Aphex Twin has fully lived up to his reputation as something of an eccentric in a new interview, during which he said he believes 9/11 was "absolutely" an inside job.

The singer, who recently released his new album Syro, is known for his facetious answers to interviewers' questions.

In a new interview with Q, he was asked to define his politics, to which he responded: "Ooh, where do you start? The whole world is totally fucked, basically."

He went on to say that the September 11 attacks on New York were "absolutely" an inside job. "When you follow stuff on the internet about Illuminati, New World Order, aliens, even if none of it's true, it's just a thousand times better than any science fiction film that's ever been written."

When he was pushed on whether he actually believes in these things, he said: "I do believe pretty much all of it. You can't only believe things which can be proven. It's boring. Loads of things are unproven, but it doesn't stop you believing in them."

Aphex Twin's excellent new album Syro is out now.
