Philip Bagenal – Founder, Technician and former Owner of Eastcote Studios:
Eastcote Studios was founded in 1980 by Philip Bagenal in conjunction with Chaz Jankel. The entire complex is Philip’s design, with most of the structure and fixtures hand-made by Philip himself. It’s this personal touch that has left Eastcote Studios with such a friendly, relaxed feel to it – one that countless musicians have fallen in love with over the past 37 years. In 2017, Philip passed on ownership of Eastcote Studios to studio neighbour Martin Terefe (owner of Kensaltown Studios). Philip now runs the maintenance for the studio and the atmosphere and vibe he worked so long to create remains.
