"Everyone is still reeling from the loss of Andrew Weatherall last week. It’s been hard to take in the magnitude of his passing with major features on; BBC News and Channel 4, national newspaper articles from The Observer to The Times and every major music publication. Weatherall truly transcended our little scene. Most heartwarming of all was the constant stream of stories that flowed and flowed until our social media feeds became a torrent of outpouring love for the man.
Andrew was booked to perform, as well as take part in our conference programme at inner city electronic 2020. We knew that we would like to honour him, but it’s been an extremely difficult week for everyone to process. However, the response has been phenomenal with friends traveling in from across Europe to make its happen.
Together we present:
A Tribute to Andrew Weatherall (Fail We May, Sail We Must) at Leeds College of Music, 6PM in The Venue auditorium.
Chris Madden will host long term friends and musical partners; Justin Robertson, Sean Johnston and Joe Muggs in a special talk with a selection of musical memories."

We were also moved to hear Sean Johnston will continue to perform under ALFOS at this years inner city electronic. Sheaf St will play host to our party with Love International Festival, also in tribute to the sadly missed electronic icon.
