  1. It's a shame as it will never happen, but he needs an archivist. Someone to dig through all of the shit he has and just get down to it with info, etc. on all these random tracks and find those back stories.
  2. No you aren't. So sick when an album or song clicks and you get it. Whenever that is. The best thing is that from there, you can just own it. Heliosphan is incredible but in 2020 I am not going to listen to it 15 times a day. I wish I only just discovered it, to get that feeling back.
  3. Kinda feels like one person is going in a little hard on IDEM for no real reason other than to prove a point which he already made in his first response. All feels a bit 'internet 2006'. I'm sure things had moved along since then. Would have been nicer to have just read through some excited talk about the album in question rather than some sideman chatter akin to "my dads harder than your dad' but whatever. Now I am contributing to that. Great. PS. I wasn't that arsed about SAW 85-92 for a bit. Post RDJ it clicked...love it.
  4. When you talk about your friend, I feel like you could be talking about me...but I still can 100% get down with what you say. In fact, I am kind of envious. My listening in the past 15 years is vastly different compared to before that... Maybe it is time for a Walkman again.
  5. Yeah, it's not new...same as the mp3 I've had since July '17.
  6. My first Aphex album. For some reason, at the age of 17, I bought it on CD and vinyl. Glad I did... I used to work in the original CEX store (Computer Exchange as it was called, back then) where it was introduced to me by Charlie Brooker (of Black Mirror/Nathan Barley fame) who I worked with there for about 4 years. Most of the staff were into the album but Ventolin would always get one or two people moaning. We'd be super busy on a Saturday afternoon where all the staff would be locked in working with customers and I'd always use that chance to press "Repeat" and see how long it would take for people to notice how long it had been on for. Sometimes you could get a full 20 minutes before someone would run the the CD player screaming at me. Great times. Alberto is on of the finest pieces of music ever written. Like the OP, whenever I revisit, it still sounds so fresh. Took me a few years to really notice the dates and realise it was written over several years. I remember making a MiniDisc version where the songs played chronologically...
  7. I don't believe this was ever on Soundcloud as part of the dump. It got added to the Aphex store as an extra to Come To Daddy and that was it...
  8. Re-release of SAW1? Isn't this one of god knows how many albums he's mentioned he is rereleasing in the past five years of the Soundcloud existing? Would be nice if something started to happen with any one of those...
  9. That shrink wrap is definitely just a layer slapped over the top in Photoshop as opposed to being a physical thing.
  10. Ah, yes. Never noticed that bit where you click to see replies. Nice one.
  11. I can't see that at all. Are you talking about the OP discogs link to the TP?
  12. Oh man...Vinyl has arrived. So happy. Sounds great on a proper system! Weirdly, the account on site has no link to digital files for me. ? Any ideas?
  13. All mine have - but sometimes the download doesnt appear for a few days...
  14. Is a 50/50 deal standard? Either way, Warp do quite a lot - from pressing to distribution it is quite a task. Plus on top of that, they market the fuck out of stuff (Blimps, tube ads, instore visuals, music videos, etc). The Bleep store is just a smart move by Warp as with any brand selling direct to consumer...You get the markup which record stores would normally take. Maybe Rich does have a better deal than others but then he probably gives a lot of that leverage up as he does fuck all of the marketing side himself unlike other artists...No social presence, barely any interviews, etc. Wasn't there an interview with someone from Warp who was saying that he is a nightmare on that stuff as he just wants to make music and nothing else. Could be wrong...
  15. I had no intention of trying to be the smartest guy in the room...just sparking conversation.
