and i guess i spoke too soon. wiki finally tells me the answer

Booth and Brown pronounce the name Autechre with a Rochdale accent (IPA [ɔˈtɛk.ə] — approximately "awe-teh-ker").[3] However, they have explained that the name Autechre can be pronounced in any way anyone sees fit.[1] Booth explains: "The first two letters were intentional, because there was an 'au' sound in the track, and the rest of the letters were bashed randomly on the keyboard. We had this track title for ages, and we had written it on a cassette, with some graphics. It looked good, and we began using it as our name."[4] They are also commonly referred to by the moniker "Ae."

Just a warning though. Some brits get irritated when they hear people say hear people say au-tech-reh. It's considered a vulgar american pronounciation. However, that's actually a pretty good reason to say it that way.

I saw Radiohead in 01 and Thom kept going on about how Americans pronounce the Beta Bands name.

it's the only time I've ever heard it pronounced.
when I first saw it I thought it was "ah-tesh-reh" which is even worse, since I thought it was french or something (like I thought Sondre Lerche was french which is far from the truth), and it's not like I know french.

He was like its the Bet A Band not the Beta Band. Theres a bootleg of it. You probably have heard it.

nope. I didn't even like radiohead before 2003.
I have no sympathy for people who can't pronounce "Beta"
and what's Thom ridiculing people for? Has anyone seen Meeting People Is Easy? The man can't even read off of a piece of paper.

You would have loved it. It was an awesome show. I saw them at the Santa Barbara Bowl that tour too from the pit. I was super lucky.
