Tunnel 3 05:41


A long needed remaster & CD reissue of the 2006 release 'Drakelow' by epic45. A blend of degraded tape loops, worn analogue synths, pianos and other sounds. All informed by the duo's signature melancholy, though much darker in places than usual.

An audio response to a visit the band took down a labyrinthine, underground bunker in the Worcestershire countryside. Initially built during WW2 to manufacture aeroplane parts, the 3.5 sq miles of tunnels were later converted into a Regional Headquarters to be utilised in the event of nuclear war.

The reissue features 3 bonus tracks: The unreleased 'Tunnel 3', an unedited, extended version of 'English Clock Systems' and the 2019 re-recording of 'Vanishing Britain' (previously only available on an extremely limited lathe cut 7" vinyl)

As well as this, a 16 page booklet featuring previously unseen photography and words is included too.
