Minecraft Creator Bought Aphex Twin’s ‘Caustic Window’ For Over $46,000


Remember when I posted that the long lost Aphex Twin album Caustic Window had surfaced and was going for the steep price of $13,500 on Discogs? And then remember how a Kickstarter came about that got to buy the album and then give supporters a digital copy? Well, that test pressing was then auctioned on eBay and it looks like Minecraft creator Notch won the auction at the oh so reasonable price of $46,300. You know, basically on par with a thrift shop find.

A portion of the auction’s proceeds will go to charity, so there is always that! Head below to stream the album as well as see Notch’s tweet.

    what does this have to do with horror?

    • ChildoftheKoRn

      Aphex twins, some folks find their videos horrific. spending that much money for a handful of songs, thats pretty horrific. Boasting about spending alot of money for a handful of songs “from the 90’s” that could be considered horrific. What about this post isn’t?

      Watch the video for Come To Daddy, Windowlicker or Rubber Johnny.
      They’re almost as horrific as the thought of another Friday The 13th reboot.

      Most of BD these days isn’t horror related, if you haven’t noticed.

    If it wasn’t for a remix of Nine Inch Nails The Perfect Drug, I don’t think I would even be aware of their existence.
