Title: Aphex Twin (Drukqs)
Post by: Bud_Clay on February 22, 2003, 12:34:26 AM
electronica at it's finest. has anyone seen/heard about the new movie "Morvern Callar"?...the fact that it used the Aphex Twin song "nannou" in the trailer caught my interest. not too many filmmakers are using electronica.

well im also not that sure about doom generation using electronica...wasnt it dj techno? i never saw 8mm so i cant comment on that. anyway i totally forgot about pi, requiem for a dream and fight club...that's still only 3 however... and when i made that comment i really meant the down right authentic electronica such as aphex twin, squarepusher, & MUM.....i dare anyone to name a film using such artists...

That's Con Air. 8 mm is about him looking for the source of a snuff film.

I think you mean Experimental... Electronica covers all aspects of Electronic music. From Trip-hop to Jungle.

Good taste in music though... Richard D James is god! =)


Check out the stuff he did as AFX, Polygon Window, Caustic Window. Also in case you don't know he is releasing a new Remix album in march called "26 mixes for cash"

I absolutely love the stuff he did as AFX. I even have some of the albums he did as Universal Indicator (although that's not at all his best stuff).. i'm very interested to hear Richard as Polygon Window however. Christ he has a lot of stuff. Tell me how 26 Mixes For Cash is if/when you hear it!

I listen to Aphex Twin, and Drukqs has to be the biggest piece of shit he could produce. Rumor had it he made this album to get out of his record contract.....hence the shitty album.

PS-The video for Windowlicker has to be one of the best ever..

I can't say anything about that rumour, but as for your view of the album, I have nothing to say except: "incorrect".

I respect your opinion, as i hope you do mine.

Dont get me wrong, I love Aphex. I just didnt care for Drukqs.

Are they ever going to finish that promo that made for Drukqs..the one with the guy in the wheelchair.

Quite right. I cant imagine anyone who likes Aphex Twin not liking Drukqs. It consists of everything that makes Aphex Twin a genius & even a more developed genius.

Although I am not a big Nicolas Cage fan, I think 8mm was a good movie (atleast worth seeing once).  I also think using "Come To Daddy" in the film was a smart move. Why you ask? Well...when Nicolas Cage sneaks into Machine's house (to kill him), he had that record on.  I think using it gave some foresight as to what was going to occur.  When Cage came to the top of the stairs you could hear the vocal part of the track where he says over and over "come to daddy". To me that says that "Machine" knew he was in the house and that one of them was going to die that night..... I also love the fact that they used a record instead of a cd.
