But every good producer needs a workshop, and Flash lost his Currabubula studio, Angelwood Studios, to adverse weather and white ants some years ago while working away.
Due to illness,he couldn’trestore it himself, and hasn’t setfoot inthere since, saying it was too heartbreaking to see.
It wasn’t until old friends, brothers, Russ Belletteand Charlie Riverswent searching forold tapes whenthey saw how bad it really was.

With Flash’s house andstudio right night door to the Currabubula Hotel, publican Kathy Dodd offered up the venuefor the big event to be held on Sunday, December 4 from 2pm.
