This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.

A couple of reminders, swiftly. There’s a new issue of Uncut in UK shops now; follow the link to read all about it, or at least me whingeing about a royal wedding 30 years ago. Also, yesterday, I reposted the transcript of my Robert Wyatt interview from 2007, to mark the great man’s 70th birthday. Lots of good stuff in there; not least, as someone pointed out on Twitter to me, the beautiful image of Robert Graves hugging Cecil Taylor…
