The album is presented on CD, with an accompanying cassette tape of exclusive works you’ll not hear anywhere else.
The release is an exclusive to the Wayside & Woodland store, you won’t hear this online anytime soon.
“From an early age, I had a fascination with pylons. The public information films of my childhood did little to quell this creeping sense of unease. Over the years, this preoccupation has informed my work, inspiring many pieces of music. Some of it found its way onto the ‘Substation Index’ release, a mini CDr I left at any substation I came across on my travels. It was free, you just had to find it.
This collection was harvested from the many tapes and hard drives that have been slowly filling up over the years. I hope it makes some sense.” – Charles Vaughan
