2004 release. Every so often, reference is made to dance being dead, or rock being healthy, or vice versa. It implies the two things have an inverse relationship; that they can't co-exist. It's a load of old nonsense, as the work of Andrew Weatherall serves to prove. A cursory glance at his discography -- featuring Creation, Heavenly, Factory, Rough Trade, One Little Indian, Warner, Talkin' Loud, Island, Boy's Own, Deconstruction, Warp, Rotters' Golf Club, etc. -- undermines the cliché further. Or put another way: trends don't sell records, artists do. Andrew Weatherall lives his life in small print, not bold text, always supporting the independents, and ever ready to back the underdog. He cares for fashion but not what is fashionable. Nothing about him is painstakingly planned, or coolly calculated. Fabric 19 is Andrew's second or third official mix CD (it's a little hard to tell for certain). Inspired by a DJ set at Fabric, in support of the band !!!, he began to stick any deep and sleazy house tracks he found in a separate pile at home. For the mix, he's blended them with a few deep and druggy records, and some sleek and poppy ones. It features electro, acid, house, techno, schaffel, synths, and electric guitars, and it provides many of his typical "moments"; the Egyptian Lover crashing into Sexual Harassment, for example, or the Joy Division-inspired selection of The Emperor Machine, to precede he and Keith Tenniswood's cover version of Ricardo Villalobos. Other artists include: Kango's Stein Massive, Syntax Erik, DJ T., Alexkid, Tomboy, Delon And Dalcan, Marc Romboy vs. Booka Shade, Martin Landsky, Jesper Dahlbäck, Steve Bug, Metope, Miwon, John Tejada, Black Devil, Kerrier District, 2 Lone Swordsmen, and Technova.
