HMV Our Price and Woolworths were gateways that only allowed what the record labels had to offer and charged 100% markup on a CD. £16/18/20 or an album? Get real! I love the fact that I can at any point find a new band and listen to them through Bandcamp, Spotify and other outlets and support them directly without the labels, distributors and others coming in and taking a massive whack for doing very little.

I love that chart success is exactly what it should be. Inconsequential. Look at people like Amanda Palmer and others making way more money than they ever did on record labels. We are now able to live off our means if we are prepared to learn some of the business side of things or as Amanda did. Get in touch with the fans and really work the social media thing hard.

Any others think this is a great period to make and listen to music in?

Hey guys,

Firebird Studios here. Just thought we'd get online and show you what we're all about. If you haven't used us before then we're a 6 room rehearsal studio based in Brislington. Myself and my wife Naomi took the place over 7 months ago and have been renovating ever since. We've repainted, recarpeted, bought in some new equipment given the place a bit of tlc and we think it's looking pretty awesome now.

We've also developed the cafe section of the studio and have installed a two group Rancilio coffee machine so you can get a proper cup of coffee here as well as home made cakes, paninis and all the usual crisps, cans and sweets.

We also wanted to know what you guys wanted from a studio. We want it to be something that you look forward to coming to and if there's something we're not doing that would make you come here then we want to know! Most people have asked about beer and we're looking into getting a licence so we can sell that, but anything else and we're all ears!

Here's a piccie to show you what it's looking like around here.

Hope you like what you see and hope to see you around here soon.


Charlie and Naomi.
