This is where Johnny Rotten threw up into the piano.

Location: 106A Highbury New Park, Highbury, N5 2DW

Description: This is where The Clash recorded London Calling in August 1979 - studios, converted from an old church between Islington and Stoke Newington with Bill Price and Guy Stevens.

It's where the Sex Pistols recorded 'Never Mind The Bollocks', and Johnny Rotten threw up into the piano and his dried vomit had to be painstakingly scraped off by some lackie.

Queen recorded here in the 1970's as well.

It was a Bosendorfer. Better men than Johnny Rotten threw up in that studio. (Richard Hill)

After Johnny rotten vomited into the piano (I believe it was a Bosendorfer concert grand, many thousands of pounds worth), for some time the smell in the studio must have been pretty rotten! (Ewan O'Doherty)
