Totally awesome bloke, totally awesome place in the middle of the New Forest. All analogue if you're into that sort of thing. Had a shift around of stuff between our two sessions there, sounded different (not as rough) but still great.

A bunch of Southampton bands and Facel Vega also recorded there, as did Electric Wizard for their earlier stuff (Dopethrone!).

The most recent Year Of The Flood EP was tracked at Stuck On A Name in Nottingham, all mixing I did myself on my home setup.

Seems like pretty much everyone has recorded with Boulty and Phil nowadays, and with good reason!

Hello Paul!

he's moved to a new studio called Lightship 95 (it's on a boat)? I think, Ross or any of the Pang boys will have his details.

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Hello,

http://laboitediabolique.bandcamp.com/a … chocolates

This was recorded by Ian Boult at Stuck On A Name studios in Nottingham.

Mixed and mastered by me.

We did this in 2 days, Boulty is a legend.

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Your Name: Scott

Band's Name: Pissed On Pissed Off

Record(s) Name: Undecided as of yet - part of a split 7"

Recording Studio Name: None. It was a mobile unit in our regular practice room.

Location?: See previous answer.

What rate did you pay?: Flat £100

Studio Engineer: Bill Nelson

Mix Engineer: Bill Nelson (with me nagging him)

How would you describe the sound they gave you?: It wasn't really the sound he 'gave us'. Usually Bill works in a metal style with clarity as precision as a goal whereas we were going for a lo-fi, dynamic, live sound.

What would have liked more/less of?: We should've really double-tracked the guitars (I wanted to but was outvoted for time - ie:-we never had any!)

Was the studio a comfortable environment?: Not particularly, it's small. Normally we probably would've used Bill's basement studio (Bawbee Studio) but he's in the middle of a refurb.

Would you/Have you used the studio since?: We might, it's pretty early to say yet.

Other comments: A good thing was Bill was prepared to do as we asked despite much of it being in disagreement with how he would've usually done things. There was a wee bit of confusion along the way but we sorted it out without any hassle.

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

I work with this studio a lot and I have nothing but good things to say about the quality
of recordings and mixes coming from them. Reasonably priced as well considering the equipment/engineering standards which are very high. (Based in Birmingham)

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Hey, debut record released august 25th 2012. check it out at www.gonzomorales.com

Your Name: Chris
Band's Name: Gonzo Morales
Record(s) Name: Gonzotown: Prologue - The end of Morales
Recording Studio Name: Recorded in our rehearsal room by ourselves
Location?: Somewhere in Gonzotown
What rate did you pay?: Just rent for the room, borrowed a lot, and bought a few low end mics etc.
Studio Engineer: We spent hours and days doing this ourselves ...
Mix Engineer: Gert Oestrich
How would you describe the sound they gave you?: Gert really made this record sound great, he was able to create a mix that had an old-school feel to it, whilst making the damn thing pop out the loudspeakers!
What would have liked more/less of?: I am generally really happy with the whole result, and the process was an enormous learning experience!
Was the studio a comfortable environment?: not really, it was recorded in our rehearsal room, so every now and then, our noisy neighbors would decide to practise very loudly, meaning we had to lay down guitar tracks in between their breaks! all in all, DIY is usually not comfortable, but the result is what matters!
Would you/Have you used the studio since?: We intend to continue recording albums ourselves until we can afford, and feel we need to go into a high-end studio ...
Other comments: The whole making of this album has been an incredible experience, we learnt so much, and all in all, it was a long but f***ing great year !!

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Anyone down south might wanna consider EMPORA studios in Newhaven (near Brighton)

http://www.emporarecordings.co.uk/

Mark who runs it drums in my band and did our whole demo.

http://broker.bandcamp.com/

Totally great to work with and obviously very pro. Definitely understands the kind of music he records.  Had to do a lot of crap dad rock and pop stuff to pay bills but slowly starting to get bands more his cup of tea in who give good reports.
Got an amazing stairwell which makes drums sound massive, totally great for raw live stuff but with no sacrifice in quality.  Check out some samples.

How would you describe the sound they gave you?: Awesome, nasty, heavy, exactly what we needed. Tried several approaches to recording parts over the years apparently, has always worked out well.

What would have liked more/less of?: Seemed all good to me.

Was the studio a comfortable environment?: Very much so. As the name suggests it is a bunker but it's cosy rather than claustrophobic

Would you/Have you used the studio since?: It's the band's go-to place really especially as we're Londoners

Other comments: http://thesoundbunker.co.uk/ - does many kinds of music, heard some excellent samples of drone and acoustic stuff. The other recording guy does hip hop stuff too

What would have liked more/less of?: No grumbles, location, cost and Wayne were worth every penny.
Was the studio a comfortable environment?: Its not a huge space but its comfortable.
Would you/Have you used the studio since?: Going back in March!
Additional comments: the studio was built by Wayne and the rest of the Death Pedals boys with their bare heads, but has been done to a professional level. Impressive stuff.

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

Exactly what he said ^. Bear Bites Horse. It doesn't neeeeed a mix after Wayne is finished with your track. Strange but true.

Re: WHO RECORDED YOUR RECORDS?

(Raze*Rebuild record) Recorded, mixed, mastered by Sam Bates at Ladder Factory Studio, Shrivenham, nr Swindon.

Great guy, really knows his stuff. Reasonable rates. We wouldn't go anywhere else (unless we had boatloads of cash, in which case we'd be tapping up Bill Stevenson at Blasting Rooms, but who wouldnt!)
