Studio time at the Electric Eel

Adding to the Simon Jones interview posted a couple days ago, here are a few pictures and a brief description of the private studio in Richmond, England where Verve are putting together their forthcoming album:

Terry Britten's 1960’s EMI mixing console was complemented by housing his vintage equipment in 1960’s style racking systems, hand built in the Electric Eel workshop.

Traditional acoustic treatments were used in the live area which had to potentially accomodate a whole band. Sound-proofing was critical since the studio is in the twice daily flightpath of concorde.

Last September, Jones described the studio as "brimming with vintage gear, an old E.M.I desk (Pink Floyd -'Dark Side Of The Moon' era) and billions of guitars, old analogue gear, a treasure trove of effects pedals (Nick like a kid in a toy shop!)."
