Righto Folks – here it is…! – some pics of the ‘little rascal’ studio..Its a humble affair, but it sure works well! Link to our flickr gallery to view pictures of the build progress..
note: As you can see in the pics, I have yet to give the studio a pro paint job..Besides this and installing permanent lighting this week (temporarily using lamps), and some skirting boards – every thing is done.. I figured” Lets just set up the gear and make some noise!! its the last quarter of 2012!! I don’t need the paint job and the skirting boards done to make good music, they can wait. I do plan to install an adjustable (use when needed) vocal booth soon…
So its time to get into making and releasing some music..from the ‘littlerascal’, other artists on LRRecords and more! …stay tuned.
Will also get round to updating a studio page at www.lrrecords.com.au .
