almost exactly a year after his first ep on byrd out (the kiyadub ep), the legendary andrew weatherall returns with new material for a second release. andrew invited a mate round to his studio to try out a les paul his friend was looking to buy. as it turns out, his mate was ride s (and oasis ) guitarist andy bell. anyway, andrew suggested he test the guitar out over a track he was working on, and ‘making friends with the invader’ is the resulting track, which andrew paired with the ep’s title track ‘blue bullet’. both tracks plough the trippy, cosmic dub furrow, and come in at a weighty 8 and 9 minutes plus. 1000 vinyl only, and 200 cassettes. grab them while you can! mastered by noel summerville. artwork by g.s-l studio

for starters: to pin down and value andrew weatherall’s musical deed takes more space than available in a press release text but here is some of many highlights. as a producer, weatherall has since he first shook the foundation for modern pop music with ground breaking and genre bending remixes of primal scream (loaded), my bloody valentine (soon) new order (world in motion) and many other influential acts, continued to push sounds in to unknown territories. his importance as a musician is as big, with bands like the iconic sabres of paradise and two lone swordsmen in the 90’s and top quality solo records from the 00’s up till today.
an exclusive new ep from the legendary andrew weatherall, limited to vinyl only, and just 500 copies. the ep dives for the dub laden and spacey fringes of electronic music, with heavy driving bass - one to drop towards the end of a night. mastered by noel summerville. artwork by g.s-l studio.
if ‘convenanza’, released in february, was a distillation of all andrew weatherall’s influences in one place then ‘consolamentum’ takes that instinct a step further. here he invites friends old and new to rework the tracks from convenanza in their own style.
the double vinyl release includes a download code.
‘convenanza’ is the sound of andrew weatherall looking back at the clutter of a life thoroughly lived and realising it’s too late to tidy it up in any meaningful way. many years of listening to music with a unique ear has resulted in the disordered cabinet of highlights, touchstones, revelations and half recalled good times that make up being lord sabre.
the double vinyl release includes a download code.
wenn das anfang des jahres erschienene und mit lob überschüttete convenanza ein destillat der einflüsse weatheralls war, so geht consolamentum einen schritt weiter. für dieses remixalbum lud der legendäre dj und produzent alte und neue freunde ein, die convenanza tracks in ihrem ureigenen stil zu remixen. an bord sind angesehene musikarchitekten wie david holmes (als unloved), justin robertson und bernard fevre (black devil disco club), während heretic, red axes, solar bears und vox low die garde des talentierten nachwuchses stellen.
der legendäre, britische produzent andrew weatherall bereist auf seinem neuen soloalbum -convenanza- seine musikalische sozialisation mit einflüssen aus post-punk, new wave, punk-funk, dub und synth-pop und vermengt sie mit warmen basslines von heute. garniert mit seinen echo-vocals im stile von the clash, ist das ergebnis ein ereignisreicher trip durch dekaden britischer wave- und clubmusik.
