The Swedish studio where pop supergroup Abba recorded has been forced to close-down - after it's current owners could no longer afford the rent.
LENNARD OESTLUND, part owner of the studio says, "I see it as a museum of Swedish music history, especially Abba."
The studio is now scheduled to close in May (04), but Oestlund is keeping optimistic and remains determined to open a new studio elsewhere.
He adds, "I'll keep a mixer board and some microphones and try to start a new operation on a smaller scale."
The Polar studio's was where ABBA - who celebrated the 30th anniversary of their Eurovision Song Contest win this week (end09APR04) - recorded their last three albums VOULEZ-VOUS (1979), SUPER TROUPER (1980) and THE VISITORS (1981).08/04/2004 17:04
