Kate Moss on recording console design

From The Independent yesterday: "Those who watched Sky One's footage of Kate Moss hoofing cocaine - broadcast last night - were not shown footage of the "horseplay" that preceded it. During the now-infamous evening, at a West London studio where boyfriend Pete Doherty was recording a new album, I gather that the skinny beauty, right, spilled her drink across the mixing desk.
'Chaos ensued, since it could quite easily have ruined several thousand pounds worth of equipment,' says one who witnessed proceedings. 'Kate wasn't in the least bit upset, though. She just shouted out: 'What a bloody stupid design. What's the point of it being designed like that, if you can't even put your drink on it?''
. I'm not 100% sure, but it seems it happened at Doghouse Studios in Henley on Thames, so the desk in question was probably their Amek Angela, worth about £15k a lot. (Thanks to (a different) Kate, whose New Single [iTunes] is out this week)


Comments:
There was a story years ago in Studio Sound about a coffee spilled on some big London console. The next day a major session was happening and some of the faders were stuck. The meter was running and big money was flying by so they just poured another coffee on it and kept driving.
 
One suspects that, prior to losing several million pounds in contracts, 15k really wouldn't have registered on Kate Moss as a significant sum of money.
 
It was the Doghouse. Owned by the former drummer of Jethro Tull.
 
I paid for my amek angela only 4000 euros...

I did some sessions with an engineer who insisted on hoovering lines off the padded armrest of his Trident desk. He insisted that he needed to monitor at levels that 'made his ears bleed'. Nose too, presumably. I imagine the insides of that desk held their value pretty well as they gradually became encrusted with pharmaceuticals, though it may well have had strange electrical effects.
 
following kate's same deranged logic, does she simply rest her drink on any horizontal surface, assuming it's been designed purely as a kate-moss-drink-holder. stupid bint.

if engineers and/or producers are stupid enough to let morons like doherty's cronies eat/drink/snort near expensive equipment then they get no sympathy from me...
 
i really dont understand why the wholeworld cares if katemoss is doing coke. seems pretty trivial. even the police reacting the way they have is just stupid. everytime they hear of someone doing coke do they send 5 investigators over to check it out? or only when the person is famous in some way?

funny about the drink spill though. typical.i think GF's should not be allowed in the studio unless its for a conjugal visit. or if they are allowed in the studio it shold be under strict rules. no speaking or rendering of opinions about anything and stay 5 feet away from anything that's plugged in.

like hunter S said: "you leave that weird fucker alone"
 
I'm pretty sure a few years back in Sound on Sound there was an article about vangelis, and in one picture he and Demis Roussos are smiling away in front of a Neve with a big 'ol bag of toot between them. SOS picture Ed was dozing that day I reckon.
 
She probably sat on it too.
 
last time my "GF" was "allowed" in the studio i was under strict rules: to not be present at all, even if i promised not to render an opinion. and that was fair enough, particularly as i have never set foot in one and would either have broken something or wanted to knit a cosy for it.
 
oh, and:
"if engineers and/or producers are stupid enough to let morons like doherty's cronies eat/drink/snort near expensive equipment..."
to my mind one of the pixellated cronies seen on the TV programme snorting near the expensive equipment looked very much like aging baldy Wendy James "shagger" Mick Jones. Producer.
And don't tell me you wouldn't have if you were there.
 
i was recording in a studio in Melbourne Australia (i cant think of the studios name now) but the studio owner was telling us that when they recieved their desk, purchased from Neil Young's home studio, they had to clean an awful lot of fine white powder from the faders to get them to run smoothly again.

My piano teacher once spilled a cup of tea into her Steinway grand. The damage/income ratio was probably much worse than in this case.
