VIDEO: Aphex Twin, Moscow Interview, 1994
Richard D. James is a man who cloaks himself in mystery. It’s rare to come across an interview with him, particularly in recent years, but this gem sprung up a few years ago and I just stumbled across it. The interview gets increasingly awkward and strane as it goes on. They start out asking some standard questions like why he chose to start out making music rather than DJing, but then move onto his haircut and his take on authentic folk music. Maybe something’s being lost in translation, but it makes for a bizarre few minutes regardless.
