Dave Stewarts Church Studios



Dave Stewarts Church Studios

The Eurythmics Sweet Dreams Studio's and star attraction.

Location: 145H Crouch Hill, Crouch End, London, N8 9QH

Description: In the early 1980's The Church here was owned by Bob Bura and John Hardwick, the animators who made Camberwick Green and Captain Pugwash, who had converted part of it as a studio.

In 1982, Bura and Hardwick stopped Dave Stewart in the street and offered him some working space in their studio building. Stewart and Annie Lennox moved in and completed their Eurythmics debut Sweet Dreams here.

Later on Stewart and Lennox took over the whole of the building, named it The Church Studios, and also bought the house next door.

Dave Stewart once told Bob Dylan that the next time he was in London he should drop by his recording studio here in Crouch End.

Dylan, at a loose end one afternoon, decided to take him up on it and asked a taxi driver to take him to Crouch End Hill. All the roads have similar names and he dropped off at an adjacent road.

Dylan knocked at the front door and asked the woman who answered if Dave
was in. As it happened, her husband was also called Dave, so she said: No,
he's out on a call at the moment, and Bob said he'd wait. Twenty minutes
later, Dave - the plumber, not the rock star - returned and asked the
missus whether there were any messages. No, she said, but Bob Dylan's in the living room having a cup of tea.

Back in the late 80s I was in a rock/pop band that recorded some demos at the Church Studio. I just found the old cassette tape of those sessions in a recent house move. Time has diminished my chances of recalling much more information other than Im sure I was the bass player!!! (Graeme Finlayson)

My uncle took me here in 2003 to show me the church he once used. As the saying goes Bobs (Bura) my uncle. (Mike Baynes)
