Aphex Twin: The Clink, London

Ian Watson, Melody Maker, 9 November 1996

Video screens by the stage give a camera's eye view of someone wandering around the waxwork exhibits at this converted prison, checking out the fake rotting corpses and skeletons, so maybe our man's taking in the sights before joining us.
