So two war films in a row the 'gloriously-grime-blood-soaked and muddy Fury – the inside of a tank with Brad Pitt – the sound is remarkable - wonderful but alongside the usual madness and futility of war it’s a little wearing. American Sniper - feels on reflection initially like an advert for military action - anywhere - just let me at em! – very Gung Ho with shot after shot of heads and bodies exploding under the waving American flag but I think it’s more nuanced – leaving you with many questions and lots of grey area.

Meanwhile a little late but I’m busy wading through the 100 or so tracks that Aphex Twin has downloaded to soundcloud – most excellent so far vocoder disco has caught my ear?
