Did you know Aphex Twin was once a miner and used his dosh to buy analog gear to make techno?

Find out more tid bits in this old Channel 4 TV show, which features John Peel on the road visiting some pit where protestant radical John Wesley lorded it up as an Aphex Twin of the 18th century (probably a large stretch of the imagination).
