People and Industry
3rd September 2021

The follow up to Interim Report, March 1979 provides a soundtrack to industry, employment and life in Warrington-Runcorn at the tail end of the 1970s.

Nine new tracks celebrate the work and communities that surrounded the Warrington-Runcorn area, from the petrochemical plant at Weston Point to the cutting-edge Parkside Colliery at Newton-le-Willows.

The album was out on 3rd September 2021 on coloured vinyl and digital formats from Castles in Space and records stores across the UK.

Reviews

“An on-boarding seminar for a distant time and place, when specks on the map of England had enormous cooling towers on their horizons” – Bleep

“It’s retro-futurism as head-shaking social comment, a heartrending experience. An album of stained overalls and shattered pride.” – Electronic Sound
