TLS

Still My World

Two Lone Swordsmen

In 2003 Rotters Golf Club was approached by the Italian fashion house Emigliano Zegna to create some music to help launch their first foray into Japan. Andrew and Keith grabbed some tracks they had been working on, polished them up and swapped them for a small advance and a large raid on their Bond Street store. They then turned their attention to the next TLS album proper. This was Double Gone Chapel where rock and psychobilly were mixed in with electronica and controversially Andrew added his own vocals. The Zegna album ‘Still My World’ was side-lined by a live band and a whole new direction.

Andrew’s untimely death refocused attention on his historical recordings and ‘Still My World’, previously only released in Japan, now sees the light of day in the rest of the world.

The album will be released on 180g vinyl for Record Store Day on 20th April 2024.

RSD

Warpaint 'The Fool' Weatherall Mixes

On the completion of the recording of Warpaint’s debut album The Fool, Andrew Weatherall was given access to the album’s master tapes to work on mixes for the finished record. The track Baby, along with the iconic single Undertow, were both mixed by the Guv’nor and appeared on the finished album that was released in 2010.

For the first time ever, this Record Store Day edition brings together all the mixes Weatherall created while working on the project, including a never released before, finished version of Jubilee. The full album mixed and sequenced in the order Andrew envisaged (different to the original track order of ‘The Fool’) will be released as a limited edition double album in a gatefold sleeve on yellow vinyl with new artwork for RSD 2021.

Out 12th June 2021, more info 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
