In last month’s newsletter we reported that York-based Melrose Yard Studios was critically affected by the Boxing Day floods. Russ Hepworth-Sawyer from MOTTOsound went to York to meet studio owner Sam Holdstock and engineer, Dominic Smith to find out how the rebuild is going.
Walking into the quaint yard space within the historic York city walls on a dry February morning, you’d never think that a major flood, said by many to be the worst in living memory, had devastated this area on Boxing Day 2015. Melrose Yard’s studio building was under fifteen inches of water! It destroyed all the raised acoustic floors, low level soundproofing, rehearsal amplifiers (some good Fender amps), drums and much of the electrical and audio wiring in the building.
