When i first played this mix, I immediately loved it! This is unlike any other mix I’ve heard in a long time, very unusual track selection but a very, very good one at that! If you don’t know Andy Weatherall, ya better ask somebody… or just read what FACT had to say (edited) :

A vital part of UK music in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Weatherall was the wry wit and leading DJ behind seminal acid house crew Boys Own, whose early remixes and productions for the likes of Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and Saint Etienne led the way in blending dance and rock music into blissed-out loose-limbed union, writ largest on the ‘Scream’s still peerless debut album Screamadelica (which Weatherall produced).

Never one to be shackled to a particular groove or sub-genre, Weatherall’s contributed a wonderful micro-house mix for Force Tracks, a forward-thinking techno and narco-disco mix for Fabric (that introduced many to the likes of Villalobos, The Emperor Machine and more), the ground-breaking 9’O Clock Drop comp of post-punk classics (before the world and his wife discovered them) and an excellent comp of his much-loved rockabilly to Soma’s Sci-Fi-Lo-Fi series. And if that wasn’t enough, this month he releases his first solo album, a collection of slow-burning punk-funk entitled A Pox on the Pioneers, that merges Weatherall’s longstanding interest in rock ‘n’ roll and “modernist electronics”
