Mr. Strawberry wrote:How did you find out about Autechre? For me, it was just extremely good luck. My friend Steve is a real music lover. It's his life, and back when we worked together in a record store, we talked about music all the time. He'd kind of been with electronic music from the beginning, going to see Kraftwerk and the like starting back in the 1960's. Anyway, one day about 20 years ago, I happened to mention Richard D. James and with a smile he goes, "Man, if you like Aphex Twin, then Autechre would be the next logical progression." He took me over to their section in the store and grabbed Tri Repetae++ from the bin. I bought it, went home, threw on some headphones and had my mind blown!
By the way, Autechre released an 8 hour work back in April, and there's an Aphex Twin EP coming out tomorrow.
Oddly enough, some weird youtube video forever ago that I've never seen again that mixed black and white Teletubbies (or was it Boobah?) footage to Aphex Twin, Autechre, and others. But pretty much the same as you, association with Aphex Twin in various ways, and I checked them out every time I saw them compared, though only until a few weeks ago did I finally click with some of Autechre's music. What finally did it was the Anti EP, which I checked out because I was reading up on the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, and found out about what's covered here
And yeah, already waiting for it in the mail.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.
