Video: Techno-Punk Andrew Weatherall Is 50 And He's Way Cooler Than You

Travel into the deepest recesses of the Rotters Golf Club studio with the chain-smoking cult hero.

Andrew Weatherall is everything you want from a crusty cult producer: bitingly funny, slightly off-kilter, and a touch misanthropic. He's the ultimate inspiration for those seeking longevity in electronic music, having held down a totally rad, weird career as a DJ and producer for over 25 years. His history spans from DJing the legendary UK acid house clubs of the 80s (Shoom, Trip, Spectrum) to remixing Primal Scream and New Order to his current project The Asphodells, where he and friend Timothy Fairplay meld techno, dub, and shoegaze to hypnotic effect.
