Risks and challenges

Even if fully funded, it is possible that some reconstruction and equipment repair costs far exceed the estimated costs projected in creating this budget. This is due to the fact that the extent of the damages cannot be fully known until the current structure is dismantled and examined, and a similar situation is true of the electronic gear. However, the budgeted amount is enough to guarantee to be able to get the studio operational again and even surpass its prior quality, so that any monetary shortfalls can be addressed over the long term with less urgency.

These were recorded at Sonic Iguana in 1995 just before moving into the current space occupied by the studio. These have been out of print for almost 20 years, as they sold out within two months of release. A few were found last year when reorganizing storage at the studio, and we're making them available here now. Collectors sites and punk specialty shops sell these for between $30-50, most often used and in varying condition--but we are offering a limited number of them here brand new and autographed by the band as a reward for $40 contribution level!

    Framed, original flyer (NOT a reprint) from the Screeching Weasel/Rattail Grenadier show at Spud Zero in Lafayette, Indiana on January 23, 1988. The flyer was designed by Aldo Giorgini (an acclaimed artist with 14 pieces in the Smithsonian collection and the designer of the Sonic Iguana logo). This was the night that Ben Weasel and John Jughead met Mass Giorgini and Dan Lumley--which was to be the core of the lineup of Screeching Weasel from 1997-2006. It was also the beginning of the relationship between Screeching Weasel and Mass Giorgini which led to the Screeching Weasel albums from Wiggle on having Sonic Iguana involvement (Wiggle, Anthem for a New Tomorrow, Ramones, How to Make Enemies and Irritate People, Bark Like a Dog, Television City Dream, Major Label Debut, Teen Punks in Heat, etc.) and also the retroactive remastering of the earlier albums My Brain Hurts and the debut self-titled.
