The article reports on the events that took place while The Donnas were all set to record their sixth release, Gold Medal. In the beginning, it seemed like everything was falling in place. There was a collection of songs that would have pushed the quartet beyond their Ramones-meet-AC/DC soundscape, and time was booked at a high-end studio at Los Angeles, California with the renowned producer Scott Litt producing the sessions. But that's when things got a little tricky, as they could not make-up with Litt. Then they selected producer Butch Walker and found him just suitable for them.
