Andrew Weatherall plays Auckland's Galatos on 2 December

English electronic music visionary Andrew Weatherall plays Auckland's Galatos on Saturday December 2nd.

For the first time in nearly 25 years, we’re excited to invite one of electronic music’s most captivating figures to the Friendly Potential dance-floor; on Saturday December 2nd, ANDREW WEATHERALL touches down in Auckland to play a very special set at Galatos.

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 Sabres of Paradise – projects that seemed to self-destruct when they were 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.

International Art Centre: Rare Goldie Landscape Expected To Fetch $150,000

When Evening Shadows Fall is one of four works by Goldie included in a sale of Important and Rare Art at the International Art Centre in Parnell on November 28. Goldie painted only a handful of landscapes, concentrating mainly on indigenous portraits, which earned him a global reputation as NZ’s finest painter of respected Māori elders (kaumātua). More

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
