„What does pop music even mean in this day and age? […] It doesn’t mean anything anymore. Pop used to be something really cool, in the sixties especially. It was always the cool people that got famous. Nowadays, the cool people are not the famous people anymore. All famous people now aren’t cool. […] Correct me if I’m wrong, because I’m not really into it for a while, but pop nowadays is as light as a pack of toilet-paper.“

Aphex Twin – The Revenge of the Mask

Suddenly he is there again, Aphex Twin. The grinning head amidst shaking breasts and bums. A hero from the time MTV still actually played music videos. Pioneer of electronic music. Popicon. Thirteen years after Drukqs he returns with Syro and makes an end to the radio silence. Only a few interviews are held. Oor has the luck of being the very first in line and talks with an open hearted Richard, who decided to take of his mask.

THERE WE ARE, both ten years after the last decent interview. It was a very close call to have this secret meet-up even taking place. Richard missing the last train to the location in London almost resulted in a cancelled interview. Luckily there was still a sleep-train. What was lucky as well was that Richard could contain himself from not immediately returning home, because there were no power sockets on that train, and he wanted to make music. People got out for lesser reasons. Anyway, here he is across me in a restaurant of a hotel in London: Richard D. James, a few days after his 43rd s birthday, which he celebrated with friends in Cornwall.

„Der Satz, die Welt wolle betrogen sein, ist wahrer geworden, als wohl je damit gemeint war. Nicht nur fallen die Menschen, wie man so sagt, auf Schwindel herein, wenn er ihnen sei’s noch so flüchtige Grati­fi­katio­nen gewährt; sie wollen bereits einen Betrug, den sie selbst durch­schauen; sperren krampf­haft die Augen zu und bejahen in einer Art Selbst­ver­achtung, was ihnen wider­fährt, und wovon sie wissen, warum es fabriziert wird. Uneingestanden ahnen sie, ihr Leben werde ihnen vollends unerträglich, sobald sie sich nicht länger an Befrie­di­gungen klammern, die gar keine sind.“
Theodor W. Adorno, Gesammelte Schriften, Band 10.1, Kulturkritik und Gesellschaft I/II Ohne Leitbild. Parva Aesthetica, Résumé über Kulturindustrie, S. 342, Frankfurt/M. 2003.
