Is this the first Asian band to record at Abbey Road?

That’s what fans of Korean boy band ShinEE have been claiming since I spotted them yesterday at the studios. But is it really so?

I have some recollection of Decca recording the Chung trio, but perhaps that was another London venue.

Rack your brains, ye who read this site, and help us keep the record straight.

Here‘s the latest band pic.

And here’s a first update: bob Dickinson reports that ???Seikima-II – Japanese Heavy Metal Band – recorded their album, ‘Ponk!’, at Abbey Road in 1994.
