Andrew Weatherall Getting Psychedelic

Written by: 8 October 2015 2 Comments

FROM BAGSHOT TO SILBURY HILL

A mix by Andrew Weatherall inspired by the new book ‘Psychedelia and Other Colours’ by Rob Chapman, published on September 3 2015 by Faber & Faber. The book features an introduction from Andrew Weatherall.

Andrew on the mix:

“Deadlines were passing and and I needed a kick up the arse, but with an army of psychic skeletons waiting to surge across synapses should they be lysergically fired, going “gonzo” was not an option when I found myself lacking Caliope’s influence. I needed to get back on the bus but knew that the cost of a ticket was one I was unwilling to pay.My sanity is priceless. I needed a “madeleine moment” but tea and cake wasn’t going to cut it. Casting my mind back to my first trip I remembered a good part of it was spent on a large Victorian brass bed listening to the static between stations on a transistor radio.I heard my own internal soundtrack, music made of ether and electricity. It was then it struck me. A sonic key was required. After some hours spent in the bunker’s research library I compiled a collection of music that crackled and fizzed within a nebulous fog. Static charges mirroring synaptic fireworks. On mixing and playing the result was immediate. The foreword was written.”
