Can I Draw Your Picture?

Portrait of Space, Lee Miller, 1937

Back in 2009 Andrew Weatherall remixed Can I Colour In Your Hair? by Lark and apart from appearing on Soundcloud it has been unreleased ever since. The remix is a rocking dub version, bouncing rhythms and echo, a wiry guitar part and repeated chants of ‘fire!’ It operates in the same space as the pair of remixes Weatherall did of Steve Mason’s Boys Outside at around the same time. Top quality stuff. At some point in the next few months it will be released on 7″ vinyl by Care In The Community Recordings and it is definitely a case of better late than never.


Number Six

Here’s our patron and musical/sartorial guide Mr Andrew Weatherall being interviewed by Emma Warren last weekend at Festival Number 6 in Portmerion. There are various rounds of this ongoing chat- Madrid, the ICA and Portmerion- you can find online. The Festival Number 6 in Portmerion looked great and despite my contacts who went getting washed out on the Sunday, the family Swiss are going to be there next year one way of another. Join us under canvas if you like.

Can I Colour In Your Hair? (Andrew Weatherall Dub Mix)

This remix (from 2009 or thereabouts but only available this year) is superb. Play loud.

Can I Draw Your Picture?

This appeared on Soundcloud about a month ago, a superb and unreleased Weatherall dub mix of Lark’s Can I Colour In Your Hair? from 2009. I think it first showed up at Double Gone Radio but it’s never had a physical release which is a shame because this clanging, speaker-rattling remix would sound ace on vinyl. It’s a bit of a forerunner of his two dubs of Steve Mason’s Boys Outside (another peak period Weatherall remix never physically released to the best of my knowledge).

And that’s Man Ray’s portrait of Le Corbusier by the way.
