Everything is a passion project for Chris "Frenchie" Smith, as long as the music rocks. The producer, and guitarist of Sixteen Deluxe and Young Heart Attack fame, gets spirited at every session that enters his Bubble, whether icon (Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister) or unknown (Purple). The Hyde Park recording studio, which Smith operates with partner Alex Lyon, is full of exquisite gear, swings analog or digital, boasts a recently expanded mastering studio, and houses a pretty legendary Ms. Pac-Man machine.
