Unlike the mixes I usually flag up for free download, this five-hour spin by Andy Weatherall is by no means hot off the decks - so to speak. Recorded live at the Waxwerks record store in Leeds, the first-half appeared online when Weatherall’s old Back to Basics pal Ralph Lawson uploaded it to his eponymous blog in mid-January. Since then, it’s been doing the rounds on music forums, and its recurring endorsement finally led me to give it a listen. Upon doing so, I discovered the second part was also now available to download. Unsurprisingly, both halves are packed with killer groove and spacious depth - all the time running to Weatherall’s signature stye of effortless momentum. Meaning, by the time I was an hour in, I’d already decided it was going to have to make a belated appearance on The Pen.
