Wizard Recording was owned by one Dave Smyth, yet contrary to popular belief he didn’t
produce the Teenage Kicks EP, which eventually climbed to number 31 in the UK. “He
wasn’t there during the sessions,” says Davy Shannon, a Belfast native and
self‑taught guitarist who played bass in local bands as a teen, while developing a
parallel interest in reel‑to‑reel recording techniques. One of the groups’ lead
vocalists was Smyth, a businessman who subsequently set up his own home studio during the
early ’70s. With Shannon as the resident techie, this evolved into a commercial facility
on Lower Donegal Street, a few minutes’ walk from the city centre.

Davy Smyth is now living
near Cambridge and has a rather excellent little studio there. Also has a duo/band
called Logic who play regularly in the area.
A good man, and his wife Val is a
lovely lady, too. Look them up on the web.
