Dirty Slippers and Lobó-Szalóky Lázár – Collaborating with Hungarian Rock Royalty

Back to Abbey Road

In June 2023 Dirty Slippers and I returned to Abbey Road to re-work some of their greatest songs with Bebi re-playing the original drums, and English lyrics. We recorded guitars and drums at Abbey Road and also found time to hang out with Giles Martin, Miles Showell and Bernard Butler! Then we decamped to my Manor Gardens Studio in Devon where I helped write the English lyrics. Lázár recorded lead and backing vocals, and I recorded some extra harmonies and backing vocals myself!

Tracks will be gradually released during 2024, so watch this space!

Honest Kid

The products of our Abbey Road labours have finally been unleashed! Here is Honest Kid, the first English language release from Dirty Slippers. I flew to Hungary at the band’s invitation to appear in the video! This is already picking up airplay in the UK. And plans are afoot for more English releases…!

And here’s me at Abbey Road during the sessions…

Anti-War Song “Könnycseppek”

The latest project for Dirty Slippers has been this incredible song featuring famous Hungarian stars Kyra Fedor and Móni Szirmai on guest vocals. I did some additional production, played tambourine, mixed and mastered it…! This week the guys have been all over Hungarian media talking about the track. Have a listen below:

Heaven’s Gate

Dirty Slippers’ track I mixed is released now with a terrific moody widescreen cinematic video…

Abbey Road

Abbey Road

Incredibly, I have been working remotely with Lázár and his band Dirty Slippers for nearly 12 years. They have had huge success in their native Hungary. After so many years of collaboration I was very excited when last year it transpired that some funding was available from the Hungarian government. This meant that Dirty Slippers could come to the UK and record in Abbey Road with me producing. We had hoped this would happen in November, but sadly the pandemic put this on hold. However, I this year in August we finally got to meet in person after so many years of collaboration via the internet. We had a brilliant few days at Abbey Road and I then added cello, shaker, and mixed and mastered a new English language recording. Coming soon I hope…! The band have been featured in national Hungarian newspapers and interviewed on TV about our wonderful meeting and sessions, and the historic recording – they are the first Hungarian band to record at Abbey Road. Watch drummer Bebi’s fantastic video blog of their time in London…


The band have done more than 100 interviews since our Abbey Road excursion. Here are Lázár and Zsombor appearing on Hungarian TV in one of them – loads of photos and mentions for me here…!

The track we recorded will be released shortly. Meanwhile here is the original Hungarian version on Spotify:

Lázár says:

”Fantastic mixer and producer 🙂 I am working with George since 2009 and always amaze me with his professional work! The songs we worked on together got on various top charts 😊❤️🤟
