    i asked this in another thread and only got one answe- confirming my doubts. When the hell has Aphex Twin put on a killer live show? I've one word of mouth review from like 97 and it was a sham of a show, he was basically pissing on the crowd. I've never read a review that he went all basement jaxx- i don't think the guy can pull it off out of the studio. just cause you like to tweak out to the licker video in your bedroom do you really think he deserves that much marquee in the desert?
    tell me, what does he bring?

    All Basement Jaxx?

    I've never heard a horrible set of him, and I've listenad a lot, maybe around 100. I think it depends on what music you like, if you want him to sound like Underworld or Basement Jaxx, then probably you are looking in the wrong direction. He used to play mostly idm, jungle, and drill and bass, but lately he has been doing a lot of acid techno and even hip hop/breaks. If he plays in the US, he probably won't draw international (Europe) crowd but I'm sure a lot of people in the US/Canada would fly just to see him. Don't expect them to be 50 000 persons, though. He's not Radiohead, yet.

    You just need to see him live. The 97 show was amazing. R. James stage set up was this broke down ghetto livingroom with 10' neon teddy bears beating the shit out of each other. Also seen him a few years later DJing in London and he tore up the place. He had everyone so pumped. Daft Punk was the only other preforms that I have seen that could get a crowd into such a frenzy.
    Blah...Blah...Blah...
