1. 10 years after Ondi Timoner’s DiG! (already?), the Willamette Week catches up with The Dandy Warhols’ Courtney Taylor, who is unsurprisingly eager to dispel the notion that the hilarious hubris on display in the documentary is an accurate portrayal. Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre has been similarly dismissive of the film in the past; as someone totally removed who enjoys the music of both bands, I just find it to be an enjoyable story. 

     
  2. And here’s October. 

     
     
  3. MC 900 Ft. Jesus and band perform “Falling Elevators” in 91 or 92. Would love have to seen this incarnation of the group - some real magic to the Welcome To My Dream album. 

     
     
  4. Autechre live at Warp25 in Krakow - pretty good quality for a bootleg.

  8. "The absolute epitome of awkward-bugger, hyper-technical, eternally-abstracting electronic experiementation – two Rochdale b-boys who moved from maximalist electro/rave through to impossibly complex audio sculptures that equal of anyone from the canon of 20th century academic electronic music for innovation and weirdness."

    FACT Mag on Autechre’s “Flutter” - the aptly picked #1 IDM track on their top 100 list (Aphex Twin at #2, of course - it had to be one of the two of them in the top slot).

  9. "MIDI: key to paradise or devil’s work?"
    From a music magazine, circa 1985.

     
  10. Aphex Twin - “MARCHROMT30A edit 2b 96 [104.98]”

    Japanese bonus track from Syro. Pretty great, much like the rest of the album.
