The History of Rooster
Rooster Studios first opened its doors for business in 1981 and, from the humble platform of a Soundcraft console and a battered 3M 16 track recorder, it grew rapidly to become a 32 track digital studio by the mid eighties.  Owner Nick Sykes brought a roster of clients from his earlier freelance work to create a vibrant, mid priced studio.  By the late 80s a veritable 'who's who' of the current pop business had passed through Rooster's door.  Amongst these were Kajagoogoo, The Cocteau Twins, Go West, Nick Heyward, The Divine Comedy, 12th Night and many others. With continuing upgrades introducing Radar and DAW systems, success continued through the 90's and 00's as up and coming bands such as Jamiroquai and The Mystery Jets came through it's doors. Rooster continues to exceed expectations with its' outstanding sound quality, productive atmosphere and nostalgic charisma.
