Prince Studios


A shocking night at Prince Studios on 30th Street.

It was a shocking night at a new Studio called Prince Studios in the 251 West 30th Street Music Building where it seemed that all poor NYC musicians came to play.  Prince was on the 4th floor right next to Ultra Sound.  It was a shocking night for us.  There were two nice looking beat up Fender amps but no reverb to be found any where in either of them.  The room was a recording room so the walls were absorbent with no reverb to be found and the PA while strong was also with out reverb.  With all this dryness it gave us a surprisingly dry controlled sound.  It was a drastic change from the sound we have at Carolls.  

To me the most shocking thing was the PA system.  Twice I touched it and got two nasty 110 volt shocks.  I'm still tingling.  That put a little damper on the evening for me as my hair stood up straight and I was going into cardiac arrest.  It took a couple of hours to get over the shock and I was no where near touching a microphone for the rest of the night.  hey did you guys do that on purpose?

Well it's the survival of Deadstein that is at stake any we will get by.  In the room were Larry, Trister, Kevin, Dave, Tom and Rich who was late after meeting with the Bulgarian Ambassador.  There were good moments and bad ones and while the bad were bad the good were good. 

Till next Tuesday at Smash Studios.
