Andrew Weatherall tribute thread


Guest Z_B_Z

Recommended Posts

just recently ive decided to explore the output of andrew weatherall. for some reson ive always put off really delving into his output, but ive been rectifying this error. how much did he have to do with primal screams 'screamadelica'? ive loved that album for ages.. his pop record from a couple of years ago is pure gold. the man can write a song..

 

from a youtube comment -

 

an interview somewhere he said that he was on a boat going to a gig somewhere. he noted the crew on the boat worked hard day in day out, often for little or no reward with poor catches, all he was doing was putting records on in discos a couple of nights a week. one of the crew summed it up - "fail we may, sail we must", andy had it tattoed on his arms.

im finding the two lone swordsman stuff from the mid to late 90's to be his best 'idm' -

his sabres of paradise related stuff is great too.. sometimes a bit too repetitive tho. but i love this kind of stuff -

It appears Andrew Weatherall has died. Although I can't see anything about this on the internet

Mmmm I dunno too too much about him but his two lone swordsmen Tiny Reminders album is absolutely essential.

 

I got it years ago when it first came out. I was an avid NME reader at the time, well an avid reader of anything musical to be honest, Kerrang, Melody Maker, Select, Vox etc etc. The NME gave it 9/10 (how I remember that makes me laugh). Anyway I bought it the following Monday from Our Price (lol and this) and thought it was complete bollocks. And swapped it for Celtic Frost or something. Either way I picked it up again a few years ago and it is indeed a brilliant album.

 

So it seems that the NME was right and I was wrong. And that's hard to swallow. Cunts.

I was assuming people on this board were familiar with the classic albums documentary series. But I guess this is not the case. There is one docu made about screamadelica. It also covers the (huge!) part Weatherhall has in the success of the album.

 

On the classic albums series: these are a must for any bedroom producer, imo. Especially because of the way the decision making by producers/writers is given attention.

Second the recommendation. I always get stuck watching that program if I stumble on it, no matter what album they are talking about.

Used to enjoy his DJ mixes and Kiss FM slots... Bumble - West In Motion (Andrew Weatherall Mix) is an epic track.

Prob own more records that this bloke had a hand in than any other artist. Words seem trite, truly gutted.

Full Circle & Sabresonic were unparalleled nights out in a sea of paint it by numbers rrrrrave crap.

Game changers like Weatherall are so incredibly rare, especially these days. Lord Sabre, a salute to you sir.

      "Mr. Weatherall requires no introduction if you're over the age of 25 and have even a passing interest in club music. For everyone else he's the guy behind Primal Scream's definitive '90s LP 'Screamadelica' and one of the most respected wax collectors in the world. For his 'Masterpiece' he draws for no less than six of his own remixes out of 12 on offer. They include his chugging overhauls of Grinderman, The Horrors, Wooden Shjips, and the aforementioned Primals, plus a strolling pace rework of Timothy J Fairplay and a Big Beat Rockers remix of Toddla T & Roots Manuva's 'Watch Me Dance'. Complementing these are fine cuts from Walls, Ajello, Kaspar Bjørke, A.R. Kane and Aquarius Heaven"

      Andrew Weatherall's beard needs no introduction...
      Here is a very rare oportunity to own an equisite collectors item and a true iconic peice of bonafiedy >120bpm 'trappin's' associated with the artist and music.
      as seen on Vice Tv
      Not only is this a chance to own the beard, but it is also expected to have a steady revenue stream from appearances worldwide, obviously this is not going to be a stake in the artist, however the agent for the artist has insisted they are keeping the 'beard' on the books for events. Direct quote taken from facebook...
      "The beard is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs through www.spunoutagency.com"

      We are starting with a low price - Please be aware you are bidding for the cuttings of a used beard. We ship worldwide
