UK Band & Studio Loses All Of Their Gear In Studio Blaze, GoFundMe Launched

Sending love to math-rock outfit Last Hyena.


The UK math-rock outfit Last Hyena lost "every piece of musical gear" imaginable when earlier this month a freak fire incident than ran through Omni Room studios, located in the city of Bristol, about 90 minutes west of London.

Rory [Mapes] and Max [Mees] have lost every piece of musical gear between them," the band posted on Facebook. "Most of it [had been] acquired over years of tone hunting and all with its own sentimental values and memories. We were just on the verge of recording our next record for 2023 which of course has now been pushed back.”

If you want to help out and lend these guys a hand, a GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the studio and all of the affected bands affected. The studio apparently has insurance, but it does not extend to the equipment within the space, which is often a Catch-22 with many insurance policies.

Omni Rooms opened in 2020 and was owned by Jodie Robinson, who said “I feel like I’ve lost a huge part of who I am right now. I just keep thinking I was here once before, I had nothing and I can do this again. But for now my main priority is to help these musicians get back on their feet.”
