One of the things I've always loved about Australian music is that it just doesn't quite sound like US & UK music, and Cohen was one of the architects of that sound.

Nick Cave's tribute on Facebook:

"A Tribute to Tony Cohen

Tony was pure chaos in the studio and like many geniuses a nightmare to work with. But you came back again and again because he was just so good, everything he did was so unique and bold and startling. He was a master at both what not to do in the studio and what to do in the studio. For example - donít set fire to the studio, donít sleep in the air-conditioning vents, donít not show up to the sessions for days at a time, but conversely do record music like your very life depended on it, do create sounds that no-one has ever heard before, do mix records with a courage that put every other producer in Australia to shame. He was also the funniest guy I have ever met and rising up through the narcissism and rampant insanity he had a heart just as big as a house. Australia has lost a national treasure.
