Fairview Studios, Hull

As previously mentioned, the compilation album, “A Perfect Combination: Fairview Studios 1973-1990” is due for release on 15 November –  an album to cover notable local bands who recorded at Fairview between 1973 and 1990.

Again, you may remember that we made our first two recordings at the Fairview Studios in Willerby, Hull – the first demo in 1981 and the Reach To Eternity/Cold As Steel single in ’82.

Many excellent artists recorded at Fairview Studios, not least Hull’s own legendary guitarist Mick Ronson and recently departed Trevor Bolder, and other rock and metal bands such as:

  • Uriah Heep
  • Def Leppard
  • Witchfynde
  • Gaskin
  • Tokyo Blade
  • Geddes Axe
  • Saracen

Local music historian, Andy Richardson, has already worked with the owner Keith Herd to release a collection of music recorded by local artists from the 1960s and early ’70s called Frontroom Masters.

We are delighted that Andy approached us to include some our music on this compilation.

You can read more about Fairview on www.fairviewrecording.co.uk – and on Wikipediawhere the Salem single is cited as a “notable recording”!

The release event/party will be at The Fruit, Hull – where are headlining – on November 15, 2013.

Thanks again to you for all your continued support! 

Keep rockin! and we’ll see you soon …

Cheers \m/
