about

A mini concept album about 1980s/1990s childhood nostalgia, the closure of the local mining industry, the start of Acid House and living next to Sherwood Forest. It was a time of strife for adults in the area with the loss of employment and community. But as a child we enjoyed seemingly endless summers, not fully understanding the concerns of our parents. The album arc starts with a carefree childhood summer on 'Forest Steam Aviary'. 'Headstocks' is the sound of the mining industry alive and not aware of the impending doom, with 'Hydraulic Relics' taking a fond look back at that industrial era. Ambient techno track 'Crushed NG21' explores past ghosts, anxiousness and nostalgia, leading into 'Snapcabin' which injects bursts of sunshine along with bouncy beats. 'Waterworks Drive Tape' is the sound of an old forgotten cassette tape, measuring the distance between now and a time so long ago it feels dead now.
