    Mojo Club, Yorkshire

    (I have a picture, but the URL is insane)

    Sheffield is rather important for birthplaces,etc of artists we love.

    Mojo started off as northern soul around '67 but Stringfellow later moved it into the new psychedelia fad.

    Speaking of Hendrix......

    Air Studios Monserrat, ravaged by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and closed up at that time. Today, ashes from pyroclastic flows have helped to deteriorate it further.

    In 1979, The Beatles producer George Martin opened AIR Studios Montserrat, which resulted in musical artists such as Dire Straits, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, The Police, Elton John, Jimmy Buffett and The Rolling Stones visiting the island to record albums.

    Boleskine House, Scotland

    Home of the notorious Crowley.



    Although in Jimmy Page's ownership from '70-'92, I doubt much was recorded there. Page rarely occupied it.

    Boleskine was in the news recently as there are plans to turn it into holiday accommodation. Someone on Twitter was asserting that Jimmy and Robert wrote Stairway to Heaven there, and that they received the lyrics by automatic writing.

    It's reckoned Jim spent no more than six weeks there in total. I doubt Robert ever went anywhere near the place.

    That would explain the nonsensical lyrics.

    The legendary PUK studios (at least in Denmark) burned down yesterday. They were big in the 80'ties, and recorded mainly pop.

    There were not many real studios i Denmark in the beginning of prog, so cinemas was used.
    VanlÝse Bio was one of them and some 'legenadary' albums were recorded here.

    This is from the recording of Alrune Rod's first album. Denmarks answer to Kraut. Their 2 first albums were excellent !

    If you can get it translated (http://itools.com/tool/google-transl...age-translator) you will read that the place was empty, so only buildings was destroyed.
    It was big, hotels, swimming pools...

    Very few studios that size exist today, production methods have changed.

    So no equipment was lost?
    That is at least some relief.

    I think Wisseloord still exists. Alas I couldn't find pictures from the building. Steve Hackett has recorded there and also Kayak.

    No equipment, gold-records, etc. (or people) were lost, just memories. Which makes a bit strange why it caught fire.

    The sound they liked was something like Toto, and their business changed when Grunge became popular with a raw and less polished sound.

    Perhaps someone decided it would bu fun to burn the place down? I mean, there are enough idiots on this planet.

    I have the first 4 Alrune Rod lps. They are all excellent.

    ....


    For a country the size of Denmark, the '68-'71 psych scene was rather remarkable. (I suspect a lot of band-interbreeding.)
    The same goes for Belgium.


    I'd like to see an early rock family tree for Denmark/Belgium.
