"Is it true that Warp Records founder Steve Beckett once wanted to watch you have sex with some Japanese girls?"

"Good question. Yes, it is. Sorry Steve! It was in exchange for some johnnies."

Johnnies?

I just searched 'rubber johnny' to find this image quick and the search suggestion 'rubber johnny real' came up, that's halarious to see that some people are questioning or thinking it may be real. I wonder how many people have had nightmares and such from this video, good work Cunningham

It's such a light video, I don't get the fuss. I like it because it's fun...

yea, I love the video and don't find it frightening at all, and do think it is fun as well, but someone not in the same mindset or not really an Aphex fan might just be freaked out, the music alone can be scary, it adds to the intensity too, lots of foreign stuff there to someone who doesn't listen to much electronic music or watch many horror movies and such

 

edit: to sum it up, to some it's a complete mindfuck

 

the edit was just to say 'mindfuck'

I stumbled upon this John Peel interview from the nineties. Although probably well known, I hadn't seen it before. Some of you geeks possibly neither.

Good post goDel. Seen it before but enjoyed seeing again, though I think Richard working down a tin mine is a big Aphex lie (the cheeky grin gives it away)

He was probably pushing papers for the mining company ;-)

nice interviews, escpecially that Future Music one, didn't know that one

 

but i'm looking for an interview with him, around the release of the richard d james album.

it's a pretty long interview, on a pretty basic website, where he says that To Cure A Weakling Child is one of his most advanced tracks

and other things...

 

thanks in advance

Anyone have good links to the forum and message board postings Rich has made over the last few years? (only ones I seem to remember were some analogue forums and xltronic(I think?)).

In the last interview posted, Rich says it's cool to just download his shit without paying. real cool. can't wait for the leak.

Nice one Those are a lot better... I have many more bits including more Aphex, Ae, Plaid & tBD, Squarepusher and some Warp bits from various magazines and newspapers. Too many too mention... so I shall compile the Aphex related bits here for those who care ;)

I'm only paying for SYRO to trick Richard into having another "touching" moment where he realizes ppl still actually "care" (spend money)- and then he'll hopefully release more.

Thanks, both of you!

 

I believe the message you're thinking of is the "anyone remember when 303`s were £50? and coke was 16p a tin? crisps 5p" one. I believe the original post was deleted a long time ago, with no proper archive, although plenty of people copied and pasted it. I've got all the Panflet posts, but haven't singled them out as he clearly wanted his privacy for those.

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.

      Worth buying for the Mescalinium United's We Have Arrived TTQ Mix alone.
