Planet-µ Records have announced an expanded version of the hugely underrated Mike & Rich album ‘Expert Knob Twiddlers’ on 2nd September.

The album features Mike Paradinas (µ-Ziq) and Richard James (Aphex Twin), revisiting an album originally released on the defunkt Rephlex Records in 1996.  Featuring the original 10 album tracks (remastered for this issue), eight previously unreleased tracks are also included, dug “from the vaults” to complete this revival.

  3. Jelly Fish
  4. Eggy Toast

The MP3 containing snippets of the tracks from the Mike & Rich SoundCloud account was removed but has now returned.  Fortunately I nabbed it before it disappears again and is HERE if you want it.  Mike Paradinas has uploaded Track 11 to his SoundCloud page, and there’s also a like to the Planet-µ Site where you can preorder the album in CD, download, vinyl and limited cassette editions, as well as a poster and a t-shirt.


The track list is from the Soundcloud page, and somewhat contradicts what appears on the Planet-µ page.  Will update as soon as I know more …
