Eel Pie Studios

The Eel Pie Recording Studios, formerly Oceanic, were not located on the River Thames's Eel Pie Island but on the mainland in Ranelagh Drive by Twickenham Bridge.[1] Originally a 1960s boathouse its riverside venue allowed Pete Townshend to commute there by boat having lost his driving licence. From 1981 the studios were run as a commercial operation and were the location for a number of notable rock and pop recordings. Eel Pie Studios' artists include Pete Townshend, A-ha, Rachel Fuller and Michael Cuthbert. In the 1990s, the studio was occupied by the band Cocteau Twins, who called it September Sound, and The Lightning Seeds. Pete Townshend sold the studios in 2008 and the building is now a private house.
