The Fridge Studio
The Fridge was Contact 89FM's recording studio, but was also used by a plethora of bands. Bands to record albums and live to airs on Contact at the Fridge included Grok, Nodrog, Hand of Glory, Big Muffin Serious Band and an incredible number of others. The Hamilton compilation CD The Fridge was entirely recorded in the studio. The desk was 8-track analogue and the room was actually an old industrial fridge, with no windows and complete with big fridge doors.
The Fridge was revived in 2009 by Contact 88.1FM. The Shrugs recorded a single in the studio and Dynamo Go used the space to work on their 2010 Poor Alfred single. After purchasing new recording gear, The Fridge officially opened again as a fully functional studio in November 2010. The first band to record in the newly set up studio was Penelope The.
