RMS Studios began here in South Norwood as a 4 track in 1977, grew to 8, then 16 tracks in ’82, 24 in 2000, and now we’ve lost count. We have produced hundreds of successful releases over the years, including tracks on The Damned’s Machine Gun Etiquette and the album So Tough by St. Etienne, which reached number seven in the charts. Recent highlights have been recording Chris Shields’ nine piece band live (twelve tracks in a day!) and the return of The Boomtown Rats. Last year we recorded (among many other things) an album for The Cute Hoors and another for Roadhouse (their tenth here?), and a lovely acoustic album with Wizz Jones and Pete Berryman which should be out about now. This year we’re looking forward to more bands, more mastering and more spoken word!
We pride ourselves on consistently high quality and excellent value in a relaxed and creative atmosphere. The studios take up the ground floor of two adjoining buildings. There are kitchen areas and a beautiful garden to relax in. We have daylight in every room, easy equipment loading, and free parking outside.
I hope this website gives you an idea of our capabilities, and that we can be of use to you in the future. Please feel free to phone us on 020 8653 4965 or email us if you’d like to visit.
