Bleep Years day thirteen: Aphex Twin's Avril 14th (2001)

For those just tuning into this blog, we're in the middle of Bleep Years, a series which fragments the life of Fat Roland into twenty annual musical masterpieces. We're about two thirds through. Personally, my music tastes have changed. I now like country and western, acid jazz and the sound of vomiting.

2001: Aphex Twin's Avril 14th

It would be foolish for me to shove a load of Aphex Twin history down your neckhole. Firstly, the Twin featured just a week ago in this series. Like Plaid, he is important enough to get a second mention. Secondly, you're reading a blog that, according to the tags further down the page, has mentioned Aphex Twin 54 times, 55 including this post, which is a frequency of once every seven weeks and accounts for 8.7% of all blog posts on Fat Roland On Electronica.

I also don't need to explain why this track is such an emotive memory. And so, today, Bleep Years is hella short because, like the best music, the noise about to drift into your ears speaks for itself...
