Supertone recently purchased a 56 way frame 48 channel analog CADAC J series recording console from the excellent Don Larking of Larking's List for their popup studio located between Hannover and Hamburg, Germany.
Simon, inhouse engineer, producer and 50% of the Starlite Campbell Band talks about the wiring and linking it to the two large Mosses and Mitchell B gauge patchbays.
He is in love...

The Starlite Campbell Band is a four piece steeped in British Blues - think Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and early Led Zeppelin. With contemporary songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60’s to early 70’s - the halcyon days of music.
Starlite and Campbell, who married after a whirlwind musical romance, released their debut album ‘Blueberry Pie’ to rave reviews worldwide and a prestigious nomination for Best Album in the European Blues Awards.
“Unquestionably Blueberry Pie is a stunning debut." 5* - Morgan Hogarth, R2 Magazine
With extensive international radioplay charting top 10 in the UK, Australia, The Netherlands and American Blues Charts and over 40 four and five star reviews worldwide, the Starlite Campbell Band leave an indelible impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
From Suzy’s addictive, fun-loving bass groove and thunderous tone to Simon’s explosive vocals and fretwork, the band is joined by keyboard maestro Jonny Henderson on Hammond/Wurlitzer (Robben Ford / Matt Schofield) and shuffle-master Steve Gibson on drums (Chris Farlowe / Larry Garner).
“Just as the Rolling Stones are making huge waves with their 30th studio release, Blue & Lonesome, along come a couple of seasoned musicians who bring back the sound of early UK blues, to near perfection.” JD Nash - American Blues Scene, USA
The art of the song is everything and Starlite and Campbell fly in the face of disposable music - writing, recording and producing their work and then releasing on their independent label Supertone Records.
“The fusion of Starlite and Campbell's vocals is superb - a truly inspired debut” Gio Pilato, Bluebird Reviews
The 2018 tour includes Linton International Blues Festival, Luxembourg and The Netherlands before heading ‘Down Under’ for a tour of Australia followed by a series of dates across the UK, which includes The Met in Bury and the world famous Half Moon in Putney.
