Artefact

Buzzcocks
Photograph
1978
Can anyone help please in identifying the studio where this shot was taken? The ceiling has very distinctive acoustic tiles. The image is by my friend and photographer June Buchan who took a roll of shots of The Buzzcocks while they were being filmed by a Granada crew. She worked for Granada at the time. She thought it might be Strawberry Studios but the negs are labelled as being taken in Manchester 1978. I'd be grateful for any help!

Hi, would it be possible to get permission from June to use this image in a book about Buzzcocks due for publication next year, entitled 'Ever Fallen In Love'? A donation to MDMA will be made if it gets used.
Thanks

I think this might be what used to be Pluto Recording Studios on Granby Row in Manchester (Near Sackville Gardens) Buzzcocks recorded there, Clash, Smiths, Joy Division. Now a block of flats I believe and it didn’t stand as a recording studio for too long after. Hope this helps. ????
