This track is composed entirely of sounds which were recorded at BHP's Newcastle steelworks just before it closed operations in late 1999. A portable DAT machine accompanied us on an 'open to the public' tour of the steelworks, much to the bewilderment and universe-halting shock of the other tourists and steelworks staff. The highlights from the DAT recording were then sampled from the DAT and massaged into a cohesive sound collage. Every sound heard on this track is sourced from the steelworks, save and except for the kickdrum. Hi-hats in the track are actually samples of valves letting off steam at various places in the steelworks. Several attempts to try and convince BHP to help fund a Bloody Fist 12" release of the track to commemorate the closure of the steelworks in late 1999 were met with an appropriate mix of disdain and confusion.
First released in 2001 on CDR and then again numerous times with track variations up to 2005. This is the final 2005 version. Artwork, including booklet and track listing included as PDF file. Bloody Fist Records
