I've been bored of him for a while on Twitter even though I mostly agree with him. It's more to do with the mob than it is to do with him. He's certainly a figurehead for irelands woke fake left and I think it's them that people are actually bored of.

I don't bother with him for the same reasons. Never have. But fair play to him, he seems to be doing a good thing.

I see Aphex has been getting a bit of grief the last few days....?! Probably calmed down by now though.

What for?
A lot of people bitching about him getting a big payday for playing some festival in Mexico, while playing other people's music in his set.

Think the one he did in New York the other night he played mostly his own stuff, don't know whether that was in response to the sniping.

Honestly I think he needs a good take down. He’s been a bit “Emperor’s new clothes” for years now and I’ve realised he’s much more of a marketing project than a musical one at this stage. You’d swear no one did any electronic music ever apart from him.

The marketing shenanigans are beyond irritating now at this stage alright. I'll still keep an eye on what he's doing (that last EP wasn't bad), but the returns are definitely diminishing alright! Some mates went over to Italy to see him last year and said it was grand and all, but I don't think I'd be that fussed seeing him play anymore.

his ego & disdain for his fans is palpable.
he really likes to fuck with them.
good music but unfortunately he thinks he's the absolute tits and it shows a fair bit

Would you be surprised that he thinks he’s great given that he’s almost credited with inventing electricity AND music, let alone simply being a decent electronic musician.
