It will be aphex, the only way it would say secret is to keep the aphex hype capped so fans of other artists get a look in getting tickets.
Not even a consideration it would be BoC. I'll paypal you £10 if it is Echelon.
Other option would be that they got a well known artist to DJ that is not on Warp.

Yeah I do realize that it probably isn't them. It is fun to speculate but to misquote what Fredd-E said to me 'Never get your hopes up with BoC.'

I've honestly taken Mozart's approach on this and I'll give myself 10% regarding this. I'll gladly take the 10 as long as I don't have to give anything back if I'm wrong though :P

Edit: Concerning Aphex Twin, it was recently announced that they're screening his live performance in Manchester on the first floor of Duo. Would be odd if Aphex Twin was performing upstairs while a show of his was screening on the first floor.

I wonder if it will be an official recording. I was there that night and i'd love to relive it in high quality.

Well regardless of who it is, I cannot find any info anywhere about what happened at the event.

Turns out it was a surprise !!! set, makes sense since they had a three day string of shows in Japan before this. Seems unlikely anyone else played with them but from the few clips I've seen their set sounded funky as fuck :)

Like I said, I never put down any money when Geogandi bet me about BOC being there. But since my fandom is only three years old I still have optimism. My eyes are still bright but come 6 years with 2 more remixes and Chinook getting a wide spread release maybe not :P

I wonder if the three exclamation marks were a clue. If it was ChkChkChk though i'm not sure why they would be secret.
At this point, I don't really care.

So it's been a while, and I still can't find the source of where "the wait for the next album won't be as long" came from. It wasn't mdg. Was it something someone said out of wishful thinking and it caught on?

The BOC YouTube page finally gave XYZ its own playlist... Sorry guys, ran out of interesting observations to make :P

I am sure they are busy working on their next project... they still seem motivated judging by their most recent work... my hopes are for some sort of video album like the the wall or a live show in tamdem with an album... I still want to hear more guitar drone tracks and shoegaze tracks from them...fingers crossed!... ;)

It wasn't MDG to the best of my recollection, it also wasn't a rumor or wishful thinking that caught on or was misinterpreted. I can't recall where I read the interview text from around the release of TH, but quite a few of us here also recall reading said interview. It wasn't a transcript uploaded by a user or anything of that nature, either, it was quite a well known publication.

Will attempt to dig it up and get back to you here.

All it amounts to is "we aspire to leave a less of a gap this time" inevitably, though. Whenever they say they intend to do something, it means they will work towards it but nothing is set in stone as far as we can see historically. Otherwise we would have had a BoC film and Chris Morris on bass by now; that said, how do we know Chris Morris didn't play bass on one of their tracks? There is some decent live bass guitar on XYZ...

Sorry, I am going on about different subjects loosely connected again. Oh well :mrgreen:

I also read that interview, I don’t remember which thread it was in and i thought it was also just on bocpages too but haven’t been able to find it.... might have been a blog interview or from a new magazine... i seem to recall the guy who contacted them and was able to pre-listen to it and he also posted a brief pre-review of each track listed with his thoughts about each... if that may jog your memory a little... it was around that time... I remember because of what he said about Jacquard Causeway... that it was blissful and reminded him of Dayvan Cowboy if I remember correctly.... even if it wasn’t that one it was around that time..

I think the interview was in a British newspaper, I can't remember which.. Maybe the Independant? Or perhaps that was just a Tomorrow's Harvest album review..

Can't remember but I'm sure it was an interview

Soul_Slip and Luminousdusk both recall as I do, yes. It was a well known British newspaper (it may have been the Guardian), and as far as I can recall, they did have early access to the album. The interview came in late May or early June and I think it was an email conducted via email and the interviewer made a point of mentioning it, although that could be me confusing it with another.

can't believe I missed the "Look Sad Reel" video clip from Tomorrow's Harvest listening party from Hell Interface Youtube Channel... I absolutely love the broken VHS visuals and the warped vocals..... genius...
VHS recording has become a huge staple in a lot of my newer tracks and productions.... it has a certain "crunchy", wide stereo sound that is unique to that format... also certain tape formulations have their own "color" that is unlike that of certain tape decks but in a different light... just picked up a broadcast Panasonic multitrack VHS recorder that has some unique audio, speed, and pitch features which also has a midi sync function and built in vhs effects for weird visuals if I want to make music videos or music video albums.... very analog sounding... very twoismish/TH vibe... has 4 xlr i/o too! now I want to find a mixing board from that suite/era....

I spoke to Joyrex about this phantom quote from MDG and/or the brothers and it turns out it was said to him in an email from MDG in 2014. Reproduced with his permission, MDG said: "What I can say is that there's clearly a desire to get a new record out soon, ie not years away like last time."

Make of it what you will, but personally I feel the brothers wanted to make the record quicker but life got in the way again. But Societas X Tape was a statement of "We're still alive and working" just give it a bit longer.

That is interesting and thank you for going to the trouble. This basically means that it was said twice, though, as most do recall reading a 2013 written interview in which one of the brothers states that it wouldn't be as long a gap between releases. I am not sure why it has vanished, or perhaps it wasn't worded in the ways that I have been searching for it.

It could also be us misremembering (is that not a word? Spellcheck could only suggest 'dismembering' which isn't quite the one) it in unison, but given the details that are recollected, that seems unlikely somehow.
