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.

Number 6

Portmerion is an Italianate 1920s village in North Wales, film set to 60s TV series The Prisoner, and well worth a visit if you’re ever in the area. Especially this weekend. The Number 6 festival is being held there with a line-up that looks like it was put together from a Bagging Area playlist including New Order, Primal Scream, Spiritualized, Richard Hawley, Death In Vegas and, wait for it, Andrew Weatherall’s A Love From Outer Space.

Obviously, I’m not able to go. We’re at Alton Towers for a charity family weekend with the MPS Society (the charity that looks after children with MPS diseases and their families. That’s us). I mean, the charity weekend will be good and everything, and we get to go in the theme park and use the Splash Landings water park, and it’s great to see other families who live with the disease just as we do, and everything, but… well, you know. To add insult to injury at least one of my brothers is going. And a friend of mine is going. And he’s borrowed our tent. Grrrrr. Curses.

Here’s Death In Vegas remixed by Two Lone Swordsmen, a belting  TLS remix.
