A particularly memorable day in the company of Mark Batchelor, as we toured the world-famous Abbey Road recording studios, thanks to an event marking the premises’ ninety years since its opening in 1931.
A visual feast of equipment, including a range of fascinating microphones, instruments and desks, had been laid out in Studios 1 and 2, whilst films and playbacks were being presented in the world-class surroundings of Studio 3. A fascinating insight into the history and work of the Studios.
The evening found us across town at The Night Owl in Finsbury Park, courtesy of an invitation to the Shindig! Magazine’s ‘Happening!’
The magazine aims to offer “A publication put together with genuine understanding, sincerity and utter belief. We bring the scope and knowledge of old fanzines and specialist rock titles to a larger readership.”
The event was running from 8pm through until 4am and is the first of a brand new monthly club night. Good to catch up with the magazine’s editor Jon Mills and noted music journalist Will Hodgkinson. Thanks everyone!
