I'm not entirely sure we have made enough of a fuss about the bountiful amounts of Weatherall that are flowering in abundance right now. Though I didn't manage to play a track from it this week, the new Fuck Buttons album 'Tarot Sport' is a total mindbender, and it's also something like only the second album (not his own) that he's produced in the last 14 years or something riddiculous. If I were a doctor I would suggest that you need to visit your local crucial chemist or online supplier of beaty baked goods and get yourself a dose of that right nowest, repeat daily for as long as it takes.
Then there's the 'Andrew Weatherall Vs The Boardroom Vol 2' compilation on the man himself's Rotters Golf Club label, which includes 'Brother Johnston's Travelling Disco Consultancy' (oh for a huge PA and open eared crowd to lay that on) and several other Slough-stained epistles, as well as some spineful technoid contributions from the various Boardroom banditos.
The really big one is 'A Pox On The Pioneers', the first album to appear under his own name, with a fair bit of vocal malarkey and lyrical largesse from Andrew (no longer Andy) himshelf. It's a change-up, and a far more succesful one than his last vocal forays, for my money. The whole thing has a ring of 'Sandanista' era-Clash about it amongst many other flavours, not in a slavish way, in a way that puts a huge grin on my boat when driving around to it. That is a good thing.
I'm not going to wibble on about it too much - it's a love it or can't be bothered it with it scenario I reckons, and I'm personally down with anyone releasing a record that pushes out the borderlines on a two decade plus career and which forces folks to make a decision. I won't lie, the music is so wickedly evocative and heartfelt that I'd dearly love to hear an instrumental version, but that is in no way demeaning the vocal content because I reckon he's found his right spot amongst it, and some of the lyrics are straight out blinding, none of them are wasted. So with that in mind I'm going to post one of the wordy tracks, my suggestion is give it a few plays and don't jump to quick conclusions. My other suggestion is buy all of the above and get in touch with your inner Rotter, your cerebral Swordsman and/or your pertinently placed Paradisical Sabre, You know it makes sense.
Keep this frequency open, I'm threatening a bit of inter-show posting, don't really have the time right now but I'm just going to make it..because it must be done.. blah de blah.

The tashtacular Andrew looking ready to start a revolution.. an industrial revolution. Hang on... someone already did that.
Think we may have to do posts on them other releases, so consider this a gentle engine starter.
