Comes in two versions. For £33 or so you get the super deluxe insanely packaged version, comes in a hand sewn, 5.5″ x 14″ folding wallet type sleeve…fronted with a numbered, 100 year old stock certificate from the now defunct Time Released Sound Railways Ltd. Each is held closed with a stretch of train track, and tied off with string. Inside are antique gravures of the passing countryside, vintage signal diagrams and descriptions, and a working red light! All in a massive envelope and only 100 copies. For £8 you get the CD in a hand-stamped paper sleeve. Your choice.
Inspired in particular by the decline and privatization of the railway industry in the UK, and the consequent many melancholic and abandoned railway stations throughout the country...God, tell me about it. I would have definitely stayed in Wetherby/Pudsey if they still had their train stations. Oh! Dr Beeching indeed. What a different country we would have if the railway infrastructure had remained.
Still, I love the bloody railways, despite their...um...idiosyncrasies. The areas around railtracks and stations all look terribly old fashioned as if time has stood still. And I think, reading between the lines, this is what this CD is hoping to evoke, the melancholy that surround shut down stations and the strange machinery that is littered near the railway. The music comprises of evocative synthy drones that although manufactured give off a fractured quality to the proceedings.
