The Xylem Tube EP is an early EP by electronic music artist Richard D. James, commonly known by his pseudonym of Aphex Twin. It was his second release under the Aphex Twin alias on R&S Records of Belgium, the alias he used for all of his releases on this label.
This EP premiered the Aphex Twin logo. The title logo would then be used again for his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II, albeit in an extremely distorted version.
Xylem Tube EP was released exclusively on vinyl in June 1992. All the songs on this EP can be found on the 1994 compilation of early Aphex Twin material Classics, also released by R&S Records following his success on Warp Records.
The EP consists of four unusual acid house songs, including the A-sides "Polynomial-C" with its arpeggios, and "Tamphex", a repetitive dance track featuring a looping sample of a Tampax tampon advertisement.
