Weatherall's history goes back far to the beginning of the British acid house scene having swung gigs for himself at Danny Rampling's legendary Shoom night he was part of the original Boys Own record label (and fanzine) which led to artist releases, remixes and a string of legendary London clubs such as Blood Sugar, Circulation, and of course Sabresonic (where the fledgling David Holmes cut his teeth). It was through Primal Scream though that Andrew first made his name. As the producer of Screamadelica he took The Primals, twisted them (best not to ask how) and in turn created the hybrid of narcotically challenged rock and acid house now seen as a generation-defining release.
It was through the club Sabresonic and Andrew's remix productions that he tied in with Jagz and Burns forming the live/ studio Sabres of Paradise band. More often than not shows would see Andrew standing at the side of the stage possibly doing fuck all other than smoking fags. No one was quite sure. What is certain is that these experiences drew Andrew away from the Screamadelica-inspired lime-light that beckoned and back into the subterrain to develop the dark, experimental sounds he has subsequently become known and respected for.
