Midge Ure: shedworker

Midge Ure, he of Ultravox and Band Aid fame, has a recording studio (pictured above) at the bottom of his garden in Bath built by The Home Office Company. There's an excellent write-up in Sound on Sound magazine which describes his studio as "a modest-sized, lightweight office building sited in the garden of his home near Bath". The piece looks at the many technical aspects of setting up a high-quality recording studio in a garden office and if you're considering something similar, it's a must-read. Here's what Midge says about shedworking: "Everything I have said about recording and environments stands up now. You don't have to spend fortunes on recording. A good mic, a clean signal path and a bit of sound deadening, and you can produce world-class results."
