FRIENDLY POTENTIAL PRESENTS ANDREW WEATHERALL & A LOVE FROM OUTER SPACE
SATURDAY 2ND DECEMBER, GATALOS, 17 GALATOS STREET, AUCKLAND CITY
Andrew Weatherall is the definition of legendary. He first emerged as a resident DJ at pioneering London acid-house club Shoom and co-author of fanzine Boy’s Own. After that, he quickly went on to produce Primal Scream’s classic album Screamadelica, create an insane number of records under a ridiculous number of aliases, remix everyone from New Order to the Happy Mondays, launch a number of record labels (current count: three), and command dancefloors worldwide with mesmerising all-night DJ sets.
Throughout his life, Weatherall has carved a curious, serpentine path through the fringes of electronic music. This has included his work with a variety of collaborators as Two Lone Swordsmen, Woodleigh Research Facility, and The Sabres of Paradise – projects that tend to self-destruct when they are on the verge of getting too big.
More recently, his path has seen him verge toward sublimely narcotic dance music – primarily DJed alongside Sean Johnston (The Hardway Bros) as A Love From Outer Space, and showcased on his recent album Qualia. Weatherall puts it best himself – “The basic need for transcendence is part of the human condition, and has been for thousands of years. If I can help people get there - then all the better.”
