A lottery for a listening party in this day and age? Why bother...this album will probably be leaked all over the internet in a matter of days.

It has been leaked BTW. Have your own listening party.

HA! Warp is charging 4 extra dollars for the 24 bit version of the album. Fucking dumb.

Friend, that was priceless. Thank you. I smile as I plow through this rare Billyburger and eagerly await my BabyCake cupcake.

Time for us all to wax up our mustaches, break out our designer flannel, and listen to some Aphex Twin as Richard D. James would want it.

10:51 spells it "jip" - is clueless to the fact that it's a completely racist term. Nice one, champ.

Just checked my email today. I was pretty shocked. I won a ticket in the Lottery for Aphex Twin in LA from Warp. I was pretty stoked upon winning, but sad since i won't be able to go. If i had a little more time for traveling accommodations the story would be different. Bummer ):

Life has handed you lemons, make some lemonade man.

^ or a squeeze or two upon a hummus platter is a good idea as well.
(I find the sourness to add an interesting flavor when I'm feeling wild and adventurous)

I was there, and the new album sounds VERY much like the 2nd Herman's Hermits record.
