There may never be another quite like Andrew Weatherall. The legendary producer’s new EP Unknown Plunderer / End Times Sound emerges in the aftermath of his death in February 2020, and it serves to remind us what a fantastically singular artist Weatherall remained throughout his life. This record almost acts as a microcosm of everything great about Weatherall’s work, its tracks fusing the soundsystem potency of dub with cosmic house, a psychedelaic’s ear for unusual sounds and the iconoclastic irreverence of post-punk. So many other artists are invoked in Wetherall’s work, a sign of a true music-lover, and one can discern Adrian Sherwood, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and the most playful corners of Brian Eno’s sample-heavy output here. But most of all this is instantly recognisable as one thing alone; top shelf Weatherall. It is fitting that remix contributions for Unknown Plunderer / End Times Sound should come from Keith Tenniswood’s Radioactive Man project - Tenniswood, of course, sparred alongside Weatherall in Two Lone Swordsmen - and Manfredas, an artist very much in Weatherall’s image. Rest in peace Andrew.
