April 12th - Beard of the Day - Richard D. James


The first gameday beard of a new playoff season calls for something original and innovative, and it's with that we present Richard D. James, the man better known as the groundbreaking electronic act Aphex Twin. Over the course of James' lengthy career, he's pioneered countless new sounds and techniques in the field, and has shown a propensity for plastering his creepy bearded visage all over his album covers and in his music videos (seriously, some are downright disturbing). He's been less prolific recently, but his back catalog is full of excellent cuts, such as the jam selected below, once again with an appropriate title.
