We need help in saving "the neve": the one of a kind mixing board responsible for the world changing recordings from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Blind Melon and more at the London Bridge studio in Shoreline in the early 90s. This famous and historic studio is offering one of a kind tours to the public, signed Fleet Foxes recordings, signed drum heads, and most amazing yet, an opportunity for your name to be permanently engraved on one of the most amazing pieces of musical history- "the neve".

We would love your help to spread the word on on saving the "Seattle Sound" http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/be-a-part-of-seattle-rock-history

thanks!


Help Preserve The "Seattle Sound" At London Bridge Studio

The long-beloved, globally-adored “Seattle Sound” is made up of many elements, and one of the most noteworthy is in how music is recorded at London Bridge Studio.

World-changing, monumentally successful, and scene-defining recordings from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Temple Of The Dog, Mother Love Bone, Blind Melon, Candlebox, and 3 Doors Down were created in the warm, analog cavern of Seattle’s London Bridge Studio. More recent bands include Fleet Foxes, Minus the Bear, Death Cab for Cutie, Mary Lambert, Cat Power, Brandi Carlile, One Republic , and so many other artists. The idea of a studio as a collaborative instrument is proven by London Bridge Studio’s track record, with help from its vaulted ceilings, an expansive floor to ceiling brick wall the width of the room -- and above all, the classic and extremely rare 1973 Neve 8048 Mixing Board.

The rich essence of globally adored music from London Bridge Studio has everything to do with the Neve. Over 2500 hours and several laborers were dedicated to hand-wiring and fabricating the Neve Mixing Board, built in a way that is deemed too expensive in this digital age. Now the Neve needs to be completely refurbished to be accessible to the music community for another 40 years.

The Neve has been responsible in helping to make history with releases such as Soundgarden's GRAMMY-winning Louder Than Love, Pearl Jam's multi-platinum debut Ten, and countless influential recordings that account for a total of over 25 million records sold. It has been in use nearly every day since its installation in 1985. Repairs are costly and have become more frequent.

London Bridge Studio owners Eric Lilavois, Geoff Ott, and Jonathan Plum, have seriously weighed and discussed fervently their options for the Neve; the studio needs some help in keeping its big heart beating.

“We came to the consensus that the Neve was simply too important to the Seattle music community to replace it,” said Lilavois, “Rather than raise our studio rates and make the studio inaccessible to the local and global music community, we're inviting those interested in preserving this rich history to take part in the restoration and help ensure this board's accessibility for another 40 years."

Based on the feedback from countless artists, musicians, and music fans familiar with London Bridge Studio’s historical significance, Ott, Plum, and Lilavois believe that the community can come together and ensure the inspirational sound people love coming out of Seattle retains that intimate, history-soaked, expansive range and depth, qualities that only recording at London Bridge with the Neve can provide. “The board is so warm sounding, it’s just built to make music," Plum said. “There are but a few left in the US .”

Through the campaign they have launched on the fundraising website Indiegogo.com, London Bridge Studio is raising $75,000 for the restoration and longterm preservation of the Neve.

“We’re asking our community for support,” said Ott. “The importance of the Neve and its historical significance can provide opportunities for generations of artists to come.”

“You know, it's the difference between listening to an old record on an old stereo versus listening to something off of your iPod. It really suits rock 'n' roll. I think musicians like me are drawn to those older desks, not just because they're legend and lore but also because they do something really specific that is hard to emulate or re-create digitally." --Dave Grohl
For a contribution to the cause you can be a part of Seattle music’s future. There is an exciting assortment of perks that range from a limited print “Team Neve” t-shirt to a $15K perk in which you can have your music recorded and produced by Rick Parashar, producer of Pearl Jam, Blind Melon, Temple of the Dog, and Alice in Chains, and co-founder of London Bridge Studio.

Our personal favorite perk is a name, quote, or dedication, permanently engraved on the fully restored Neve for $250 (there is a limited amount of engravings available.)
