Aphex Twin SAWII Sleeve Notes On CS-5

Original album text etched by RDJ      17/01/22

Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works 2 was released in 1994, and it's front cover is the result of RDJ scratching the Aphex Twin logo onto the back of a leather travel case. The sleeve notes are another story, having been scratched into the back of a Yamaha CS-5 monosynth, which was later owned by an artist called Solvent. 

In the above video Solvent talks about making an EP with the synth entitled 'RDJCS5ep' - which appears to be a promotional springboard for a subsequent sale on ebay (does anyone know a final selling price?). For those after more weird merch, how about a 'Come To Daddy' snowboard
