And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

ALPOCO not Anglesey Aluminium.

History of explosions at ALPOCO, there was one in 2001 and I recall another in the mid 90's?

I rememberwatching the massive explosion there, back in the 80s. The boom and then flash off that was tremendous, once I heard the bang, I darted up on the shed roof and watched the explosion
IT IS RASCALS BIRTHDAY BEFORE MONKEY FIDDLERS!!! STILL!!!      
Oooh, it's all "Wils, Wils, Wils!"
Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.
I think Rascal should apologise for Wils - seriously!

Aluminium powder is one of the most explosive industrial products going.

I was told by the local Fire Chief (on the QT) back in the 1980's that AA were a bit relaxed re safety measures for his taste.
Not waiting for the others.

Aluminium powder is one of the most explosive industrial products going.

The Provisional IRA used to use it to boost the power of their home made explosive large bombs - AnAl,  Ammonium Nitrate, Aluminium powder and industrial sucrose.
