A statement from Andrew Weatherall’s family:

What can be said about the past year? It was exactly a year ago that we lost Andrew, my gorgeous partner and best mate and Iain’s beautiful big brother. Losing someone so vibrant, creative and loving was beyond devastating and that day is one we choose not to relive. However, it is important to mark our Dear Boy’s passing. We shall be marking it as a family in a close-knit way as it is still too raw to do anything public right now. There will be plenty of opportunity in the future to memorialise Andrew and his incredible and extensive legacy, however, we would love to do that when it is possible to hug, laugh and dance again. In the meantime, alongside us, please raise a glass, read a good book, paint something wonderful, do a dance or just hold those dear to you close as this past year has taught us that life is too short.

We want to thank our wonderful family, beautiful friends and all of you, as Andrew would have said “from the heart of our bottom” for the incredible support and love shown over this past year. Thank you for the fantastic and heart-warming tributes to someone who has left an immense hole in our lives, yet such and indelible mark on the world. To say we miss him beyond words is an understatement. We know he’ll be with us forever alongside Bob, Andrew and Ian’s dear father. May they be eating fine steak together in the infinite cosmos.

Big love from Lizzie and Ian. xx

In A Lonely Place

IWDG

Any follower of Andrew Weatherall (a particularly fervent and erudite tribe) will be familiar with ‘The Sons of Slough.’ Comprising Andrew’s brother Ian and Duncan Gray, they have produced music together for twenty years and throughout Andrew has been an avid supporter playing their records at his shows, helping Duncan set up his Tici Taci label and generally being a good friend.

Ian and Duncan have reworked New Order’s “In a Lonely Place” as a homage to Factory and the inspiration they were to a whole generation. David Holmes, Keith Tenniswood and Sean Johnston (all long time Weatherall collaborators) used the track as a jumping off point bringing Factory, New Order, their own musical perspective and most of all Andrew together in a unique tribute to shared times and fond memories.

The digital version will be released to mark the first anniversary of Andrew’s passing on February 17th. Vinyl will follow in June.

Weatherall mixes on Movement Radio

Our friends at Movement Radio will be hosting a series of mixes by Andrew to mark the anniversary of his passing on Weds 17th February. As you would expect they run the musical gamut including rock ‘n’ roll, dub, electro and more.

Listen from 15.00 to 19.00 GMT here.

Andrew WeatherallWith the slight easing of the lockdown we are now able to focus on the future and how we can celebrate Andrew’s legacy.

We are in the early stages of planning a celebration of his life at a live event, in a book and as a film.

We are only just beginning to catalogue his studio contents, a wealth of music, jottings and the incessant confirmation of an unrestrained life full of experiences and interests limited only by the time he had over when not making or playing music.

We would welcome any anecdotes and reminiscences, photographs, drawings, posters or other artefacts and ephemera that shed light on his life. We are also hoping to have at the event a means by which friends and admirers can record their thoughts and memories to include in the archive.

Please send anything you might have to contact@rottersgolfclub.com.

If someone other than yourself needs to be acknowledged, (e.g. a photographer), please include the credit. The photograph on this page is by John Barrett.

If you wish to mark his memory we would be grateful for any donations made to charities that were important to him:
Amnesty International
Multiple Sclerosis Society
Thrombosis UK
Crisis
