Chris Kimsey, the man who engineered Frampton comes Alice and has worked on every Rolling Stones album since "Some Girls", is opening the doors to his experience when recording Marillion's "Misplaced Childhood" studio album, which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year.
He will be hosting the interactive session, which forms part of "The Inside Track" series, at The Indulgence Show, London's newest audio and lifestyle entertainment event returning to Novotel Conference Centre in Hammersmith, on Saturday 30 September in the Bourg Suite, Mezzanine Floor.
Visitors interested in hearing more about the British rock band's most successful album to date can join Chris from 2.00pm - 2.40pm. He will be sharing his insights on how he recorded and produced the ground-breaking album during the spring of 1985 at Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin.
The album, featuring Marillion's two most successful singles, 'Kayleigh' and piano-led 'Lavender', climbed the UK charts and quickly became number one, spending a total of 41 weeks in this position and gaining Platinum status.
Chris' illustrious career has spanned four decades and has seen him work with Led Zeppelin, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Deacon Blue and The London Symphony Orchestra. His journey in the industry began at Olympic Studios in Barnes. His mentor at Olympic was Keith Grant, who taught him everything he needed to know during the daytime film soundtrack sessions for such classics as The Italian Job, Get Carter and The Thomas Crown Affair. During the night-time pop sessions, Glyn Johns helped Chris cut his teeth on albums for The Small Faces and The Eagles.
Vernon Hamblin, producer of The Indulgence Show, says, "Bands don't get much bigger than The Stones, Led Zep and Marillion and Chris has been responsible for much of what we have heard from these giants. It's a pleasure to be able to welcome him again to The Indulgence Show to share his stories from the recording studios with the visitors to the show." He continues, "Bringing names like this to the event puts entertainment and an informative focus right at its heart, moving it away from the traditional static exhibition into something much more interactive and fun - putting the show into The Indulgence Show."
The Indulgence Show, London's newest lifestyle entertainment event, is returning to Novotel Conference Centre in Hammersmith, from 29 September - 1 October 2017, to bring visitors high-end luxury products including cars, motorised recreational vehicles, home entertainment products, headphones and much more. The event, which is designed to appeal to discerning consumers with high disposable income, will be bigger and better than ever with new and exciting exhibitors joining the line-up demonstrating brands such as Sony, Porsche Design; Devialet; Classic Car Club; Ely Gin; PMC; KEF; Vinyl Resellers; Focal and Ross Halfin Photography.
