This studio we used to record demos and a single was in actual fact a garden shed run by a printer from Purnell's Bob Rowsell. It was a four track and so tracks were bumped if any double tracking was to occur. It cost about 30 pounds for a 6 hour session. After we went there - I think we heard Moskow from Trowbridge had used it - the phone number was in the Yellow pages - the Bad Detectives went there and took some of the photos you see here. When we recorded New Age we took Dominic O'Brien who was brother of the artist who did the sleeve and badge. Peter O'Brien also took some great band photos - he took the one of Sue - so it was quite a family thing. Our single was produced by our then manager Alan. I remember him freaking out when my harmonica solos were different than the ones on the demo!

This travelogue from the 1960s gives us a stunning view of the British seaside borough of Torbay (Torquay, Brixham and Paignton) in South Devon. This holiday destination has it all from an injection of French culture to celebrities on a getaway from city life.
