A new documentary looking at the history of Rockfield Studios in Wales is to air on BBC Four in the UK this coming Saturday, July 18th.

A stellar cast of musicians who’ve called the studio home over the years will help tell the story of the studio which first opened its doors in 1963 – these include Liam Gallagher, who with Oasis recorded the monster hit album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? there; Chris Martin, who began work on Coldplay’s debut LP Parachutes at Rockfield; and Ozzy Osbourne, who also laid down some of his earliest work with Black Sabbath at the facility.

“You lived there and you didn’t leave the studio until you had your album finished,” Gallagher says. “It’s like the Big Brother house, but with tunes.” Martin recalls it being, ‘very much like some sort of musical Hogwarts, we were sent away to figure it out’, while Ozzy concludes:

“Just to go from Birmingham to Monmouth was an adventure. You don’t understand, we’d never been in a studio, we’d never been on a farm!”
