Monnow Valley Studios was originally the rehearsal space of the neighbouring Rockfield Studios. In the 1980s it became an independent studio, and has since hosted the likes of Oasis, Pulp, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Biffy Clyro, Blood Red Shoes, The Charlatans, The Stone Roses, Manic Street Preachers, Queen, Rush, Stereophonics, Laura Marling, and many more.
The iconic doors of the studio make an appearance on Oasis' iconic "Supersonic" single artwork.
