AFX Hangable Auto Bulb
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Warp
With original vinyl copies of Hangable Auto Bulb and HAB Volume 2 undoubtedly changing hands for absurd figures on eBay, the time is ripe for a CD reissue to thwart collector scum-and to mark the EPs' 10-year anniversary. These tracks by AFX (Aphex Twin, Richard D. James) epitomize that brief moment when IDM icons were madly mutating drum & bass into crazy-angled grotesqueries that knotted any limbs attempting to move to them. HAB is the jape that eluded throwaway kitschness and became a touchstone for unfettered mindfuckery in the studio, by any pharmaceutical means necessary.
