Although digital is now the powerhouse of the music industry, vinyl is still a popular choice for some. This article focuses on the last major vinyl factory in the UK, and makes for very interesting reading, explaining in detail, the intricate processes behind making a record.
The Middlesex based business, (now called The Vinyl Factory) was previously owned by EMI and the staff still use the same equipment today as they did 40 years ago. The only difference is the numbers, in the 1970s, the plant was responsible for pressing one million vinyl records a week, today that figure stands at just 25,000.
