Almost 25 years to the day from its original release in 1996, Warp Records is releasing a special anniversary edition of Squarepusher’s debut album “Feed Me Weird Things”.
Originally released on the now inactive Rephlex label, Feed Me Weird Things has not been available on streaming platforms until now and simultaneously out of print for more than a decade. Today it’s announced it will be reissued on (2 x 12” 1 x 10” + booklet), deluxe casebound book CD, and all digital formats.
This special edition of Tom Jenkinson’s debut album has been remastered from the original DATs and features two extra tracks which were first released on the B-side of the Squarepusher Plays… EP and later featured on the original Japanese release of this album. The edition also includes a 16-page booklet with personal photographs, ephemera, and candid notes from Tom Jenkinson, throwing light on the early days of his career.
Feed me Weird Things was a bold, brave and highly dynamic debut from the British producer perfectly laying the foundation for his signature advanced bass playing and exxtraordinarily complex rhythmic sequences.
The album is held in high regard with Aphex Twin and it’s generally considered that the pair, despite a close friendship, provide healthy competition particulaly in the mid-90s when both were so critical to developing the genere. Aphex Twin curated the track list for Feed Me Weird Things from tapes that Squarepusher had given him and the record includes sleeve notes written by him too, the only time he has done so for another artist:
The Squarepusher is someone who wonders what the holes of a flute sound like without the flute. Sound like sound never sounded before, Richard Rodgers and Julie Andrews gave us the Sound of music, John Cage and Simon and Garfunkel gave us the Sound of silence and now the Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.PRicahrd D.Jams aka Aphex Twin (taken from the original ‘Feed Me Weird Things’ sleevenotes).
