Living In The Land Of Ice And Frost
Some Weatherall for Friday morning- just what the doctor ordered- and the standout song from Two Lone Swordsmen's Wrong Meeting lp, back in 2007; rolling drums, lead bass, nagging guitar and a cracker of a lyric, sung by the man himself. When the definitive Weatherall Best Of compilation gets made, this one will be on it.
Get Out Of My Kingdom
Most of the country seems set to be a land of ice and frost this weekend, and if what the weather forecasters have predicted comes to pass I may end up getting to work but then trapped in east Lancashire, spending the night at work. The road home, the A666 towards Bolton and then Manchester, is not a road to cross in a blizzard.
Ofsted have come and gone and the outcome, after all the hard work and stress, looks good.
While I'm here, there are two interviews with Mr Weatherall about the upcoming Asphodells album, which from what I've heard so far is an absolute belter (out soon on double vinyl, get it ordered from Rough Trade and get a bonus cd of remixes and stuff). Both worth reading, this one at Beats And Beyond is a real in depth job. There's another long one from Scotland's The Skinny together with a review of the lp. Meanwhile Proper has a short feature on Weatherall's favourite five.
