Aphex Twin: The Six Lives Of Richard D. James

David Bennun, Melody Maker, 1 May 1993

APHEX TWIN you already know. Or at least you should do — he's been described as the hottest bleepmaster on the block, been dubbed 'The One-Man Kraftwerk', and he's just remixed the fab new Saint Etienne single. But there's even more to Aphex Twin aka RICHARD D JAMES than that, having released records under a variety of pseudonyms — Polygon Window, PCP, The Dice Man, among many others. DAVID BENNUN meets the mercurial whiz-kid from Cornwall and learns about his multiple personalities.
