Konk Studios was set up by the UK group The Kinks in 1971 in Hornsey not far from Muswell Hill, famous Kinks territory.

Apart from The Kinks artists who have recorded there include The Kooks, BlurElvis CostelloSteve Winwood, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Tears for Fears, The Cure, Teardrop Explodes, The Bee Gees and many more.

The English Indie rock group The Kooks recorded their album Konk at the studios. The album reached no 1 in the UK charts.

Ray Davies thought about selling the studio in 2010 but in 2011 he said he had another album to do. We’ll find out I guess after the album is completed if the studio will be demolished or not.
