albo The third and final leg of the Trans-Yorkshire Express is both a celebration and a timely reflection. For me, it navigates a personal passage through the scarred soundscapes of a bruised county (still one, though it has been quite literally hung, drawn, and quartered) 35 years after the civil war. The pits, steelworks, mills, factories have gone - only their resonance remains in blurred memory - but the battered communities are still viscerally visible as we pass by. What of them? How do they fare in this new world? This is perhaps not such a glamorous journey as Kraftwerk took through a recuperating Europe 40-odd years ago, but it is no less powerful or vital. Favorite track: Engine Fields.

moonbase3 Superb...This is a can't-turn-offer. It's like a monster machine that's been running all night in the cellar and when you come down in the morning, it's now filled the room and climbing the stairs. Unstoppable rhythm...on a mission! Favorite track: Foddergang.

about

Engine Fields: youtu.be/tCgNlc9kY9Q

Nunroyd Works is the third release by Craven Faults.

We’ve picked up speed since we passed Netherfield and Springhead Works. It’s more built up here, as we enter the outskirts of the city. The former mills and cinemas are alive. A kick drum carries though the walls. Every so often the doors open and the sound spills onto the street. The destination was unintentional. An experiment.

Who plotted this course? As ever, it isn’t always what you expected, but the journey is key. Detroit via The Orbit in Morley, 1992. Istanbul, 1967. We travelled by rail with old friends. Vienna, late night café, straight connection. Lower Manhattan, 1966. New Year’s Day in Filey, making mental note of the patterns played out by the church bells. 1991. Revisited several times over. Mutated by the passage of time.

Those memories that stay with us and influence our decisions many years later. Taking time to make new ones. Do you always need to travel with a purpose? Could you follow your instincts from time to time?

A trilogy complete. The end of a journey?
