Aphex Twin has added himself to the list of people who believe the US Government was responsible for 9/11. In an interview with Q, the DJ/producer claimed the events of 11 September 2001 were 'absolutely' an inside job, because he's watched Loose Change on Youtube a few times. He also said he subscribed to theories relating to the Illuminati, NWO, aliens blah blah blah.
I always liked the gumption of the Loose Change crowd. It's incredibly brave to believe that a malevolent, omnipotent government executed a plan of such precise magnitude, only to be exposed by a couple of high-school drop-outs from upstate New York. You'd think of all people they could have silenced those little rascals!
Obviously, truthers tend to disregard the fact that very few academics, intellectuals, think-tanks or employed people subscribe to conspiracy theories, preferring to bang on about steel's melting point and sheeple. But hey, they must all be in on it too.
Somehow I think Aphex Twin might just be trolling. 'You can't only believe things which can be proven. It's boring.' It's always worth drumming up a bit of publicity when you haven't released an album in 13 years.
