Not many bands name a song after an oil refinery but that's where Stanlow the epic song from OMD comes from. An oil pipeline was built, running from Amlwch to Stanlow on Liverpool's Ellesmere Port. The song is a 6 minute 41 second long gothic homage to Stanlow. It's a masterpiece consistening of OMD's trademark synthesizers,drum machines. Lead vocals are by Andy McCluskey. Stanlow was not a single but it is regarded by many fans as a seminal recording. It's the final track on Organisation their second album released in 1980. .
