FON studio information wanted

Postby solarex » 09 Jan 2012 10:53

Anybody know of online resources with information on the FON studio in Sheffield? An umbrella, that as far as I can see also spawn a record store and label.

there s a programme on Sky Arts at the moment called ~~"The Beat is the Law" , about the 90 s Sheffield music scene,
which is more or less the Fon story...with interviews with a lot of the Fon gang, a few 808 mentions
film made in 2010

Looks to be yet another documentary about a slice of brilliant British indie music.

Will dig out.

Thanks.

I think there's also a DVD called "Made In Sheffield" - that may have a bit about FON Studio in that? It's a DVD on my wants list.

That's the one - as I say, dunno if it has anything about FON on there, but it's apparently a very good documentary on the Sheffield music scene regardless (Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, Heaven 17, etc).

The Beat Is The Law watched and enjoyed.

Now gotta dig out some music from Chakk and HULA.

Love these docus on British indie and underground. Very inspiring.
