Influenced by George Martin and Joe Meek, Watson established Toe Rag Studios in early 1991 with the idea of building a studio with predominantly analogue recording equipment. This was owing to his dislike of the numerous (digital) studios that had a short life span and "didn't really offer anything unique".[1] Watson was given free rein to record musicians and bands using his analogue studio: he worked alongside film producer and musician, Josh Collins, and retro-fashion designer, Barbara Hanf.
