Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust
The Asphodells is a partnership between Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J. Fairplay. Their friendship goes back to Tim’s time with Battant in the latter part of the 2000s with Andrew helping out on production. Musically the album’s yet another game changer. Andrew has left behind the rock and roll leanings of Wrong Meeting and A Pox on the Pioneers and looks back over his shoulder to the purer electronics of the Kraftwerk-inflected Two Lone Swordsmen but without the sparse introspection that characterised those times.
