Andrew Weatherall - album review
Sci-Fi Lo-Fi Volume 1: Andrew Weatherall
Stemming from the more natural dancefloor territory of Soma’s Sci-Fi Hi-Fi series, this new brand allows name DJs the opportunity to delve into the more eclectic areas of their collection. First up, then, is Andrew Weatherall’s rockabilly set, and it’s a match made in a particularly rowdy corner of heaven.
As is not entirely surprising from a man who made his name working with Primal Scream, Weatherall is a real rock classicist. So this collection follows a rowdy lineage from Gene Vincent and Link Wray, through to T-Rex and suitably stamping latterday cuts by the Scream, The Cramps, Killing Joke and The Fall’s eternally mighty ‘Big New Prinz’. An education then and a damn good compilation. (David Pollock)
