The train station in Sheffield has a really awesome landscape design~ A massive steel wall with water running down it is the main feature. It highlights Sheffield’s past as England’s “steel city” and the use of water power in its industry.
Jarvis Cocker leads a blazing live soundtrack to BFI archive footage of our steelmaking past.
I vowed never to get into all that ‘Sheffield: Steel City’ biz. But guess what? Looking at the BFI’s awesome collection of steel-related films changed my mind. I only hope that we can pay proper homage to the extraordinary individuals featured in this footage. Our aim is to melt faces (and hearts) – and to blow minds. With maybe a bit of smelting thrown in for good measure. The jesses are so off.
