Autechre is a band of two British blokes from Manchester. Not Sheffield, no. They've been making wonderous experimental electronic futuristic music for over ten years, and always had good response from press and public alike - they're their genre's superstars. Autechre consists of Rob Brown and Sean Booth, and they are probably in their studio/s working on something wicked right now.

This community is geared towards all Autechre fans, old and new, those who only like the old ae or only like the new ae, or even people who just like to ponder about sound sculptures and complex/beautiful music or want to read what people think of them.

So basically, if you like, love and/or can't live without autechre, this is the place you can talk about them and everything related to them.

It is preferred that you write a short introductary post when you sign up, just so that we can all get to know each other better. You can let it wait til later or out-right cancel it if you like, though.
Alternatively, you can send the moderator, genkobar, an email with bits about you at "cucular at isl dot is".

I myself have heard it pronounced awe-tek-reh, awe-tesh-ray, ah-teh-shray, ah-tek-ray, ah-tek-er,
ah-te-ker, ah-tetsh-er. It only matters how you like to say it.
