Aphex Twin not short of new albums

By | Published on Friday 29 October 2010

The world has been waiting patiently for the follow-up to Aphex Twin’s 2001 album, ‘Drukqs’ with little fuss, but I’m not sure he’s prepared for the shit that’s gonna kick off now he’s revealed that he’s completed six albums in that time and just chosen not to release any of them.

Speaking to Another Man magazine, the Twin, aka Richard D James, said: “I’ve got six [albums] completed. Two are very non-commercial, abstract, modular-synthesis, field recordings – those I finished four years ago. Another one is ‘Melodies From Mars’, which I redid about three years ago. There’s one of stuff I won’t go into; a comp of old tracks which is never really finished and always changing; and then one I’m working on now. There are also loads of tracks which don’t belong anywhere”.

So, if you see any riots this afternoon, that’s why.
