This is the fucking guy who with his first big check from royalties, BUYS A TANK and sets it on his property, the man who carves his own face into Windowlicker, and has brilliant song titles like "Flaphead" and "Cow Cud is a Twin."

He's the fucking Zeppelin of electronic.

The Richard D. James album is easily in my top 20 records. And that isn't even to say that that's his best since everyone of his full-lengths are different and amazing. In fact, the only electronica i'd rate higher than Aphex Twin are Squarepusher or Boards of Canada.

I love Aphex. I've been really getting into his ambient works latley.... windowlicker is a great satirical video... buhh...The man is a genious.

Didn't he win some contest where he made a TV put out different tonal values depending on the color being projected when he was 10?

Sektor, you, yourself, border on genius with that statement.
Ultravisitor is easily one of my favorite albums of all time and is furthermore, one of the smartest, most well-thought out albums of all time.

Technically, it's an armoured defense vehicle. And he used to drive it around London. One time, he ran over a car with it by accident.

the man who carves his own face into Windowlicker

That is pretty much his real life face, just charicaturized for the video.

Also, I'm a huge fan of his, especially his work under the name Caustic Window.
