Notes Have you ever felt a change in pressure as you whoosh along on the underground (subway, u-bahn, etc)? Darkness remains outside the carriage window, but momentarily it’s a deeper darkness as though the tunnel’s dropped away to a larger space out there. That’ll be a ghost station. My first experience, of what I later learnt to be the long-closed York Road station, was on the Piccadilly line between King’s Cross and Caledonian Road. Dollboy has used the fascination of this kind of experience as the basis for his album. It’s a typically lovingly created release on the Second Language label.
