about

Petrol Factory is the quaking barrier between the end of the end of time and the end of the world.
It is an oil repository in the harbour, watching the containers, navy and cruise ships arrive and depart. A median point where everything is twisted together. Oil poisons the bay. Factories chug out iron. Nothing points more to extinction than the monolith of the Petrol Factory on the horizon.
Exploring surveillance, brutal policing, modernism and mechanophilia, Petrol Factory is a passage through EBM, post punk and goth.

Often improvised and never quite the same, Petrol Factory attempts to solidify what a Rising Damp performance is like. The ghost of the theremin harking early electronics, as programmed drums create rhythmic hypnosis. Spitted lyrics respond to the archival film on the construction of a Brutalist bank, with samples that replicate the jackhammer.

Songs were arranged for a live band release with drummer Sarah Grimes and guitarist/synth player, Ivan Pawle. Due to the Covid-19 shutdown in Ireland, the live band project is currently postponed. In the meantime, listen to the album as it was made; in the solitude of your own bedroom, with the curtains drawn.
