Feeling at Home

Dan Gillespie-Sells, front man of The Feeling, shows Attitude around his East London pad – a converted pub, which serves as his home, and his recording studio.

Dan Gillespie-Sells’ home is the kind of spacious living quarters-cum-studio you might expect a musician to have in the suburbs or the countryside, except it’s smack bang in the middle of Hackney, East London.

Functioning as a pub since the 19th century (until it lost its license in 2000), the building retains the bottle green and beige tiling around its exterior – commonplace for traditional cockney boozers.

“It was built in 1880, as part of what is now a conservation area,” Dan explains. “The whole row of houses to the side of it all got taken out by a bomb during the Second World War. So now we have two houses next door that replicate the old style, and then a block of 1960s flats.”
