    I just bought the new album today and when i was looking inside the casing for the CD, I noticed that in the ‘Thanks to’ section, Jim Roth, one of the guitarists in Built to Spill was mentioned. I was wondering if anyone had any idea about why he is mentioned or what how he contributed to the album.

    Dino and Built to Spill have played several dates together. Jim builds effect pedals. Maybe Jim built one for J….just a guess.

    This interview in Premier Guitar confirms it 🙂 – http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issue/2011/Apr/J_Mascis_Unplugged_and_Unfazed_But_Not_Unfuzzed.aspx

    “Songs like “Where Are You,” “Can I,” and “What Happened” feature distorted guitar parts. Were they recorded with acoustic or electric guitars?

    It’s acoustic through a fuzz pedal.

    All of it?

    Yeah.

    And which fuzz pedal did you use for those parts?

    I think a lot of those parts were recorded when I was using a fuzz that Jim Roth, the guitarist in Built to Spill, made. I think it’s a copy of a Tone Bender, although I don’t know which one, MKI or MKII.”
