Why is there an Aphex Twin blimp flying over London right now?




If you take much stock into what’s currently flying over the city of London, it would appear Aphex Twin is up to something. As NME points out, today, a green blimp took to the skies near the music venue Oval Space. One side features Aphex Twin’s trademark logo, and the other reads “2014,” with the logo in place of the zero.


In addition, a stencil featuring the Aphex Twin logo recently appeared outside Radio City Music Hall in New York City.



Aphex Twin (aka Richard D. James) last released a new album in 2001 with Drukqs, and hasn’t performed live since 2012. However, he recently facilitated an auction for his long lost LP, Caustic Window.


It’s worth noting that Aphex Twin’s label, Warp Records, was also behind the cryptic publicity campaign for Boards of Canada’s comeback LP last summer.

New album I assume?    What else can it be?   Or new life show. 



I loved squarepusher live performance lightshow pyramid! So if Mr. Twin can pull something like that, it would be mega awesome.
