Pressing vinyl

Here's a great short film about pressing vinyl. See the process start with pellets that warm to a toothpaste-like gloop and end up as we know & love it.

From the video it's painfully clear that this is a dying art. These guys inherited EMI's pressing machines. They're knocking on 100 years old, still apparently the best in the world and whilst watching the process you can almost smell the machine grease and plastic fumes...

Never mind the whale, the whale's fine - save the vinyl.
