51

A reader (Colin Dickson) sent me a link to this recently- Mr Weatherall live at the Hacienda in 1993- you can find it at BLOG51. The blogpost also mentions Hacienda resident dj Tom Wainwright, who I went to school with and, true fact, whose sister was my first girlfriend (aged 13 or something).

Brunswick Drive

Brunswick Drive by Black Merlin was the third release on Weatherall’s Bird Scarer Records. I have this one and Bird Scarer 002 though missed out on Bird Scarer 001. Does that irk me? Yes it does. This is the B-side, remixed by Scott Fraser. High quality electronic sounds for Saturday morning. No dl, listen only- it’s a vinyl only series, part of the Bird Scarer aesthetic.
