Thank god for that.
sounds mental, he has a tendency to do that! half this stuff online could be Warp's marketing the other half just crazy fans putting up fake stuff, what ever it is its working. but of course thousands would be buying anyway, it has been 13 years after all.
he's played gigs in the Barbican which you'd think would show off his genius composer side, apparently they did to an extent,but he also went fully mental with ryuichi sakamoto type sounds. hopefully he's a good balance on the new release anyway.
