The first purpose built rehearsal studio in Leeds, opening in 1982 as Parkside Studios in Armley, later moving to an old Wesleyan chapel building at Czar Street, Holbeck, becoming Old Chapel Music Studios in 1992. From the start the studios have been the starting blocks for several of the most successful acts to emerge from Leeds since the early 80's - The Wedding Present, Sisters of Mercy, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, The Mission, Age of Chance, The March Violets, Cud, Embrace, Duels, Kaiser Chiefs, I Like Trains, The Pigeon Detectives, Pulled Apart By Horses - the list goes on, not to mention the countless equally talented, but less famous bands, working pub and club acts, wedding bands, school bands etc. A Community Interest Company trading for Leeds Music Trust. They work with professional and amateurs of all levels, and with partners to provide the best service for all and support for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part. 1 September 2015.
