A personal hero of mine, famed UK producer/DJ Andrew Weatherall has a new album out this week under the name of The Asphodells. The album is called Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust.
The Asphodells is a partnership between Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J. Fairplay. Their friendship goes back to Tim’s time with Battant in the latter part of the 2000s with Andrew helping out on production. Musically the album’s yet another game changer. Andrew has left behind the rock and roll leanings of Wrong Meeting and A Pox on the Pioneers and looks back over his shoulder to the purer electronics of the Kraftwerk-inflected Two Lone Swordsmen but without the sparse introspection that characterised those times.
Order Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust direct from them: CD and double LP here and downloads here.
