    Default Aphex Twin Plans Rare Live Appearances

    Too bad it is all in Europe..but it may mean he could be coming out of hibernation...W00t!



    http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/articl...ve-appearances

    Mystery is Aphex Twin's bread and butter. He who is known to his mother as Richard D. James hasn't released an album under the Twin moniker since 2001's Drukqs. While he'll own up to his AFX work, James may or may not be responsible for that Tuss EP. And aside from his label Warp's site and a six-year-old Drukqs micro-site, he has no real web presence of which to speak.

    And yet, the guy expects to come waltzing back into our lives like nothing ever happened when he plays four European shows in December. Whatever, mister, you've got a lot of explaining to do! Is that lipstick on your collar?

    James' first show goes down December 1 in Rome, but, in keeping with the mystery, no one knows where quite yet. The one date we previously reported is his appearance at the Portishead-curated edition of All Tomorrow's Parties' Nightmare Before Christmas festival, which takes place in Minehead, England from December 7-9.

    Dates:

    12-01 Rome, Italy - TBA
    12-07 Manchester, England - Warehouse Sessions *
    12-07-09 Minehead, England - Butlins Holiday Centre (ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas)
    12-14 The Hague, Netherlands - Paard (State-X New Forms Festival)

    * with Luke Vibert

    On the subject of shows in Europe this looks pretty cool too...



    Sigur Ros, Justice, Paul McCartney Play Electric Proms
    Fledgling Acoustic Proms festival settles for Ray LaMontagne and that guy in your dorm who's always playing "Creep"
    For some of us, a local band covering Weezer songs is perfectly fine prom music. But leave it to the folks at the BBC to show everybody up with the lineup of its second annual Electric Proms festival.

    This year's Electric Proms includes sets from Paul McCartney, Sigur Rós (an acoustic performance following a screening of Heima), Justice, Ray Davies, Kano, the Chemical Brothers, Charlie Louvin, Editors, Siouxsie Sioux, the Coral, and Cold War Kids. The festival will also feature a few special collaborations in the form of Mark Ronson's appearance alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra, Lily Allen, Paul Weller, and others, and a Kaiser Chiefs set arranged by Grammy winning James Bond film composer David Arnold.

    In addition to Heima, the festival will feature screenings of a few movies, including Daft Punk's Electroma, the Beatles' Help!, and the Flaming Lips' U.F.O.s at the Zoo.

    Electric Proms takes place this year in venues around London from October 24-28, and the BBC will broadcast festival performances on several of its radio and television stations.

    I don't know if your name is Richard, but I was talking about Richard D. James.

    Either way, because I haven't seen him since UCLA and that annoys me.

    I have no clue why Pitchfork posted that article. Most of those appearances were known months ago, so it wasn't a huge shock when he announced another show.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    When it's a slow news day you have to improvise.

    I wish I was going to be at those shows!
