About Konk Studios
Konk Studios is a London recording studio located in leafy Crouch End at the foot of Alexandra Palace and is one of London's longest standing privately owned studios. It was established in the early 1970s by The Kinks as their private studio and a few years later opened to outside acts with the likes of the Bay City Rollers, Thin Lizzy, and the Bee Gees working here. The studio grew largely from word of mouth with a huge client list including Depeche Mode, The Stone Roses, Massive Attack and more recently The Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club and Wild Beasts.
