Asleep at the Wheels of Steel

Asleep At The Wheels Of Steel is an album by British band Saint Etienne which was sent out free to members of the band's fan club in February 2002.

According to the sleeve notes tracks 1-3 are from the soundtrack to a low-budget feature film called "Lost", which bypassed the conventional film distribution, while tracks 5-7 form the specially composed "Hawkline Suite".

The album was reissued in 2008 as part of the Boxette fan-club boxset.
