Autechre pin, any information?


Recommended Posts

I was rifling through my collection of tchotchkes and came across an Autechre pin, about 6x25mm in size - but I can't for the life of me remember where I got it from, though the typography seems to be LP5/EP7. I know it's official and from Warp.

Does anyone have information on it? I asked the internet (i.e. Google, both text and image search), and it found nothing, which is exceedingly rare.

Thank you for the offer, but... no.

I reached out to Warp, let's see what they say, if anything.

Here's some I quickly dug up from my archives. I've used one of the small stickers, don't remember where.

Nice schwag porn @dcom

Have you ever worn this Autechre pin?  Would go great on a North Face Jacket IMHO

Agree that the typography looks circa LP5/EP7.  It's such a quizzical item, not bizarre enough to be made ironically like, say Aphex logo toilet paper yet begs the question how did it come to exist?  If the internets and whattum haven't shed any light on it maybe your only option is to go the the 'chre bros themselves.  About time Papa reeled them in for another AAA :dadjoke:

Here are my copies of Oversteps and Exai, signed after the OneSix gig in Helsinki.

Looks like Untilted era to me.

Typography nerding: the "t" is different to the LP5/EP7 typeface and the text is thinner overall.

You're right that it's not LP5/EP7, because the pin's t has a terminal (the hook in the lower end of the stem) and the records don't. Draft 7.30 doesn't have the terminal either, but Untilted does; although the album's kerning seems to be a bit tighter than the pin's - maybe even negative - but Untilted it is.

They have lush signatures. Don't think I've ever seen them before.

Here's the third one from that encounter.
