Back in 1994, there were plans for releasing an LP of music from Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin, under his “Caustic Window” moniker on his own label, Rephlex Records.
This album, though recorded, never saw the light of day. Only 4 people at the time were known to have a vinyl test pressing of the album – Richard James, Chris Jeffs (aka Cylob), Grant Wilson-Claridge (co-founder of Rephlex Records) and Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq). Each person was sworn to never make copies of the music, and for 20 years, the LP little more than a rumor.
One of the few copies of the Caustic Window LP was listed on eBay, purchased as a Kickstarter project (with the blessing of James & Replex Records) and ripped for project supporters.
The LP has been relisted on eBay to raise money for charity.
