About this item

Andrew Weatherall is no stranger to rock and roll. Generally credited with inventing indie dance through his work with Primal Scream, Flowered Up and My Bloody Valentine he pioneered the crossover between big electronic beats and equally big guitar chords. His fondness for good old fashioned rock'n'roll is celebrated with this release. With elements of garage and rockabilly mixed in with the more familiar layers of electronica this album both promises and delivers a whole new direction. Weatherall argues that rock'n'roll is a lot more futuristic in its way than most electronic music at the moment. 'Go to the past, but look to the future, don't get bogged down in the present. It's about distilling the essence, be it from the 50s or the present day'. "Wrong Meeting II" wears its influences on its sleeve while sounding utterly contemporary. Once again TLS has created an album that looks to push boundaries between musical genres and remain challenging to the listener. Best described by DJ magazine as 'raw scuzz-rock that sounds like PiL remixing the Birthday Party'.
