I didn't think this day would come so soon, and I still can't believe it's real.

The world has lost a great, and I feel deeply saddened to know that he is no longer here in our world.
My first encounter with Weatherall was on 2nd February 2012 when I saw him play alongside Sean Johnston in Bristol for an incredible 6-hour deep dive into a new (to me) world of music they called ‘A Love From Outer Space’. It was a life-changing event, and I’ve tried to see him play live whenever I’ve had the opportunity. I had the extreme pleasure to see him play at a number of different events at some unique places including The Golden Lion in Todmorden, Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall, and Convenanza Festival in Carcassonne.
Greg Wilson has written a lovely piece about him here: https://blog.gregwilson.co.uk/2020/02/andrew-weatherall/
In memory of him, I post here the (nearly) full set from 2012 that changed everything for me forever.
Goodbye Mr. Weatherall, you are deeply missed.
