      Hi there,

      I need to record 2 guitar tracks and get a final mix done before sorting out the masters for my band's first 7" release. Can anyone recommend a good, cheap and punk-friendly studio, preferably in the East/South East of the UK? Well-equipped home studios are OK too!

      Thanks!

      Chris

      Thanks for all the advice guys!

      I've heard State stuff and the sound quality really is terrific. But let me throw a complication into the pot (and sorry for being a techno ignoramus). Our members are scattered from LA to Toronto so we will never be in the same room together. The bass, drums and vocs are already recorded (digitally). Just my guitar to be re-recorded, then the whole thing mixed. Is that possible, or does the whole thing have to be analog in an analog studio??

      Dumb question I know but this is my first time sticking a record together!

      Having a lot of State Records stuff I'd say that sounds like a really good bet Chris. The sound is always spot on with anything that's recorded at Sandgate.

      Hi Chris, come to Sandgate Sound Studios, just outside Folkestone in Kent. We record to 8-track half-inch tape, £100 a day plus tape costs. I doubt you'll find cheaper than that for the sound quality - most State Records stuff has been recorded there (Higher State, Paul Messis, Groovy Uncle, Suzi Chunk, Galileo 7, Hidden Masters etc etc).

      Give me a shout if you're interested!

      We went to Ranscome studios in Rochester down on the Medway. Jim Riley's a bit of a local legend in the old Medway garage scene and has recorded Billy Childish many times.

      Fran at Happy Beat is good! He's the guy who has done the mastering on all of the Hideout Comps.

      We have released a single by Wobbly Lamps which was recorded and mastered by Seamus Wong Studio in Leicester. They are going back there at the end of the month to record their second EP.
