Did you know the mixing desk at the Manics’ Door To The River studio, pictured, was originally sited at Rockfield in the 1970s?

“We’ve tried to figure out the records that have been recorded using it,” said James Dean Bradfield. “So far we know that two Simple Minds albums were recorded on it – Empires And Dance and Sons And Fascination, I believe.

“We know that Farewell To Kings by Rush was definitely done on it, which sealed the deal for Nick because he’s a super mega Rush fan.

“We’ve also established a small part of Bohemian Rhapsody was recorded using it.

“And what is amazing for me is that Heaven Up Here by Echo and the Bunnymen was recorded using it – one of the best British albums of all time.

“It’s a brilliant desk. It’s certainly got some pedigree. For us, there are definitely ghosts in that desk.”
