Our rural idyll sends rockers back in time

I’M always interested in the impressions that people get when visiting Henley.

New York rock band Public Access T.V. recorded part of their new album at Doghouse Studios, near Shiplake, while spending last summer in England as their apartment in Manhattan had burned down while they were on tour.

The rest was recorded in New York, Nashville and London but it was here they most enjoyed.

The studios, which belong to original Jethro Tull drummer Barrie Barlow, are tucked away by the River Thames off Bolney Road.

In an interview with diymag.com, the band say: “It was real luxurious being out in the country. Some nights when we were driving to the studio there was some kind of crazy rich people parties on the water. We didn’t partake in any of that.



“We were living in the house too. The area that we slept in was a bunked area in the attic basically, so we’d get up and mosey downstairs to the studio and then work ’til we pretty much just went upstairs to pass out and then do it again the next day.

“So that was really cool because I’ve never been in that kind of situation where you’re just totally isolated from the world, recording in a studio [and] living there.

“It felt ridiculous; it felt like were in a time machine making a record in the Seventies.”

By the way, the album is called Never Enough and will be released on September 23.
