This was actually released in 2005 not 2007 per Stanley Donwood's ZMAS Department Store:

FAST TRACK
Both of these pictures are inspired by Victorian engravings from the illustrated London News, a lurid periodical which, before the use of half-toned photographs, was illustrated with quickly-executed engravings depicting various murders, suicides and natural disasters such as shark attacks and earthquakes. The first issue, published in 1842, contained a Dreadful Railway accident near Paris; an Awful Steamboat Explosion in America; and War in Afghanistan;among other less interesting articles.

Theatre of Death and Fast Track were originally part of a series of pictures that I did rather obsessively in a sketchbook - drawn with biro rather than engraved - detailing the various interconnections of evil toys, silenced witnesses, volcanoes and various other protagonists and scenarios that coexisted unhappily in my imagination at the time. I had no idea what each picture would look like when I started them.
