“We waste our lives in half truths and nonsense. We waste them.”
I just talked about this with a friend: the most inspiring moment I witnessed as a kid, was when I was about thirteen years old and I was watching Rock School on BBC2. It was an educational program where youngsters were being explained how to make music. In that particular episode there was a demonstration by Vince Clark [the original synth-player of Depeche Mode, later Yazoo and Erasure]. He was surrounded by synths and was making a track. It really was a eureka-moment. What I remembered the most was that there was a coffee mug on his computer, next to that a Happy Shopper-bag. I didn’t know this type of world existed. Here’s someone in a room full of synths, it looked like just his own fucking room, he’s drinking tea, he just went to a shop to get himself a cake, and he makes a track in five minutes. When I saw that I knew it: that’s the life I want! That excerpt is my biggest inspiration ever. Not that I didn’t like his music, I did, but I was mainly in love with his lifestyle. Making music from the security of your own room, that was my dream and I’ve realized that years ago.’
do people understand the importance of this clip… without this video there would be no aphex twin. richard david james would probably still be a nerdy coder / programmer in cornwall.

Brightside - Next Time, I’ll Be Deadly Serious
On the cosmic plain
On the couch
Figure it out
You’ll be an infinite run
Of the mouth
Like a portrait
In a frame
Like a last comma first
Like a middle name
It will linger
It will pace
It will resonate
It will stay
From the new Brightside LP “Now and Loud”
