Reclusive electronic music pioneer Richard James, known by his nom de plume Aphex Twin, has updated his Soundcloud bio to clarify his views on Covid-19 and share his latest opinions on governments using the pandemic as justification for taking rights from their respective populaces.  

“..had a lot of Pm’s, tried to answer a lot of them individually but to the ones I didn’t reply to: I definitely don’t think Covid is a hoax, I’m just very worried about the erosion of civil and human rights and how we are to get them back.”

Responding to a user comment on his Soundcloud, he expressed concerns on the suppression of rights to assembly on the political process: “I mean what if we the people are not happy about any other government policies, we now can’t have more than 6 people in a protest, what are we to do?” The UK  has recently enacted rules limiting the numbers of participants in any given protest to 6 people.

Speaking in regard to UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s t advice that artists should seek another profession, Aphex Twin wrote, “Got very upset about Rishi Sunak, UK minister the other day saying musicians should retrain…I mean really, ffs?”

The statements follow a series of cryptic billboards and wheat-pastings with Aphex Twins iconic logo across the globe.
