'A Love From Outer Space' boat party @ Electric Elephant.
Since the launch of their monthly residency in the basement of The Three Crowns pub in Stoke Newington last may Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston have been ploughing a decidedly different musical furrow. Taking its title from the old A.R. Kane track of the same name, 'A Love From Outer Space' was basically an excuse for Weatherall and Johnston to helm the decks themselves for the entire night and play anything they bloody well wanted to. The smaller, 140 capacity basement lends itself ideally to a much more esoteric selection with the duo able to mine far more deeply into the veins of dub, post-punk, Krautrock, psyche-disco, rock'n'roll, oddities and the like. A couple of weeks ago Andrew and Sean upped sticks and dragged the travelling ALFOS circus across Europe and plonked it down on the shores of the Adriatic to entertain the patrons of the Electric Elephant festival.
This is is a recording of what happened at the A Love From Outer Space boat party. It is very good! (And the link works now!)
