2016 marked the 25th anniversary of Parr Street Studios as a hub for recording world-renowned artists from Liverpool and beyond. To mark this anniversary the studio will produce, document and release a series of 25 recording projects, one for each year of its existence.
These will highlight the heritage of the building and the wealth and breadth of artists that have recorded in the space as well as, vitally, the community, and environments surrounding the artists that pass through Parr Street’s doors and make the city an amazing space for artists to work, live and play.
In the second of a series of 25 short documentaries celebrating their 25th anniversary, Grammy-award winning Liverpool City Centre based Parr Street Studios are extremely pleased to reveal a specially commissioned short documentary charting the incredible rise of Liverpool quartet Clean Cut Kid over the last year.
Watch the full documentary here.
Following the course of the band’s whirlwind summer spent clocking up a stonking 32 festival appearances and subsequently documenting their first ever nationwide headline tour, the film culminates in their triumphant, sold out homecoming gig at Liverpool Music Week last month, recently crowned Best Metropolitan Festival 2016 at the UK Festival Awards.
In addition, just before the quartet shot back out on the road with The Courteeners as special guests on their November UK arena tour, Parr Street managed to catch up with husband and wife band members Mike and Evelyn Halls in a candid and relaxed interview to talk about recording at the studio, their recent success and much more.
The band’s latest single ‘Make Believe’ is out now through their own Babe Magnet Records/Polydor – watch the official video here
Tickets for their forthcoming 2017 headline tour are on sale now here.
Further episodes featuring high profile collaborations, in depth genre features and exclusive live sessions will be announced over the comings months.
