Guardian article. Points out he was one of the first to champion The Chems.








DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

Dang, rest in peace. He had his hands in so many places.







Never for money, always for love.

Damn. Horrible news. Dude had an awesome career and a great ear for interesting music. Involved in one of the most iconic British albums ever.

RIP Andrew, thanks for your work.

What a terrible, terrible loss.

Thank you for EVERYTHING, Mr. Weatherall.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

National Public Radio did a piece on him and when talking about Screamadelica played Movin On Up...which he did not produce.  :/

Alex Patterson dedicated his weekly(?) show to him.  The first hour and 11 minutes and the last hour (except the last track?) are based on a mixtape Andrew made for Alex when they were neighbors in the late eighties or something.  The middle hour is a mix of Andrew's work.

For those interested (and I imagine it's damn near everyone here), I present the Weatherdrive:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B23ZLBzfzfvec3ZhVE1uV0JtSGs

a staggeringly comprehensive collection of every DJ set, live recording, and unreleased tape Andrew Weatherall ever made, besides those commercially released.

I started with a Heavenly Social set from 1994, and good lord is it banging.

19930305 Rhumba Edinburgh is also a great set and (very historically) features Song to the Siren, back when it was still the only Dust Brothers song around, and only Weatherall was playing it.
Never for money, always for love.
