Consolamentum

Andrew Weatherall

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.

On board are redoubtable musical architects such as David Holmes (under his new ‘Unloved’ guise), Justin Robertson (wearing his ‘Deadstock 33s’ hat) and the legendary Bernard Fevre of Black Devil Disco Club notoriety.

Leading the charge by the new guard are Heretic, Red Axes, Solar Bears and Vox Low whose tracks have twisted into existence a quiet storm on ALFOS nights.

Praise for ‘Convenanza’:

DJ Mag – 8.5/10 – “’Convenanza’ might just be his most accomplished LP yet.”
Q – 4/5 – “a mighty tasty spread.”
XLR8R – 8/10 – “a seamless blend of live drums and bass, electronics and scuzz, atmosphere and intrigue… it just sounds like Weatherall.”
Groove – “a great success”

Available on CD, double LP (700 copies) and download.
Release date 21st October 2016.

Pre-order info will be supplied as soon as we have it.

Weatherall mix for Phonica

Mr Weatherall has completed a rather fine mix for our friends at Phonica. It’s titled ‘Phonic-a-delic (A Trip Through the Back Wall)’ and gives a taste of some of the more esoteric records which they stock.

Weatherall mix for Soundwall

Our friends at Soundwall magazine in Italy have uploaded a new mix from Andrew, you can listen to it here. I’ll leave it to Mr W to describe: “I recently had to re-locate my record library and it led to the culling of 6,000 records and hours of re-discovery as I unpacked what was left. I have recorded some of these listening sessions and they will be aired as a series entitled ‘The R.G.C. Library Archive Hour’.” This is number seven and we’ll post the other mixes as they appear online.

WRF

The Woodleigh Research Facility - out now

‘The Phoenix Suburb’ is the sound of Andrew Weatherall and Nina Walsh taking a disgruntled sine wave for a walk, throwing it sticks, skimming it on a rough sea and scrunching it up and leaving it at the bottom of a bag over a long weekend. It’s trying to cheer up D minor with ball games and scrabble, puppet shows with tutu’d ponies and frizzy haired gonks and clips of cavorting kittens before giving up and crushing it between rocks mined by sobbing orphans. It’s loading the hum kick and the ticky snare on a tandem and pushing them down the stairs. It’s the final note of Mahler’s 11th heard through an iphone’s earbuds then told its parents had died but why it should dance the polka anyway because life, of sorts, still goes on.

Available on double LP (1000 copies) on 8th January.

You can order the LP here or it will be available in all the usual shops.

The download release date will be 12th February.

books

The Chairman's Second Quarterly Reading List

1. “On Silbury Hill” by Adam Thorpe.
A lovingly written exploration of the history and continuing resonance of the Wiltshire landmark.

2. “The Whites” by Richard Price writing as Harry Brandt.
Tightly written tales of redemptive murder investigated by veteran New York cops. A genre-transcending piece of work.

3. “The People” by Selena Todd.
A history of the British working class from 1910 to the present. The similarity in the attitudes to the poor then and now is chilling.

4. “Gertrude” by Herman Hesse
An exploration of love and art and the joy and pain that commitment to either or both brings.

5. “Athena” by John Banville.
More love and art but this time swirling around in a world of counterfeit and pretence.

6. “Station To Station” by James Atlee
Mr Atlee collects his laminated pass and travels the Great Western Line and manages to connect Arthur Rimbaud, Stanley Spencer, Diana Dors and Haile Selassie to name but a few.

7. “Night Walking” by Mathew Beaumont.
A literary based history of nocturnal wandering, exploration and transgression.

8. “The White Album” by Joan Didion.
Joan Didion writes in an attempt to make sense of her existence, in reading her we go some way to making sense of ours.

9. “Fatale” by Jean-Patrick Manchette
More redemptive murder but this time our protagonist is a femme fatale in the classic style. Hot blood and Gallic cool.

10. “The Nazi and The Psychiatrist” by Jack El-Hai.
Experiments in criminal psychology with those awaiting trial at Nuremberg as subjects leads one doctor to come to a frightening realisation, viewing leading nazis as victims of personality disorders is a way of ignoring a far more frightening fact that their lives reveal. The fact being that civilization is perilously fragile.
