About this item
Almost exactly a year after his first EP on Byrd Out (the Kiyadub EP), the legendary Andrew Weatherall returns with new material for a second release. Andrew invited a mate round to his studio to try out a Les Paul his friend was looking to buy. As it turns out, his mate was Ride's (and Oasis') guitarist Andy Bell. Anyway, Andrew suggested he test the guitar out over a track he was working on, and ‘Making Friends With The Invader’ is the resulting track, which Andrew paired with the EP’s title track ‘Blue Bullet’. Both tracks plough the trippy, cosmic dub furrow, and come in at a weighty 8 and 9 minutes plus. On the A-side "Blue Bullet" pairs a gloomy post-punk B-line with mindwarping dub fx and flawless sound design, winding out the subs like a stoned Golden Teacher or Adrian Sherwood in a K-hole. Over on the flip Wevvers knocks up a more traditionally dubby bassline, makes liberal use of the fx units and leaves space for Andy Bell to strum, pick and shred somewhere between shoegaze, ska and Floyd. 1000 vinyl only. Grab them while you can! Mastered by Noel Summerville. Artwork by G.S-L Studio.
