"Direct-to-digital field recordings of sounds made in and by a derelict Catholic school-house, situated near Alton Towers theme park in the middle of England. Whereas the theme park attracts millions and millions of joyous visitors each year, the school (empty since 1980 and still in search of a buyer) attracts only teenage glue-sniffers and vandals, who have left their calling card in the form of broken windows, collapsing floors and the ever-present aroma of Kestrel Extra Strength. Our Lady looks out from her vantage point above the once-grandiose assembly hall to view a sea of broken glass, empty beercans, asbestos and spraypainted profanity. These recordings were made over a two-year period using only acoustic and battery-operated musical implements. Hear creaking floors, resonant cavern drone, wind hammering against fragile glass and instruments weaving in and out of sounds generated by the buildings themselves. Limited to 500 copies in silkscreened covers" - BWCD.
