Claiming to like Aphex Twin makes comeback

MUSIC listeners are pretending to enjoy the challenging electronica of Aphex Twin for the first time since the 1990s.

His hair was a massive influence on David Guetta

The artist released Syro this week, his first album since 2001 when his fanbase secretly preferred All Saints.

Music blogger Tom Booker said: “My favourite track? Well, probably CIRCLONT14 [152.97] [shrymoming mix] if I had to choose, but really it’s the kind of album you listen to from start to finish which I’m sure I will one day.

“Let’s just say I like them all.”

Self-styled experimental music fan Stephen Malley said: “Is it really 13 years since the last Aphex album? Because I still haven’t managed to lose my virginity.

“Cultivating an extensive knowledge of obscure, confrontational electronic music really is the most ineffective way to impress girls.”

Richard D James, who records as Aphex Twin, said: “I thought recording an album of unabashed EDM stadium bangers, with guest vocals from Miley Cyrus, Olly Murs and Pitbull, would confound the critics.

“But it’s like they all wrote their reviews without even bothering to stick it on.”
