I haven't finished my 2014 list yet- apologies for the tardiness, I know you're all waiting eagerly for my annual run down. As a sort of pre-list, a bowl of soup before the main course, here's a list of Andrew Weatherall's best remixes of 2014. A top nine (to the best of my knowledge there have only been nine remixes this year, which makes 2014 a bit of a quiet year for Lord Sabre). The links will take you to either Youtube or Soundcloud. I can't give away nine downloads in one post. Disappointingly to date only two of these have had a vinyl release, another two are available on cds. The internet only remix trailer is a sign of the times.
9. Primal Scream 'Goodbye Johnny' Andrew Weatherall's Nyabinghi Noir Mix
Dark and unsettling, stripped back with a sax and guitar stabs.
8. Noel Gallagher 'In The Heat Of The Moment' Andrew Weatherall Remix
Big and with bells. Noel arrives briefly at four minutes in.
7. Blue Rondo a la Turk 'Klactofilthedstein' Andrew Weatherall's Mixling
Techno remodelling of 80s jazz-funk. Better than that sounds.
6. She Lies 'Needed You' The Asphodells Remix
Lovely electro remix of Berliners.
5. Atari Teenage Riot 'J One M One' Andrew Weatherall Remix
Arpeggiator set to full, long and well worth it.
4. Richard Sen 'Songs Of Pressure' The Asphodells Remix
3. Group Rhoda 'King' The Asphodells Remix
2. Sam Roberts Band 'We're All In This Together' Andrew Weatherall Remix
Insistent drum machine, long with some gorgeous keening sounds.
1. Dayglo Maradona 'Rock Section' Andrew Weatherall Remix
Nine minutes fifty three of bliss, taking Julian Cope's fictional baggy band and sending them home.
