Flick International
Between 1983 - 1986 Jon Buxton & Terry Boazman (ex Misspent Youth) ran Flick International Recording Studios in 3 Cellars of The Argent Centre, Frederick Street, in Birmingham`s Jewellery Quarter. Also housed in their back office was the Record Company No Rip Off Records run by Paul Panic (ex Solihull Punks The Accused, Eye Do It & future Bass player with Heronimus Fin) - The 8 track studio made copious demos and mastered several releases by Artists such as Brian Connolly`s The Sweet, Felt (Snakes Crinkle Their Heads to Death - Creation Records), Napalm Death (shortest ever song), The Pungent Smells, 16 bands who featured on the `Night at the Flicks` compilation LP and many, many more, here is a page giving an overview of those heady days!!

The Argent Centre
Basement no 1
On first moving in to the basement areas there were some large girders that needed removing here and there - however with many sleepless nights & musicians chipping in (and of course the Mighty Steve) eventually there was an 8 track recording studio, a rehearsal room & 2 offices in basement no 1
Basement no 2  
Here too some girders needed removing & rooms needed to be built - on completion 3 rehearsal rooms and a very important coffee machine resided in basement no 2

Night at The Flicks
Flick decided to release a compilation LP featuring 16 of the bands using the facilities - Jon liked the sleeve to `You Can All Join In` the Island Records Sampler, it also seemed like a good idea to feature a cinema on the sleeve, so one Sunday morning in 1985 all the bands  meet for a photo shoot outside the soon to be demolished Gaumont cinema in the centre of Birmingham
