Interview: Andrew Weatherall (24/10/2009)

Dapper, bookish, a connoisseur of everything from beard-stroking techno to punk, soul and rockabilly: Andrew Weatherall really needs no introduction. After his production of Primal Scream’s ‘Screamadelica’ set the blueprint for what became know as indie-dance, he went on to pioneer the UK’s acid house scene and make seminal electronic music in the 90s with Sabres Of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen.
For such a prolific figure it’s something of an anomaly that it has taken until 2009 for a solo album to emerge (A Pox on The Pioneers, Rotters Golf Club), although, in typical Weatherall fashion, it came amidst a frenzy of other projects and the revelation that he already has a second album all but finished. “Wevvers” took some time out to chat to Juno Plus scribe Aaron Coultate about polar explorers, Edwardian fashion and the similarities between rockabilly and techno.
