Thanks for sharing the album, really enjoying listening to it on BandCamp right now.
I love ambient electronic music as it helps me focus and relax at work.

Some of you know in my spare time I run a cassette label, specialising in ambient electronica - I'm just in the process of putting out a new release. 

Last year, with a mind to making a jacket or something, I bought a few metres of British Millerain off ebay: needless to say it's remained gathering dust ever since. One of the things I like to do with my tape releases is to give them unusual packaging (I also do lino prints to go with each one), so I thought... why not make little bags out of the Millerain for the latest album to go in? 

here it is laid out, with the pattern marked out (it's a pretty basic pattern cause frankly my seamstressing is pretty basic too)



here's some closeups of the cloth - it's lovely stuff. 





This is my sewing machine - a 1970s german workhorse. Basic but solid and reliable. 


first: sew in the drawstring (I got some leather thong for this)



...then down the side seam



then I folded it over so the side seam was down the centre:



then turn it inside out and pop one of these copper rings on the drawstring.



...like so



and finally, printed up with the lino print insert etc:



check it out here if you like (hit me up for a download code if you like it and want a copy of the music btw) https://portlandvows.bandcamp.com/album/this-fragile-workforce

That waste depot was like catnip mate - I wanted to spend the rest of the day wandering round it.

This is right up my street! exactly what i was imagining for the neighbourhoods thread, alas it wasn't to be. Your glamorous assistant looks somewhat reluctant tho LOL

We're in the process of removing the 1960's tat from our house and restoring some Victorian working class 'grandeur' so im drooling over all things red brick nowadays.

Keep it up!
I'll endorse anything for cash

I don't swim. I can swim. I just don't have much cause to do so in the normal run of things.

The next day we went to visit the city waste depot: I had absolutely no idea this was here, a large complex of handsome Victorian buildings, which retain many of their original features, mostly I expect through neglect.



My assistant here demonstrates how the yard in front of the stable would have appeared when the rubbish carts were all assembled to go out collecting waste



inside, the stable stalls are now used to store the rotary brushes used by the street sweepers:



one stall is lined with a feed sack, although horses have not been kept there for the best part of a century



In the early 20th century, Preston had an innovative system which used the energy generated by burning the town's rubbish to power the local tram service. This is a photo of the site from 1904, showing the same buildings (and more or less the same view) as the first photo. The furnace chimney (called 'the destructor' is long gone)

1874 and 1882 were the previous set, so a little out unfortunately.
