Under The Volcano

Under The Volcano

On a remote Caribbean island in the 1980s, in the shadow of a volcano, the world’s biggest recording artists were drawn to one special place, George Martin’s AIR Studios Montserrat, to escape, to write, to swim and to fight – and to forge the music that defined an era.
