Yorkshire music is the best…

A HUGE recording studio in the back garden.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG AND YOU’VE ACRIMONIOUSLY BROKEN UP CITING HUGE MUSICAL DIFFERENCES, WHAT DO YOU FALL BACK ON?
I go back to my studio and carry on producing other bands (we’ve got a studio and self produce recordings and videos).
