  • FRIDAY JUNE 6TH BLK|MARKET MEMBERSHIP with residents TAIMUR+FAHAD present: The Long Awaited Return of: ANDREW WEATHERALL [2 Lone Swordsmen/Sabres of Paradise/Fabric-UK] + Audiomatique 2.0 mixed by Adultnapper -CD Release Party- ADULTNAPPER [Ransom Note/Audiomatique/Nummer - NY] $20 ALL NIGHT $15 TILL 1 AM IF YOU RSVP BAR 13 13th+University Entrance on University ANDREW WEATHERALL BIO Weatherall's history goes back far to the beginning of the British acid house scene having swung gigs for himself at Danny Rampling's legendary Shoom night he was part of the original Boys Own record label (and fanzine) which led to artist releases, remixes and a string of legendary London clubs such as Blood Sugar, Circulation, and of course Sabresonic (where the fledgling David Holmes cut his teeth). It was through Primal Scream though that Andrew first made his name. As the producer of Screamadelica he took The Primals, twisted them (best not to ask how) and in turn created the hybrid of narcotically challenged rock and acid house now seen as a generation-defining release. It was through the club Sabresonic and Andrew's remix productions that he tied in with Jagz and Burns forming the live/ studio Sabres of Paradise band. More often than not shows would see Andrew standing at the side of the stage possibly doing fuck all other than smoking fags. No one was quite sure. What is certain is that these experiences drew Andrew away from the Screamadelica-inspired lime-light that beckoned and back into the subterrain to develop the dark, experimental sounds he has subsequently become known and respected for. After the demise of Sabres (and the record label inspired by the outfit) following a string of albums and singles (on Warp) Andrew teamed up with fellow Sabres cohort Keith Tenniswood to form Two Lone Swordsmen. Keith himself has a string of prior musical convictions working with The Aloof, David Holmes and Red Snapper. More recently he has made really fucked electro breaks to wrong-foot the dancefloor under the name Radioactive Man for the Andrew’s label R.G.C. Keith's ear for the production of low-end frequencies is unrivalled. Quietly toiling away in their Rotter's Club studio the pair honed their own brand of lo-fi emissions delighting experimentalists equally frustrating the folk waiting for Andrew to stop being up his own arse and get on and knock out more of those dubby Balearic tracks he initially made his name with. Thankfully this never happened. Instead Fifth Mission - Return to the Flightpath Estate was released, a sprawling, dense double CD soundtrack lurching between leftfield dancefloor and your fucked head all shot through with an alarming disregard for genre or expectations. As if to confound admirers further Andrew also made deep house releases as Lino Square, Rude Solo and a whole host of yet to be discovered pseudonyms. After a couple more releases on his own Emissions label Andrew and Two Lone Swordsmen re-signed to Warp and became quietly prolific with a string of releases such as 'Sticky/ Gay Spunk', 'A Virus With Shoes' and 'A Bag of Blue Sparks'. Then back to Primal Scream taking the track 'Stuuka' and re-writing it as a supremely morbid piece of reggae-heavy electro. Then there was the second TLS album ‘Stay Down’, its title as revealing as it was succinct. The third album ‘Tiny Reminders’ and then a fourth ‘Further Reminders’ when once again Andrew [and Keith] threw the cat amongst the pigeons making music with machines like no one else. After that they delivered "From The Double Gone Chapel" which is soon to be outdone by the imminent ‘Wrong Meeting’ and it’s heavily rockabilly tinged marvels. All the while Andrew has been maintaining his output through various alternatives project, most notably his first EP under his own name: ‘The Bullet Catcher’s Apprentice’ released in Sep 2006 on Rotters Golf Club. His mix CDs continue to impress from his Heavenly offering with Richard Fearless to his formidable Fabric Mix and the hard to find Rockabilly mixes recorded at his London residency with Ivan Smagghe, aptly titled ‘Wrong Meeting’ at the T Bar in Shoreditch. In between DJing all over the world, with residencies at Fabric (London), Back to Basics (Leeds), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt) and Mondo (Madrid), you can find him touring live with Two Lone Swordsmen throughout 2007.
