Dive into the origins of Weatherall’s personal mantra “Fail We May, Sail We Must.”
Yesterday, February 17th marked the second anniversary of the passing of Andrew Weatherall aka Lord Sabre aka The Guv’nor. The British producer, musician, remixer, DJ, and label owner was known worldwide for his impeccable taste and fearless approach to music. You’re probably familiar with his groundbreaking rock-meets-acid-house production on Primal Scream’s Screamadelica or heard one of his essential genre-bending mixes. We’re big fans here at In Sheep’s Clothing…
A new short film has just been released telling the origins of Weatherall’s famous life mantra “Fail We Say, Sail We Must.” Produced by Dublin-based creative agency The Tenth Man and directed by Grizzly, the film recounts the story of a coincidental encounter between Weatherall and an Irish fisherman named Gerard Sheehy.
From The Tenth Man: “In rural county Cork, a lone fisherman met a weary traveller who was on his way to a gig. They soon began to exchange stories, namely tales of the sea. During their conversation, the seafarer shared a sentiment that would stay with his passenger forever: ‘fail we may, sail we must.'”
