Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 386 - Andrew Weatherall Special


Transmission 386 - Andrew Weatherall Special

This week's show is a tribute to Andrew Weatherall who very sadly died on Monday. The only other tribute editions we've done were for Lou Reed and Mark E Smith so this is something we save for the cream of the crop.

We've chosen a selection of tracks that he produced, remixed , recorded, compiled, played and might have played!

Up there with John Peel as a man of impeccable taste, maybe even surpassing Peelie who didn't leave us with a huge body of recorded work.

Chopping the cuts down to 20 meant some brilliant stuff fell by the wayside so expect plenty more over the coming weeks.

Cool and deadly.
