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.

‘Techno-Punk Andrew Weatherall is 50 and he’s cooler than you’ - THUMP

Howard Davis: The French Dispatch - Wes Anderson's New Yorker Tribute

Very few contemporary American film directors can claim to have earned the title of auteur, but for sheer visual invention and cinematic joie de vivre, there is no more consistent director working in Hollywood today than Wes Anderson. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
