Andrew Weiss is a bass guitarist and producer.
Andrew Weiss is an American musician, composer, audio engineer and Grammy winning record producer. Born in Chicago, Andrew spent most of his youth growing up in central New Jersey where he later started playing bass with local bands while attending Princeton High School. In 1982 he teamed up with William Tucker and high school buddy Sim Cain to form Regressive Aid, an instrumental no wave band that released a 4 song EP in 1983 and a 6 song LP the following year. Around this time, Andrew began his experimentations with electronic music and recording. This led to a collaboration with his friend Jeff Rusnack, partnersinWonder, and together they founded Bird'o'Pray Records, a cassette only label that featured electronic and alternative music, including the first releases by the New Hope, Pa. duo Ween.
In 1985, Regressive Aid caught the attention of Black Flag founder/guitarist Greg Ginn who then recruited Andrew and Sim to travel to Los Angeles and form Gone, an instrumental punk/jazz power trio. In 1986 Gone recorded 3 albums for SST Records and played over 500 gigs throughout the USA touring in support of Black Flag as well as performing guerrilla type shows in record stores. The end of the year saw the demise of both Gone and Black Flag, at which point Andrew and Sim teamed up with Black Flag vocalist Henry Rollins and Washington DC guitarist Chris Haskett to form the Rollins Band. It was also around this time that Andrew began to further pursue adventures in music production and engineering, enlisting Ween and local NJ act Skunk as guinea pigs. In 1989, he produced and engineered albums for both bands which were subsequently snatched up by the Minneapolis indie label Twin Tone. Soon thereafter, he also produced a duo project with Rollins for Chrysalis Records, dubbed Wartime, on which Andrew wrote, played, and recorded all the music himself while Henry wrote the lyrics and performed the vocals.
I see at least couple of accidents a week outside my window, guaranteed. So whatever they can do to provide relief is welcome. It's very hectic throughout the day. And it can be a real problem for our customers to get into the parking lot. It's so hard that sometimes they can't even get in because it's constantly bumper to bumper.
