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.
