HOUSE OF MOOK STUDIO NEWS
LOCKDOWN ANNOUNCEMENT ON 4TH JANUARY 2021
WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING GUIDANCE AS TO WHETHER WE WILL BE PERMITTED TO REMAIN OPEN AS A WORKPLACE FOR MUSICIANS UNDER THE TERMS OF THE LOCKDOWN WHICH HAS JUST BEEN ANNOUNCED. WE HOPE TO HAVE AN UPDATE VERY SOON.
After a lengthy bout of Rip Van Winkling Mook Records is proud to announce a new release: It's the one and only Percy back with their album "Sleepers Wake". It's currently available as a digital release through itunes or their own bandcamp page. We'll keep you posted when the full physical release is scheduled. In the meantime there's an excellent and comprehensive review of the album by Trust The Wizards here.
We were very pleased to welcome The Cribs to the Mookhouse at the end of July 2017 to record an additional track for the Japanese release of their current album. Check out the photos on our Facebook page.
And veteran Dutch group Eton Crop popped in for an afternoon's rehearsal in the Orange Room, appropriately enough, ahead of their British tour with Sink Ya Teeth in October 2018. Lovely folk, one and all.
Geoffrey Oi!Cott's raucous walk-on music for darts player Garry Thompson was a talking point again during the coverage of the 2013 World Championships on BBC TV. Unfortunately he didn't progress beyond the first round in 2014 (and subsequent years?!) But you can still check out the video of them recording the song in a Christmas stylee here at House of Mook!Respect to Kleine Schweine for getting the one and only Tom Robinson to do an impromptu performance of 2-4-6-8 Motorway whilst he was at the Mookhouse in August 2012 contributing guest vocals to their debut album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR-Yw-dOo9A
Further respect to them for persuading Phil Mook to contribute some shouty bvs too!!
As well as Phil Mook's work recording The Cribs and many others, including most of the Mook Records' releases , House of Mook was the base for Whiskas (Forward Russia guitarist and Dance to the Radio founder) to produce a number of projects including the afore-mentioned Kleine Schweine album, as well as recordings for Sam Airey, Blood Oranges, Soul Circus, Vacant Kiss, Arthur Rigby & The Baskervilles, to name but a few. And we continue to offer a very special rate of only £150 for a 10 hour day's recording, (which is what we charged when we first opened over 15 years ago!!) Call or email us soon.
a fast, cheap (but high quality) demo, or maybe some extra songs
for whichever online social media window you favour?
Here's our regularly updated list of available slots over the next week or so.

Please phone 0113 230 4008 if you want to book a session or email us. If it's a fairly last minute booking though, it's always best to phone!
