I'm totally gutted by this news. I spent many happy nights dancing to his sets in my London days. I was listening to The Fifth Mission only last night.

Man, he made so much great music, and pretty much reconstructed mediocre tracks from scratch to make them the great tracks that they became. A greater remixer, but so much more.

Apparently there is almost nothing of the band on ‘Loaded’ other than Bobby Gillespie - that was pretty much all Andrew Weatherall...

i remember various articles along the lines of "oh no! rock band hires dance dj to produce album"
in the music press, then it came out and was an almost instant classic :hihi:

Ah man this sucks. Not least because I'm nearly his age :(

His Happy Mondays Hallelujah remix was everywhere the year it came out.

Still love Haunted Dancehall, bit of a game changer for me. He played a local hall just before Christmas (Ramsgate music hall, lovely place, your should go) but of course I didn't go...
