Fact Du Jour – August 10, 2019 – The Police On Montserrat

The British rock band The Police was just one of many, many musical acts who visited the Lesser Antilles Caribbean island of Montserrat for purposes of…recording music – and having lots and lots of fun in the process! Sadly, Hurricane Hugo virtually destroyed Montserrat in 1989, and in 1995, a dormant volcano woke up – and finished the job.

The Police recorded their last two studio albums – Ghost in the Machine – and Synchronicity at AIR Studios. Sir George Martin (best known as being The Beatles’ producer) founded AIR Studios’ Montserrat facility.
