Significant as it was, Squarepusher‘s Feed Me Weird Things never found its way onto streaming services or download stores. That will change with a June 4th reissue of his 1996 debut album on Aphex Twin‘s Warp Records.
The 25th anniversary edition will also arrive in CD and vinyl record format after the label ended physical manufacture of the original album over a decade ago. Included will be “Theme From Goodbye Renaldo” and “Deep Fried Pizza,” both of which originally appeared on the English producer’s Squarepusher Plays… EP from the same year.
A 16-page booklet of photos and notes will also accompany the reissue.
Squarepusher (real name Tom Jenkinson) delivered Feed Me Weird Things after several years of producing music during the early ’90s, when dance music stratified into innumerable genres. His IDM, 8-bit and electronic jazz-adjacent brand of drum and bass also finally caught the attention of Ninja Tune and R&S Records. In the end, though, he turned down both of their offers to release his first studio-length effort on Warp.
Jenkinson has maintained a consistent pace of releases in the 25 years since, having released 16 full albums in total. In January 2020 he delivered Be Up A Hello followed by a five-song EP titled Lamental, also by way of Warp Records.
